      Watson batteries look cheap on the exterior (compared with Canon batteries), do not slide so easily into the battery compartment of my EOS M camera but they work fine otherwise. Third party batteries are cheap for a reason: the quality control is not great and one of the two batteries I ordered arrived completely discharged (the battery must arrive 50…60% charged - one or two bars). After charging, this battery didn't last more than few shots - the capacity of the battery was very low. The other battery seems to be as good as the original and it doesn't show signs of fatigue yet.B&H was great in replacing the bad battery - excellent customer support!In conclusion, assuming the bad battery was just an unfortunate incident, Watson LP-E12 replacement seems to be a decent choice for a Canon EOS M camera (I recommend 3…4 batteries especially when traveling).

      no same quality, good price

      I bougth this as a backup battery, and it is ok. for that. In my experience, alternative batteries operates for less time than original ones. The physical quality is not fair.

          used as a spare, it provides enough power for essentially the same number of shots ... does what i want for a fraction of the price of the brand name alternative.

                      I get about 200 images per charged battery on my EOS M, so a spare battery or two is a must. This one charges in same amount of time as the EOM battery and gets as many shots. It also holds the charge in the bag so I am assured a have a back up battery when on a day trip.

                        Charges just fine in the Canon charger. Seems to last about as long as the Canon battery.

                        It's just ever so slightly larger than the stock battery, making it difficult to get it out of the battery compartment.

                        Overall a good buy If your looking to save some money.

                                        I give these only 3 stars because I don't know how long they will last. I've only used them for about 2-months. Other 3rd party batteries have been less than durable, lasting only a few months. I bought these because they have a 1-year warranty. They fit snug and have worked well so far.

                                            A generic battery for the Canon EOS M...battery holds charge and works as a great back up battery. Price was also very favorable as well...

                                              I purchased this lower cost battery for my Canon SL1 (100D). I wanted a second battery to rotate for use with my camera without having to spend too much.
