Seriously, it's a battery. So far, it's worked as it should. I bought this one as a backup, and as my second battery when I eventually buy a battery grip. It charges and holds a charge. I charged it just before my family's recent weekend at Disney World and used the same battery all weekend (my original battery was charged and waiting in my camera bag). I shot about 300 pictures over the weekend. Of those, 7 were shot in JPEG, the rest were shot in RAW. After the weekend, my camera was still showing a full charge. Since we returned from our weekend vacation, I have shot another 180 pictures, all in RAW, all on the same battery, and it's still showing a full charge. So, I've got no complaints.

I had to buy this one because the original life ended because I leave the battery in camera and did not use it a few months.

Don´t leale your battery in camera when not in use for long time if you dont want to spend more than necessary.

This is a standard Canon rechargeable battery pack. I have not had any difficulty with it. Delivery was very quick which was great since I needed to replace one that was about 6 years old and not holding a charge.

Package arrived earlier than stated. Have used it once. It is performing as expected. It is a Canon OE branded replacement so expect it to work as advertised, along with its usual warranties

        I am on my third LP-E5 Rechargeable Battery. One charge lasts a long time for me and I use my camera every day. The battery seems to last forever! The only drawback is that they don't last forever!

          Comments about Canon LP-E5 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1080mAh):

          Having read reviews on non-OEM batteries for my Canon, I decided I needed an original OEM battery. In my searches, I always go to B&H having bought numerous equipment over the years. Not only was I reassured of an OEM battery, I noted that the price was the best and shipping was free! The battery charged right up and performed for hours. I will continue to shop B&H Photo.

                  These batteries are great!! I would never use anything elase. They are long lasting. I thought I had a battery problem but as it turned out, it wasn't the battery at all so I returned it with no problem. The problem was that my camera card was nearly filled and this was causing the camera to show that I could only take a few dozen more photos. I would highly recommend this battery.

                    My LP-E5 rechargeable battery pack mysteriously disappeared. While I could have purchased a generic battery pack more cheaply, I've come to rely on the durability and reliability of the Canon one.

                        I have 2 batteries, one a Canon original that came with the camera I purchased and 2nd off-brand I purchased as a backup. After 4 years the Canon battery is still going strong. The off-brand swelled so now it doesn't fit in the camera's battery compartment. I just replaced it with a Canon battery. Spent a little more but know it will out last all the other brands.
