      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;-)

          Comments about Canon LP-E12 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 875mAh):

          After reading many reviews I decided to go with what I know. The two things I know are B&H has been my "Go To" for years now, they always have what I want, great prices, and the staff is second to none! The second thing I know is there are cheaper knock off brands, however, who wants to be in the middle of nowhere with a knock off battery thats getting not so good reviews. We all have invested in whatever brand we chose, I'm a Canon fan, so I went with the brand I knew and with the team I trust.

                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.

                                        Comments about Canon LP-E12 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 875mAh):

                                        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.

                                            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.

                                            Can't beat the price. In origanal Cannon packaging.
