The one I got was real and I've been happy with it. Looks like the same one that came with the camera. Hope this helps...

When I bought this battery I received an extremely convincing counterfeit complete with hologram seals etc.... However when I used them the battery would work well for while and then suddenly die. I would recommend buying from an authorized reseller like BandHphotoVideo. The price was comparable and you are guaranteed a genuine product.

Hi Rick
I bought this battery for my camera and I can give testimony that is original and working properly. A few days ago I lost one of the two I have and will go back to buy this battery. I recommend it.

As far as I know its real. Holds a charge as long as the one I got with the camera and looks the same. I am satisfied with it.

Mine was oem. It is still fine and no problems. It was just not packaged. Hope this helps.

They are either of the real thing or somebody went through a lot of trouble to make the exact same packaging and to make them function the same. By all appearances and all functionality these look to be the real thing. I was hesitant as well because those older posts worried me. But now after having made this purchase I'm not worried anymore.

The one I ordered looks exactly like the original battery that came with the camera. No problems at all.

It was in the original package from Canon. It works super.

I've ordered them twice, and both times they were the same exact battery that came with my camera.
