      I'm disappointed in the original battery that came with the camera (Canon Rebel SL1), so this one, being the same product, performs the same. That said, as long as I turn off the LCD monitor (which I prefer anyway) and go to a few other measures to minimize battery usage, I got a full day's usage (and maybe a little more) out of each of these batteries on a recent 3 week trip to Africa. I took two backup batteries, (plus a backup camera and more backup batteries) which turned out to be much more than necessary, but the trip notes specified "spotty electricity", and I was not about to miss out on photos due to dead batteries.
      I had ordered a generic version of the battery (can't remember which one) and charged it at home, left it out overnight (not in the camera or the charger), and it took a good 30 minutes to recharge completely the next morning. So I returned it for the Canon version, after a lovely and helpful conversation with a B&H salesman. Free returns for the underperforming generic battery didn't hurt at all - love the B&H service!
      Again - major tip for saving battery life- do not leave in the device overnight. Keep 'em separate. This likely goes for all batteries of this type, and maybe the whole world already knows this, but I was unaware of just HOW MUCH drainage occurs just by leaving it in the camera for one night.
      My bottom line is - I may not have purchased this camera had I done a little more research, but this battery is probably the best one available for the product I did purchase.

      You'll need several

      These are small batteries, and if you're away from a charger, you'l need several. I now have four;-)

            I have a Canon 100D (Rebel SL1) and used two batteries. One was canon battery and the other was not. The other one always ran out so fast that I couldn't use it much to shoot videos.
            Thats why I got this new one and it works fine on my camera. I haven't had many chances to use it yet, so I need to test out more.

                    Great performance. Cost a little more, but I have the peace of mind of not worrying about how a third party battery might perform.

                    Works as advertised, and needed for any day outing. Canon batteries do give you more time than all the after market ones.

                          Bought a second hand canon sl1and it came with a vivitar battery which didn't last very long. So picked up canon battery from b&h and much happier. Good to have genuine article.

                                    Again - major tip for saving battery life- do not leave in the device overnight. Keep 'em separate. This likely goes for all batteries of this type, and maybe the whole world already knows this, but I was unaware of just HOW MUCH drainage occurs just by leaving it in the camera for one night.
                                    My bottom line is - I may not have purchased this camera had I done a little more research, but this battery is probably the best one available for the product I did purchase.

                                        I bought this as an extra battery for my daughter's Christmas present. I have learned that you really need an extra battery. While you can get cheaper batteries, I usually get better performance from the Canon brand.

                                              I bought this battery as a back-up to the one that came with my camera.

                                                Works well - sort of pricey, but I have had bad luck with off-brand batteries - not worth the risk, so I stay with Canon.

                                                    What can I say, it's a battery. I thought I would play it safe and stick with the Canon brand. So far so good.
