    Watson BP-970 reviews

    BP-970 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 7800mAh) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Long life but lacks smart chip This battery outlasts the Canon version it proports to replace but it lacks the smartchip and contacts necessarty for the camera to calculate how much time remains. There are cheaper batteries (Wasabi) that do have the chip and are built better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Battery When looking for a spare battery for a Canon HD camera, this is a great way to go. It provides approximately 300 minutes of battery life when fully charged -although one of the only downsides being that because it is an off-brand battery, it doesn't display the actual minutes remaining on the camera's display. A little on the heavy side, but there's really no getting around that. Affordable, easy to use (obviously) and a well made battery. No issues so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heavy-duty Battery I shoot weddings and other family-oriented events and need hours of battery power. I also move often so I don't want to be bogged down with electric cables. I had misgivings before buying the BP-970 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack because this was not a factory-preferred product. I am thrilled at the length of battery life of the BP-970 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack. It recharges quickly and lasts for hours with my GL2

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Nuclear Power Plant I use it for Conference and Doco. Pros - Pack a punch - Long lasting (after 3 hours conference, the battery still at >70%) - Not that big compare to Canon Battery Cons - My Canon Camera WILL NOT DISPLAY HOW MANY MINUTES I HAVE LEFT. Only the battery bar. But that's good enough for me. If you also buy Pearstone Duo Battery charger, it will show exactly how much power this battery has left.
    Date published: 2011-09-02
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheaper price reflects dependability This replacement part for Canon's BL-970 battery pack made by Pearstone (approx. $) is about $50 dollars less expensive than the Canon-made battery pack of the same size (About $149) - and it lasts about the same amount of time as the small Canon battery pack (BL-950 which sells for around $99). While otherwise entirely dependable, you get the same amount of bang for your buck, while hoping that you were getting a longer life battery. Nothing gained; nothing lost - except a little faith in the Pearstone product line.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BP-970 all pros no cons I used the BP-970 on a six hour shoot with no problems.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok... Works will with canon GL2. Dont drop the batteries, plastic construction is very flimsy. Canon OEM batteries are better quality. The best part is thhe price point.
    Date published: 2011-03-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BATTERY! Really impressed with the battery life! Used with my XHA1 cameras for some two plus hours and still had a nearly a full charge. Recharge wasn't bad at all.
