I have always had a Canon camera, I tell everyone
its always best to use Canon accessories.
I remember when I had my D30 DSLR, I took a ride
up to Kent Falls Park to take some photos. I had
just started shooting when my battery went dead. I never really thought about having a spare battery & I should've made sure that it was fully charged before I started out. This was my first digital camera & for the longest time I still brought my EOS 1N film camera with me, it used double aa batteries & not rechargeables! But the digital bug had bitten me & after awhile I stopped bringing it, I still have it but I don't remember the last time I used it! I figured if & when I upgraded to a newer camera the first thing I'd do is get an extra battery & a spare memory card. When you're out in the field & far from home the last thing you need to do is to damage or fill your memory card & not have a spare & not have a spare battery! I currently use a Canon D40 DSLR & when the Canon Powershot G12 came out I bought one, I know several people that have a G series Powershot & all I hear about it is what a great little camera it is. This is my first digital point 'n shoot & its making a believer out of me!!!I really hate saying it twice about not having spares, but all you need is to have this happen to you once & you'll want to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Used in my Canon G10 camera and charged with the external charger. I've got two of these batteries, one main and one used as a spare. After storing the spare for six months fully charged, it will not charge AT ALL and battery is completely dead. It has probably been charged 10 times at the most. Apparently there is only a 90 day warranty on batteries from Canon. For [$], I'd expect more.

    This battery is a must for the Canon camera. Less expensive models will not give the service expected of the camera

      They may be more expensive but the quality of OEM batteries is well worth it. I bought an aftermarket laptop battery and at less than a year old it only lasts about 50% of the time it used to.

          Comments about Canon NB-7L Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1050mAh):

          Few years back I bought a generic (non Canon) battery for my Canon G7. During a trip to Florida, the power circuit board in the camera got damaged by over heating. After repairs, I used the generic battery again and noticed immediately that the camera is getting hot. I removed the generic battery and installed the original genuine Canon battery and everything was fine. I'm still using the G7 today with Canon batteries. I will never buy another generic battery for any of my digital cameras.

                  I bought this battery to back up my battery that came with the camera. No problems so far so I guess it's worth a "5"

                    Battery lasts very long if you´re taking pictures. It also recharges very quickly. But if you´re willing to shoot videos using the display, I recommend you get an extra battery.

                              Expensive, but since I shoot a lot of images, I need extra batteries that I can depend on. So far I am happy with it.

                                As a photo enthusiast, it is very important to me to always have a spare battery.

                                Works well, but it's Expensive.

                                  Experience has taught me that an extra battery is one of the best options to consider when buying a new camera. I've also found that manufacturers' (canon) batteries are more durable than other 'non manufacturer' brands.

                                    The service is very fast. The item purchased was shipped the next day and received within 3 days. In Canada this item sells for [$] plus shipping. At B&H I paid half of it.

                                    Used in my Canon G10 camera and charged with the external charger. I've got two of these batteries, one main and one used as a spare. After storing the spare for six months fully charged, it will not charge AT ALL and battery is completely dead. It has probably been charged 10 times at the most. Apparently there is only a 90 day warranty on batteries from Canon. For [$], I'd expect more.
