    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.

    Good battery

    Comments about Watson LP-E8 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1100mAh):

    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.

                    So far, so good. Battery charged in the Cannon charger. It powers the camera (T3i). Only time will tell if it holds up well.

                                      Charges and holds charge just like a canon battery. I have several watson batteries for my Canons, nikons, fujifilms, they all work just fine. No reason to pay the extra money for a brand name battery.

                                          So far this battery works as well as my Canon did when I first got it with my camera. (That was about a year ago and now the battery dies fairly fast.)
                                          I'm really happy with how this works for the photos I take, it also really helps having two battery packs now!

                                            So far I love this battery! I think that it has just as much life as the canon battery.

                                                I received this in a kit. IT's a lot cheaper than the canon battery which works for me.

                                                There is no major difference in my opinion from one battery to the next. All the brands I have tried have worked for me. (The charger for watson is awesome though) Anyway, just buy a battery to have a second one. It is simple and better then fearing your camera died when you battery finally fails.

                                                      Can't get any better for the price. And they last as long as the Canon batteries.
