    I get about 200 images per charged battery on my EOS M, so a spare battery or two is a must. This one charges in same amount of time as the EOM battery and gets as many shots. It also holds the charge in the bag so I am assured a have a back up battery when on a day trip.

    no same quality, good price

    I bougth this as a backup battery, and it is ok. for that. In my experience, alternative batteries operates for less time than original ones. The physical quality is not fair.

          Comments about Watson LP-E12 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 800mAh):

          Charges just fine in the Canon charger. Seems to last about as long as the Canon battery.

          It's just ever so slightly larger than the stock battery, making it difficult to get it out of the battery compartment.

          Overall a good buy If your looking to save some money.

                So far the battery although not a scientific study seems to be as good as the oem but only time will tell.

                          I give these only 3 stars because I don't know how long they will last. I've only used them for about 2-months. Other 3rd party batteries have been less than durable, lasting only a few months. I bought these because they have a 1-year warranty. They fit snug and have worked well so far.

                              A generic battery for the Canon EOS M...battery holds charge and works as a great back up battery. Price was also very favorable as well...

                                I purchased this lower cost battery for my Canon SL1 (100D). I wanted a second battery to rotate for use with my camera without having to spend too much.

                                            Using this in my Canon EOS M as a backup - and it powers the camera! woohoo! I don't have much other info to tell you. The OEM Canon charger charges it fine. That's something... It's cheaper... that's something!

                                            Low Cost Alternative to Canon Battery. It charges fine with the Canon charger and the life is at least as good as the Canon battery.

                                            These are replacement batteries for the Canon SL1 and Canon M cameras. Excellent batteries for the money, half the price of the original Canon batteries and excellent built quality. I have not found any negatives issues with these Watson batteries.

                                                  So far this battery has worked well in my canon eos-m, lasts as long as the canon equivalent. Charges well in the canon charger. I have no complaints and the price was right.
