    I purchased this battery to use in a battery grip. I cannot notice any difference in the amount of time it takes to charge the battery nor the charge it holds when comparing it to a Canon battery. It's entirely possible that it's made in the same factory (since it's highly unlikely that Canon makes batteries).

    I do have concerns regarding warranty issues and what's covered in case the battery explodes, but since it's in a $150 battery grip, at least my loss would be somewhat reasonable and I'd be able to continue using the camera, just without the grip.

    Seems to have somewhat less capacity than the original battery, but not as much as it is cheaper. However, a more annoying is the fact that it doesn't display the remaining charge, so it dies instantly.

          Needing a back up battery, I chose the Watson brand, which has proved to be perfect for my needs. It seems to be on the same level as my original Canon with a more economical price point. Time will prove it's reliability...but so far so good.

              This battery is about half the price of Canon batteries, and other then a different name being printed on the battery, there is no difference. I will be buying more Watson batteries in the future for sure.

                      Battery lasts just as long as the Canon brand costing much more. Charge time is comparable as well.

                      Cant beat the price difference! Definitely recommend!

                      I've only had these for a few weeks. I bought them to hold me over while I travel through South Sudan. So for it's been good. However, I've shot less than 400 so I haven't found the limit of it's capacity.

                                              This more affordable battery works just as well as the canon version. Plus you save a bundle!
