This review is from: Insten® 2 PACK LP-E5 REPLACEMENT BATTERY PACK Compatible with CANON CAMERA EOS Digital Rebel Xsi / Xs (Camera)
It may still be too soon to tell, but I had charged up both generic 1600mAh batteries in anticipation of a local Renaissance Festival. I put the generic battery in my camera and used it for an unnumbered amount of photos. However, while at the Renaissance Festival, I had taken a total of 864 photos outside in the sunlight, some with flash, but most with the sports action shots at 3 frames per second. It was after going to the Renaissance Faire and taking some photos of a horse barrel race during sports mode that I noticed the camera not going as fast and hanging up some. It was then that I noticed the battery was on its last bar. It was not completely drained, so as a benchmark, with most outdoor photos with some flash and quite a few sports action shots, the 1600 mAh generic battery on one charge can handle around 870-890 shots. Of course, situations will vary with how much flash is used and other settings on the camera.

Update September 1, 2013:
I still have the two generic batteries and am thinking about placing an order for two more. Hopefully they are the same quality battery that I bought over a year ago. Batteries are still going strong, and I've had photos easily up into the tens of thousands. I just need to order more because my wife obtained the exact same camera and after a long day of shooting, we were both on our second battery out of a total of four (Two original batteries and two of these generic ones). Since we are making a photography business, we need a couple extra batteries on stand by. Other than that, the generic batteries still have long life.
