With two of these in my T2i's battery grip, I am confident that I'll be shooting for a long time. With only one (in the body), I was amazed at the life, even when the camera had sat for a few weeks. As an owner of several Canon products, I have to say that the power consumption characteristics are very good, and I believe that using Canon brand batteries is probably the best way to maximize my cameras' capabilities.

I have three (3) LP-E8 batteries that I purchased to use with my T5i. Each battery has been charged using Canon's LC-E8E charger, and the charger has indicated each battery was fully charged. However, when I put a battery in the camera it registers only 2/3 charged. That 2/3s charge gave me enough juice to shoot 43 stills this morning, but not enough to transfer those files to my computer. I purchased extra Canon batteries for the T5i, even though I had used non-Canon batteries in my T2i, and 70D, and never had any problems with those batteries, or my cameras' performance. I've never had a lithium battery that wouldn't fully charge, and am especially disappointed because I thought Canon made a battery that was at least as good, if not better than a 3rd party like Watson, or Pearstone. Before I buy more batteries I'll try a 3rd party charger to see if it's able to pack the LP-E8s better than the Canon charger.

              The product arrived quickly and was exactly what I wanted. I'm skeptical about ordering generic brand batteries for my Cannon Rebel T3i, which is why I order this battery. It is the exact battery I received with my camera, so this was a great backup to add to my camera bag.

                    Works very well, the way it's supposed to. I purchased this as a second battery for a battery grip. I'm glad I did. I would recommend this product. I'm glad I chose Canon instead of another brand.
