Not As Good As Factory
on May 6, 2013
I bought this extra battery for my Canon 520 because it seemed to have the best reviews for a battery cheaper than the 80 bucks that Canon wanted. After using the Wasabi for 6 months or so, I'm not sure I'd make the same decision. It seems like all I do these days is switch out batteries. The Canon battery has been charged maybe 90 times and yet it's only holding a charge for an hour (and that's not using the camera for the entire hour). The Wasabi has never seemed to hold a charge as long. I have my camera settings to conserve as much power as possible, except that I do leave it on auto-focus --which I know is an energy drain. But when I first got the camera, it seems like it was a month before I had to charge it. Now, it's weekly or even more frequently (and at the same rate of picture taking).
