      This battery was a great deal. An off brand battery at a big name electronics store cost me more than double. It's too early to tell yet, but if it retains the charge as well as the other brands-I will gladly purchase it again.

      I ordered two of these batteries and one was DOA.[...] I think these are good backup batteries but I wouldn't put them in the same league as the OEM Canon NB-6L batteries. You get what you pay for.

                I bought this Watson battery for my canon sx280. It works great just like the canon battery but less expensive. Fits the charger and camera without problems. Highly recommend for the cost.

                  The Watson NB-6L battery is reliable, charges fast, and lasts as long as can be expected. I use it with a Canon SX500IS camera, which uses up battery power fast, so for a busy day's shooting I have three batteries. The Watsons serve well. Why the Canon NB-6L is so expensive beats me, so the Watson is the best alternative.

                      Was not able to take as many pics w/this as with the Canon battery that came with the camera. Maybe because of taking a few flash pics? Use zoom, daily. Not using the wifi or GPS features, in order to preserve battery's life.

                        This easy to access and wonderful NYC landmark made another trip to the city much more enjoyable! I saved half of the cost of a charger and battery compatible with my Canon camera! I rarely forget camera accessories at home - but I did on my last trip and was very happy to save half of the cost of these items!!! Thanks B&H - you rock as mail order and as a classic NYC experience!

                                    No difference between this and the original battery that was supplied with the camera other than the cost. Nice alternative.

                                        We got this battery as a back-up while on vacation. Only used it a couple of times as the OEM battery has good life. Would not spend extra money on OEM battery.

                                        First one shipped failed to take a charge. Of course the excellent customer service at B&H sent a replacement at no cost. I do not have high degree of confidence when I get a failure like this (engineering degree and 30 years experience). Replacement worked fine...time will tell if it holds up. Using as a back-up to the original Canon battery. Sometimes saving money (over Canon price) may not be worth it.

                                          Use as back-up so my wife will always have one battery ready. This fits and works well with no problems I have discovered after a couple of uses so far. (e.g., some aftermarket products fit poorly or require shim or holding the bottom tightly so the battery will work.) I have only had this about a month, but no problems at all.

                                                I've bought cheap Chinese knockoffs of lots of stuff and sometimes you can get away with it. Not with batteries. Pearstones may/may not be as good as the name-brand ones, but without actually running test, I can say they do actually work and last pretty long. The ultra-cheap ones don't last 10 minutes.

                                                    Although it doesn't possess the mAh rating of the Canon battery, due to the vastly different price, I feel that it will serve my purposes admirably.

                                                    Use this as a spare for my Canon SX260. I have it in the camera now to test and seems to be holding a charge similar to the stock Canon battery. I will know more after my trip to Spain. I give this 5 stars as a backup battery.
