    Watson LP-E12 reviews

    LP-E12 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 800mAh) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 61.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great value 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good battery with one flaw. I had to replace an identical Watson battery due to a problem that I have also seen mentioned in other reviews. My previous battery will no longer fit in the camera. It is about 3 years old and it could be forced to fit in the camera, but then I doubt I could get it out. Camera is a Canon SL1. I have read in another review that the battery expands in the middle after a period of time, and that appears to be what has happened to my previous battery. However, again, it is about 3 years old and has given perfect service otherwise. For the cost savings compared to a Canon battery, I feel the Watson is still a good cost effective alternative. Perhaps not all Watson batteries will have the "growing" problem over time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings Watson batteries look cheap on the exterior (compared with Canon batteries), do not slide so easily into the battery compartment of my EOS M camera but they work fine otherwise. Third party batteries are cheap for a reason: the quality control is not great and one of the two batteries I ordered arrived completely discharged (the battery must arrive 5060% charged - one or two bars). After charging, this battery didn't last more than few shots - the capacity of the battery was very low. The other battery seems to be as good as the original and it doesn't show signs of fatigue yet.B&H was great in replacing the bad battery - excellent customer support!In conclusion, assuming the bad battery was just an unfortunate incident, Watson LP-E12 replacement seems to be a decent choice for a Canon EOS M camera (I recommend 34 batteries especially when traveling).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spare Battery for EOS M 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.
    Date published: 2014-11-02
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works OK for a while... These batteries are fine for about the first year, but then begin to bulge in the middle, and become jammed in the camera. We have several of these, and all seem to have this weakness after continued use. I've been able to remove them with small pliers, but out on a job it could cause a problem. As they are inexpensive, I'd say go ahead and buy them, just be ready to discard them if you notice this problem

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent batteries, very good deal 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.
    Date published: 2014-01-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well-Good Price 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.
    Date published: 2013-12-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit right I bought this battery because I needed more batteries for my camera, for obvious reasons. The great part about it is that it's extremely cheap, but it has a few downsides. It fits VERY snug, which causes two issues: 1. It's hard to put in. 2. It's hard to take out. I have to take out my sd card and use my finger to kinda pull it out. Once you get the hang of it it's very easy to do, so it doesn't matter much. I will be trying the energizer lp-e12 batteries because they are the same price, and I want to know if I can get the better quality out of them. So should you buy this? If you don't have big fingers and you don't want to spend $60 on the canon battery, definitely. But this is written by a 14 year old, so don't buy this unless you actually have small fingers. Or an assistant with small fingers.
