Seriously, it's a battery. So far, it's worked as it should. I bought this one as a backup, and as my second battery when I eventually buy a battery grip. It charges and holds a charge. I charged it just before my family's recent weekend at Disney World and used the same battery all weekend (my original battery was charged and waiting in my camera bag). I shot about 300 pictures over the weekend. Of those, 7 were shot in JPEG, the rest were shot in RAW. After the weekend, my camera was still showing a full charge. Since we returned from our weekend vacation, I have shot another 180 pictures, all in RAW, all on the same battery, and it's still showing a full charge. So, I've got no complaints.

I had to buy this one because the original life ended because I leave the battery in camera and did not use it a few months.

I had to buy this one because the original life ended because I leave the battery in camera and did not use it a few months.
Don´t leale your battery in camera when not in use for long time if you dont want to spend more than necessary.

OEM Battery

By Bill

from Durham, NH

Comments about Canon LP-E5 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1080mAh):

Having read reviews on non-OEM batteries for my Canon, I decided I needed an original OEM battery. In my searches, I always go to B&H having bought numerous equipment over the years. Not only was I reassured of an OEM battery, I noted that the price was the best and shipping was free! The battery charged right up and performed for hours. I will continue to shop B&H Photo.

    Bought this as a replacement after trying a less expensive off brand. No comparison. Charges quickly and holds a charge longer.

          These batteries are great!! I would never use anything elase. They are long lasting. I thought I had a battery problem but as it turned out, it wasn't the battery at all so I returned it with no problem. The problem was that my camera card was nearly filled and this was causing the camera to show that I could only take a few dozen more photos. I would highly recommend this battery.

            My LP-E5 rechargeable battery pack mysteriously disappeared. While I could have purchased a generic battery pack more cheaply, I've come to rely on the durability and reliability of the Canon one.

                I have 2 batteries, one a Canon original that came with the camera I purchased and 2nd off-brand I purchased as a backup. After 4 years the Canon battery is still going strong. The off-brand swelled so now it doesn't fit in the camera's battery compartment. I just replaced it with a Canon battery. Spent a little more but know it will out last all the other brands.

                        With a full charge, the battery lasts several shoots (even when using flash)—a great long lasting battery. It even comes partially charged out of the box.

                              Don't risk a dead battery in your camera..I dread the photoshoot that I go to,and find my 'chip' was left in the computer, and/or my Camera battery is not charged. I now have a spare for both..

                                  This will be used for trips where I may not be able to recharge the original battery in a timely fashion.

                                  It works as well as the original battery, as expected.
