    Amazing Battery Life

    Use this on my XA-10. Once calibrated according to the directions in the XA-10 this battery displays accurately how much time is remaining on the battery and it changes during different modes. For example if playing video it shows one time, if recording with the LCD screen another and if recording using the viewfinder another. This initial calibration takes a long time because it requires fully charging the battery then discharging the battery until completely discharged while in use. Then afterwards the battery will display an accurate reading from then on. Recommend purchasing the CG-800 battery charger it charges the battery in apx 4.3 hours vs. 6.4 hours charging in the camera.

    Doesn't last as long on HFG30/XA20

    I'm not blaming the battery so much as I am the camcorder. The HFG30/XA20 are power hungry. I used to last 5hrs of battery life, but now I get less than 3hrs....Read complete review

    I'm not blaming the battery so much as I am the camcorder. The HFG30/XA20 are power hungry. I used to last 5hrs of battery life, but now I get less than 3hrs. I don't even have the wifi function on. What gives?

        Compatible with the Canon XA20, as the product description claims. Quick to charge and works well to extend shoot time when away from a power source.

        Use this with my Canon G10 and XA10 cameras. It's so much better than the generic batteries. Save yourself the aggravation of compatibility problems and charging problems and get the real canon battery.

              I've only had this battery about a week, but I like having a more powerful battery as a back-up to the battery that came with the Canon Vixia HF G30. I don't know of any downside yet...so far, working very well, as described, and as it should.

                          I had this battery for two weeks only so I cannot provide a complete review. But I have been using Canon batteries for my Digital SLR and HV2 Camcorder and they have performed well. I have been using tehse batteries for over 4 years and they are still working great. In my experience Canon Original batteries are reliable and long lasting.

                          This is larger than the standard little battery that comes with the camera and gives about an extra hour. With fully charged standard and this one you have around 5 hrs recording time. As always B&H gets them to you right away. Mine came next day after ordering. And great customer service from staff suggesting what I need.

                            Comments about Canon BP-828 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (2670mAh):

                            The Canon Batteries have always served us well with our XA-10.

                                The BP-828 lasts twice as long as the one that came with my XA20 camcorder. I'll give it 5 stars in spite of the pricetag.

                                You have to have a backup battery so buy one before it's too late!

                                  This battery will last twice as long as the supplied Canon battery with the xa20. No problems in cold weather either. This battery will stick a good inch and a half out of the back of the camera but worth the extra life. Alittle pricey, otherwise perfect.

                                    It is a little expensive but last twice as long as the battery that came with the camera. I got the charger too and I am glad I did! I would recommend this product.
