Works, but doesn't hold charge long
on April 26, 2014
So I bought this battery 4 months ago as a backup for my Canon 70D. I charged it fully, used it until it needed charging again, and then fully recharged it. I then didn't need it for a few weeks, and it sat in my bag. When I pulled it out (on a vacation), it had lost all of it's charge and was completely dead. frustrating. When I returned home, I fully recharged it again, and immediately put it into my camera. It worked fine, but only lasted maybe a third the time of a Canon brand battery. Once depleted, I did the charge cycle again, and got the same results. Thus, this battery works fine in a Canon 70D, but be aware that it doesn't last as long under use, and it doesn't hold a charge very long when not in use. I would recommend charging it just before your trip or photo shoot, and maybe bring your charger too.
