These batteries are packaged well and shipped very fast.
It took about 2 hours to get to a full charge out of the box. If you are looking for T2i batteries, look no further!
I have had these batteries for a few months and still feel the same way as mentioned above. I have been using the batteries without the grip (1 battery at a time) and seems to get about 20-30% more shots than the stock Canon battery. Recharge time is about 2-3 hours from dead. Spend your savings on lenses, not "Canon" branded batteries.
First off, both batteries were tested on a Canon T3i, at 1920x1080 24fps, with a Sandisk Ultra 16GB class 10 and a Transcend 16GB class 10 as the SD cards of choice. Also, both batteries were tested with continuous recording, 'til each battery died.
The Canon battery lasted approximately 90 minutes, while the Photive battery lasted approximately 86 minutes. So, it holds up within just a few minutes against a brand name battery, which is amazing for the price.
However, there is a catch. The battery meter does NOT show the battery life. It will go from full to dead with absolutely no indication. Not even the halfway mark. As it states in the title, keep a watch/timer handy to keep track of your battery life.
Other than the guessing game you may play with its life, it's well worth the price tag given how long it lasts. And the fact that you can shoot 2 full 16GB cards worth of video without changing batteries is big plus.
I would recommend going with the STK battery, as it lasts about a minute longer, and costs $2 less. And neither of these batteries report to the battery meter.
Next I bought two of these Photive batteries for the price of one genuine Canon battery. Some reviewers have stated that they do not get any warning before the battery runs out. My Canon Rebel T4i *does* give me the flashing "low battery" warning icon, so I don't notice any difference in usage between the OEM battery and these.
The Photive batteries are charged using the Canon charger for the LP-E8. If you order these, inspect the contacts very carefully. I ordered two Photive batteries. They both fit into the charger just fine, but one did not want to go all the way into the camera! I looked closely, and the case of the battery was constructed so poorly that the plastic flared out, making it too wide to fit into the recess that accepts the battery contacts. I was able to fix this problem myself, by using a sharp knife to press the extra glob of grey case plastic to fit behind the black plastic that surrounds the contact points. So I am spared having to send this back for a replacement. Whew!
(See my photos for better understanding.)
If you order these batteries, please inspect them very carefully and be sure to use them before disposing of any packaging and shipping materials, should it become necessary to send it/them back. Other than that hiccup, they seem to work just fine for me. A cheaper alternative to the OEM battery from Canon.
I film weddings for a living, so anyone who works this profession will tell you that you need to be ready at the drop of a hat, and this means fully charged with good, long-lasting batteries. I know there are some reviews on there that discuss the technical side with numbers, I'm going to discuss what happened on my first wedding day shoot with these batteries:
Before I bought these, I was using two original Canon LP-E8s and a set of 6 "high capacity" AA batteries as back ups (which were completely useless, giving me about 20-25 minutes of power). When I first got the Photive LP-E8s in the mail, I threw them in my T3i and fully discharged them so I could recharge them fully with no memory complications. I was thinking, "hey, there were $14 for two batteries, if they last an hour, that's all ready twice as long as the 6-AA 'high capacity' batteries I had used at my last gig." I started the day with the Photives and shot all the way through preparation with the bride. I was impressed when I got to the church and the batteries were still kicking... I was flabbergasted when they finally died right as dancing started at the reception, giving me roughly 7 hours of use (turning it off an on, I have multiple cameras for different shot designs).
I ended up using the Canon batteries for about 2-3 hours. The Photives have become my Day-Starter and main batteries while my Canon's are now my back ups. I have bought two more sets just for safety. If I have a very long shoot, I want to be prepared. Thank you, Photive, you may be a knock off brand, but you saved my butt a few times!
