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.

    Great as always. Works just fine in my T5i. It's always good to have 2-3 extra batteries when shooting video projects. I always use canon brand.

          I always prefer to have two - three charged batteries on hand and easily accessible for long photo shoots. Love having my extra batteries to support my photo play dates.

                  I bought a used canon t5i so I decided to get a new battery for it as well. So far the battery life has been better than expected. The great battery and I'd recommend having second battery for those long trips without power.

                      its the same as the one my camera came with so and I am putting it in a battery grip with another battery. I didn't want to have 2 different brands of batteries working together just in case their relationship went acidic and they ruin their home my camera

                        I purchased a couple of third party batteries for have this cost. The only trouble is they totally died in two years while my original Canon battery did not. A pro photographer friend said he has had his original Canon battery for 15 years and it is still going strong. Now I have two Canon batteries for my T3i so I should be good for a very long time.
