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.

A battery you can trust

By DSLRVideoJoe

Comments about Canon LP-E8 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 1120mAh):

Got this to have a spare battery for my T4i. Wanted to stick with Canon so I know that this 2nd battery will last as long as the original. There are others but I like the piece of mind with the Canon brand.

Lesson learned - always buy OEM or equivalent...

By Pete Mueller

from Orcutt, CA

Comments about Canon LP-E8 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 1120mAh):

OEM camera batteries (or an approved equivalent from a reputable dealer) aren't cheap. Like a lot of you (I assume...), I've bought my share of "affordable" batteries from other sources (i.e. on-line auction site) at prices almost too good to be true. The truth is I should have used that money on quality non-knockoff product, or a bottle of wine. The knockoffs are complete counterfeits with identical packaging, product labeling... and almost no way of knowing they're fakes until it comes to actual battery life / number of shots.
Here's where the rubber hits the road (numbers not actual data, just for illustrative purposes); if let's say with the $20 counterfeit I was getting 40 shots before failure, with the OEM I am getting 280. 7 times the difference. However, pricewise the OEM was only 2.5 times more expensive. Considering the inconvenience, number of batteries necessary needed to have on hand, risk of missing a shot, and just the frustration of "Darn! Battery dead again?!!" (substitute darn with a much more forceful word) I've learned my lesson. Always, always by the quality battery. This one counts...

I had a shoot at The Premiere Orlando Beauty Show this past weekend and only had one battery. With one week to spare and freaking out I stumbled upon BH Photo Video and purchased this gem. It worked perfectly and got me through an eight hour work day. I will definitely purchase more.

    Comments about Canon LP-E8 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 1120mAh):

    I bought this because my company lost mine and offered to replace it. Yes there are other batteries you can get, some better than others, but with the OEM you know you're getting the real deal that lasts a good long time.

      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 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.
