I can't speak to longevity as I've only been using it a little over a month. If it croaks prematurely I'll amend my review. However, I feel confident enough about the Opteka I plan to buy a couple more as my wife wants one for her SL1 too.
4 stars, because It doesn't come with the contacts protector, which OEM does, and it is pretty important to have it while carrying the batteries in the bag with several other items; otherwise would give it 5 stars
With the original Canon battery, it will read full for a while, then half for a while, then low for a while, and then it will start giving me a blinking red warning, but I can still get a good number of shots before I have to charge it. With the Opteka, it will be reading just fine, then all of a sudden, it's blinking red, and I have maybe one shot, then the camera tells me to change the battery pack and turns off. Again, I think the Opteka lasts just as long - it simply doesn't give me the same amount of warning as the Canon battery does. For the substantial price difference, I can live with that.
I'm not a serious photographer, but I have two little kids, and I keep the camera out at all times so I can snap a picture whenever I want, and it's super frustrating if you go to take a picture/video and find out the battery is dead, so I really like to keep a spare battery fully charged that I can just swap out. The Opteka fully handles this need.
This battery, however, directly replaces that battery. Seriously, buy two or three of these, depending on how much you shoot- you won't even need the canon battery anymore. It literally makes the camera useable as it should be, and I applaud third parties for correcting canons flaws.
I bought two, they charge in no time in the canon charger, and ill get two more just for backup and never have to worry about it again.
Tsk tsk canon.
All were fully charged using the Canon charger, all were new and showed full power in the EOS-M/M2 and were used in the same environments (with regular lenses, with IS lenses and with the same LCD screen settings (Screen off after 15 seconds, camera off after 5 minutes, AF Illumination light off, Touch focus off and On-Shot auto-focus on). Using several of each battery, all lasted roughly the same amount of time (~200-250 pictures).
Seeing that the Opteka is rated at 2,000 mAH and the Canon is rated at 875mAH (I believe the Wasabi is 1100), I unfortunately did not notice any difference. The change may be apparent on other cameras that use the battery (the M/M2 are a mirrorless which use the LCD screen as a viewfinder), but I didn't notice that.
With that said.. I can get 9 of these for the price of a Canon one, and they worked just as well.
