5.0 out of 5 stars Works for Canon PowerShot SX40 HS, December 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Power2000 1200Mah Lithium Battery Replacement For Canon NB-10L Battery (For Canon G15, G16, SX40 HS, SX50 HS, and SX60 HS Digital Cameras) (Electronics)
I bought this battery as a backup battery for the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS camera and it fits the camera and charger just like the original. I've been known to shoot up to 2000 pictures a day, so a backup battery was a necessity. I would prefer AA batteries for ease of use while traveling, but that's more an issue with the camera design. At just $13 on sale, this was a cheap alternative to Canon's proprietary battery. It says the cell is made in Japan, and the rating on it (1200mAh) is higher than on the Canon battery that came with the camera (920mAh). I've recharged it twice so far and it takes less than 2 hours to charge, which is great. I was able to get 1000 pictures on one charge (including a few short test movies), which is about comparable to what I got out of the Canon battery on its first charge. Time will tell how it will hold up under repeated use, but so far it seems to work fine.

Update: After recharging a few times, the battery life seems to be more around 600 pictures. I got 1000 only out of the very first charge. This is consistent with the original Canon battery, which behaved exactly the same. So far I cannot see any difference in performance between the two batteries and they last for the same number of pictures. I was hoping that this one would last longer than the Canon battery due to its higher rating, but that does not appear to be the case.

Just wondering if this battery can be charged on OEM charger come with the camera?
Will the camera recognize this battery as an OEM battery and display correct battery information?

Yes, it fits the charger that came with the camera and will recharge and display just like the Canon battery.
