Hopefully there are third party batteries on ebay that come with the chip and canon batteries are dropping the price. Right now, i would skip this opteka ones.
So far they seem to be working just like the Canon batteries with no communication functions crippled. I'll order a couple more soon.
Note: The battery is listed for a T2i, and based on the reviews it probably works well for that model. Thought I will leave my comment on Amazon for anyone looking for a LP-E8 spare battery for their T3i.
I have seen the battery meter fall below 1/2 charge one time in 6 months. That was after a ton of use where I had PLENTY of time to charge them. I use a $40 battery grip on my Canon T2i / 550D.
This is at least my third order of batteries from Opteka. I bought extra so I would never have to worry about running out of juice. Not one bad battery so far. If I ever have a complaint, this review will be the first to change. At $17 a battery, there's not much to complain about, though.
Both of my canon batteries are used for back-up. That basically means that they've never been used except for the week I first get a camera. I am in no way saying the canon batteries are bad - they are great.
The Optekas seems to run out of juice quickly once the battery gets low. That's when you grab another one (or two for gripped), and keep shooting. To be honest, I haven't really compared that to canon batteries for reasons listed above. Canon batteries may not exhibit the same behavior because of additional hardware.
5/5 for a good product at an outstanding price. I'm pleased with the Optekas.
Buy the "Maximal Power DB CAN LP-E8 Replacement Li-Ion Battery for Canon LP-E8" (do a search on amazon, it costs about 15$). This is a perfect fit as the OEM.

It holds juice for a good while I'm pleased. It's my second battery and with the two I can shoot a full day and not worryPublished 3 months ago by Tyler Price
Works really great as a backup. Just know that it is a bit tricky to get it in the Canon charger, but once you figure it out, you'll get a lot of life out of it!Published 3 months ago by Crowind
I've been alternating between the Canon LP-E8 that came with my T3i and this battery since I got this one in March 2013. Read morePublished 4 months ago by P Maris
