    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Stated 3000mAh - may be it is 2900, I do not know. But until now my tests with compact camera show extremely good performance and seems they are 3000mAh.
    Tests were run with following parameters:
    Internal flash was set to highest power
    Backscreen lit all the time
    Antishake was enabled
    Full zoom in - zoom out for 30-40% of all shots.
    After each shot was taken picture review for about 2 seconds and long time reviews for 20% of all shots during 1-2 minutes each. After full charge batteries stay in camera off for 1 day. Next day shooting sessions started. 373 shots were taken overall for 3 days. All shot were taken with full power internal flashlight on. Flash recharge circle at fresh batteries - 10sec., after 350 shots - 12 sec. which is slightly longer and ablosulety acceptable concerning flash settings. Batteries did not get hot (even charging) at any time which may show high current discharge. They still run with no low power sign in the camera.

    Cons:

    none at all

    OtherThoughts:

    When battery packs went out for my old good compact camera Canon PowerShot A710IS I decided to test it with more powerful batteries then I used to use. There were pairs of GP 2500mAh, Energizer 2700mAh, Canon 2800mAh. But well, with time they lost their capacity drastically, by the way I never able to use my camera with those packs intensively have to recharge every day.
    So I decided to test 3000mAh and choose not cheapest and not expensive, something in between. Really I did not put my hopes alot on those batteries keeping in mind that those could be 2800mAh max or even worse. Impressivly they are at the top of my list now, except recharge circles quantity tests, which I cannot do yet (until they loose their capacity at least on 30%) for such short period of usage time.

    Bottomline:

    Really strongly recommended. I plan to use some packs for my flashlight Canon 580 (4 per pack) along with some chinese 2900mAh too I am using now and completely satisfied with. So overall 3 days intensive usage of compact camera and still running - very good performance. Get 1 in camera and another spare pack I can rely on them playing with my compact camera full week now. That I was never even think about before, holding 3-4 packs of my previous 2500-2800mAh batteries in my pocket.
