Cheap and effective
on October 31, 2013
Got these batteries for my Canon Rebel T3 after I ran out at a critical juncture. These batteries claim over double the capacity of the original battery, and they do in fact serve well. I have not done an objective assessment of photos per charge, but they have performed at least as well as the original. I have charged these batteries in the Canon charger, and the canon battery in this charger, and all combinations worked, which is convenient.
I did find a little more resistance installing these batteries in the camera. I think this may be caused by the paper label; if you were planning to stick on a label and make notes on the battery, it might just make it too thick to remove easily.
Interestingly, after I bought this, I saw many ads from Canon warning me about the risks of counterfeit batteries. They may be right, counterfeit batteries may be problematic; however these batteries do not claim to be genuine Canon batteries so they are aftermarket batteries, not counterfeit. And as the biggest defective lithium battery scandal involved a well-known Japanese electronics company (S**y), a big name doesn't make me feel any safer!
