Good deal for a lot more life
on November 5, 2012
The item was shipped quickly, and most importantly for me, in time for our trip to San Diego for a wedding. The battery is almost 3 times that of the OEM battery, although it does come with a couple drawbacks. The battery doesn't fit quite as snugly as the OEM battery, and the camera can't communicate with it, so you have no idea how much life is left.
I finally got around to running a test for this review and here it goes. We have a Canon VIXIA HF R300 and I fully charged this battery as well as the OEM version. With the screen brightness all the way up, in MXP mode (HQ 24 mbps) and both tests recording out the window, the OEM battery lasted EXACTLY 35:00 minutes (strange that it's so exact) and this battery lasted 1:35:23.
I'm about to buy another one now that I see the price is $10 lower than when I first bought it.
