The Canon BP-727 High Capacity Intelligent Battery Pack is a lithium-ion battery. The battery is designed to resist the effects of "memory effect" so the battery continues to last just as long between charges as it did when it was new.

The Intelligent Battery Pack communicates remaining running time and sends data back to the XF-series Professional Camcorders, so the user is well-informed at all times. On the outside of the battery, four LED lamps allow battery life to be viewed

    I ordered this for my Canon Vixia HF R300. The battery that comes with the camcorder is aweful! (only provides about 18-25 mins recording time)
    THIS battery however, gave me just over 3 hours recording time at maximum quality! Excellent!

    The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of the full 5 is because this battery is OVER ONE THIRD the price of the entire camera I purchased. Sheeeesh! It is very expensive, but it does get the job done.

    Another note to be aware of, when they say this thing is 3X as big as the little battery that comes with the Canon Vixia HF R300, they mean it!
    It sticks out the back a good bit, but I didn't find it to hinder my filming ability one bit. It obviously increases the weight slightly as well, but the camera is already tiny and light to begin with, so no complaints here.

    Side note: I also purchased 2 64gig Patriot brand, Class 10, UHS, SDXC (Ultra High Speed, Secure Digital Extended Compacity) cards for memory for my camera. Each one provides over 5 hours of footage at maximum quality.
    The playback was 99% smooth as butter once I brought it home and played it on the HD TV.

    My recommendation: definitely buy it if money isn't too much of an issue. It will give you the battery life that you WILL need if you plan on doing any extending amounts of filming at one time. For a solid days worth of footage at least 2 would be necessary, but 3 of these batteries would be more appropriate.

    Recharge IS NOT fast... at least a solid 8 hours.

    Cheers!

    The battery added 3 hours to my VIXIA R300 camcorder. While that might not sound like much, it's a vast improvement over the 30 minute life of the standard battery. The price seems too steep for this but if you're getting a VIXIA camera, this guy is basically required.

          Comments about Canon BP-727 High Capacity Intelligent Battery Pack:

          We film hunting, fishing, and outdoor videos. In these situations, the camera must often be left in stand-by mode so it is ready to be activated for quick action. Needless to say, it is often left there for extended periods of time when things are slow. The BP-727 offers over 200 minutes of life, even more when left on stand-by. This keeps you in the game and not trying to change a battery when a deer strolls by or the big fish hits! I got two, one was a gift for my son, the other for myself. We are headed to Alaska this summer, and will be wilderness fishing off the grid. That's the other benefit of extended battery life. When your someplace where you can not re-charge your battery pack!

              I have a Vixia Hf M500 and use my camera for filming. The battery that came with it wasn't getting the job done so I looked this up and decided to order it. I'm very pleased! It does the job and can last much more longer than the smaller battery that came with the camera.

                Highly recommend as a primary battery. Charges through the camera.

                      This battery was to coincide with a camera that had reviews of poor battery life. I bought this to eliminate an concern or worries that I might have while having my wedding filmed. It filmed the wedding, the reception and some still frames inbetween with over 90 minutes left after the day was over.

                        Product exactly as advertised and at a great cost. Super fast shipping and quality item. Don't buy those aftermarket cheap batteries that only sometimes work with your equipment. Only buy quality items made for your actual Canon Video Camera. Why invest in a top level camera and buy cheap parts that go with it? You wouldn't do that with an expensive car would you? Same with electronics.

                            This may be the last and only battery that you will use with your camcorder. To date I have not been able to run out of battery in a normal days recording. It is bigger than the standard battery, but the extra wieght is not noticeable, and the size is not excessive. Over all the extra money and size are more than worth it.

                              This gives my camera more time to record longer videos without changing battery packs all of the time.

                                    It's a battery. You have to pay the premium for the official Canon battery if you want it to communicate with the camera and provide charge level information.
