Capacity aside, the packs are fine. They fit in my T2i and Canon charger just fine. The T2i powers up just fine with them in and seems to work on a full charge. This is why they get 2 stars instead of just 1.
I could see there being issues with video. Video sucks more juice from the battery, and when you suck juice you get an instant voltage drop related to the capacity of the battery. On a lower capacity pack like this one the voltage will drop pretty quickly down below what the camera sees as a 'dead battery' while in video mode. You might get a few minutes of video on a full charge, but at half charge or so it will probably stop working, though it will probably take more stills.
These aren't really worth returning, so I'll keep them around as spares. They'll work for some emergency picture taking if both my 'real' batteries fail.
My advice is to spend a little more and try to find a 'real' pack, unless you just need a backup for a few shots. I'm probably going to get another Canon branded one now, don't know if I'd roll the dice on another knockoff.
EDIT after some time: These are great. First pair of these (in a batter grip) just died and needed charging. Hundreds of photos taken in that time and almost an hour of experimental videos. Best value Ive ever had in camera batteries.
I've ordered four batteries and the Canon charger will not recognize three. The charging light will not go on at all. The fourth battery when moved around in the charger activates the charging light intermittently.
I've contacted the seller and I'll give you a followup on how this was resolved.
Might be time to start buying real Canon batteries!
June 22nd 2011 Update below:
First and foremost I would like to thank New Harbor the company that WAS selling these batteries at the time of my purchase. They were very friendly and accommodating and gave me a refund on the batteries that did not work and paid for the return shipping. Looks like another company is selling the batteries at this time.
I returned the first set of four batteries and New Harbor sent me four more. Out of the new batch two batteries charged and worked as expected and two were not recognized by the Canon battery charger. So out of a total of eight batteries only two worked. Not the best odds. Also I haven't really used the batteries for any amount of extended time, so I don't know how well they will perform in terms of the amount shutter clicks and video shooting length per battery.
I'll see how these batteries perform but if I had to do it again I'd try: Maximal Power Li-ion Battery to Replace Canon LP-E8
Good luck everyone... hope this helps your battery decision making!
