I use these batteries in a Canon Powershot SX30IS. I have always been afraid to use non manufacturer recommended parts. These are not a problem or dangerous to the camera. They allow a few photos less than the Canon battery but when you buy several you actually get more for less.After a thirty minute bike ride, a forty-five minute hilly hike, and half a day of shooting on a riverside, I am not going home for another battery. I bought five.

Aftermarket, though not always tested nor best quality, does tread lightly on the wallet. This battery is good, not great, but it does the job. Fits and looks OE, however, the storage capacity is 1/2 that of the Cannon batteries. How that translates to actual battery life, I cannot say. But for a fraction of the price, I don't mind carrying an extra few of these in the bag on a shoot or travel trip. If youre REALLY strapped for storage space and need more reliable and longer power, just pickup the OE batts and don't stress.

        Economical and reliable source of power. Good substitute for Canon batteries. Never had a problem with these. Last a long time between charges. Very well made - could have been manufactured in the same factory as the OEM version.

                Bought this as a spare battery for my canon G12. Only used it once so far, so can't comment on it's abilities after multiple recharges. Seems to have a bit less capity than the Canon OEM battery, but I knew that when I bought it by the rating. Still a good deal since it is less than half the price of the OEM battery.

                        I use this battery in my Canon G10 camera along with the Canon battery that came with the camera. I found no difference in performance, but a BIG difference in price when I went to buy more. I plan a safari to South Africa and was told to bring extra charged batteries. I bought 4 more Pearstone batteries.

                            Back up for Canon battery pack, which has a disconcerting tendency to be discharged when I need it, although it will run the camera a long time.
                            Big plus for the Pearstone is price. I charged it with the Pearstone auto/110 charger, and used it to clear pix from the camera. It will get heavy use this weekend...
                            No negatives yet...

                                Comments about Pearstone NB-7L Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 875mAh):

                                I used this battery for a backup battery while on vacation. The battery chagres and works great for the price.

                                  Happy with this purchase. Good alternative to Canon as a backup.
