I own canon professional SLR's so I know from past experience Canon's policies about third party products that work with their stuff; they fight it tooth and nail and try to keep a monopoly on everything. My SLR's use the venerable 512 battery packs, fortunately somebody was able to reverse engineer those and sell them reasonably instead of the 80 plus dollars Canon wants for an original pack. Don't get me wrong, Canon makes good stuff they just have a really inflated view of what folks are able to pay for things if you ask me. I love my FS100 it's a great camcorder, well worth what I paid for it but the battery packages are outrageously priced for it. Right after we bought the camcorder bestbuy started offering an outfit that included a second battery for what amounts to a bargain...unfortunately I missed out on that. You can find japanese versions of these batteries on ebay but they DO NOT HAVE THE ELECTRONICS in the pack so the camera cannot detect charge and they will not charge on the camera...so far only canon has this battery with all the electronics in it for sale. I bought a third party charger, one of the new batteries I bought (I got two) will not charge on that unit but it does on the camera. Most of us never shoot more than two hours of video anyway(which is battery life in middle quality mode, maybe be shorter in highest quality mode). I feel these batteries are way overpriced and canon needs to stop being quite so stuffy about licensing tech specs so others can sell stuff too...but they do work as advertised and do last as long as they are supposed to in everyday use.

I recently purchased a Canon FS 200 which came with a Canon BP-808 battery. At the time of purchase, I also bought two after-market spare batteries (labled "CTA Canon DB-BP808) with charger and two 16 GB flash cards. The Canon battery communicates with the camera so you always know how much recording time you have left. That's a useful feature but not an absolutely necessary one. The real problem with the aftermarket batteries is that, every time I turn the camera on, I get a pop-up message telling me that the camera cannot communicate with the battery and asking if I want to use the battery that is in the camera. That means, every time I turn on the camera, I have to push the toggle right (to choose "yes") and depress the toggle switch to select "yes" - two extra steps to complicate what should be a simple start up. Especially cumbersome when wearing gloves. I recommend the real Canon batteries.

This is the original Canon replacement ION Battery (BP-808). The price was approximately 37% less than Canon's Suggested retail price. It will display all the information the original battery does, and it will charge in the Camcorder.

This product was received and operated as expected. It is a compliment for the Canon FS11. The camcorder will operate approximately 90 minutes on a full charge. Having a spare is almost manditory. I have been able to continue recording while one battery charges.

I purchased a Canon BP-808 battery as a backup battery for our new Canon VIXIA HF M41 Camcorder after Christmas 2011. We only use it for family events and seldom require a second battery. I tested the battery this last week and it was depleted. I tried charging it and it would flash maybe four times and then stop. It wouldn't charge. The battery was only 9 months old and rarely used. I called Canon USA technical support and learned that Canon does not offer any warranties for their batteries. None. If I had purchased the battery the week before, it would still not be covered. Amazon offers a 30 day warranty of items. To Amazon's credit, they offered me a $10 promotional credit but Canon did nothing. The support agent was polite but he couldn't do anything about it. I am very disappointed in Canon and this information. We had always considered it better to purchase Canon batteries since we felt that it was a better quality. However, now that perception has changed and we will be more open to purchase other products than Canon.

I purchased this battery almost 3 months ago to use as a spare. I attempted to charge it last night in preparation for a trip I'm taking tomorrow. The battery doesn't charge. Period. I guess that's why this battery is half the price of an "official" Canon battery. I got what I paid for. The seller -- not Amazon -- says that batteries aren't covered by their return policy. I submitted a claim anyway; perhaps Amazon will come to my rescue.

What I wanted, good price, swift delivery. Needed an additional battery for my camera. Works great.
Worst battery ever. Purchased an Canon OEM battery BP-808 in May 2015, used it once or twice, now it doesn't charge at all.Read more
