Pros:
1. It is cheap. Much cheaper than the Canon battery. Cheaper than anything else I have found.
2. It works. You just charge it with your Canon charger and stick it into your camera.
3. It lasts quite a while - at least comparable to my Canon battery.
4. It looks exactly like my Canon battery just with different things printed on it.
5. It comes with a plastic cover which is handy for storage.
Cons:
1. It isn't Canon, so if it leaks or blows up in your camera, it may void the warranty.
Other:
My Canon battery which came with the camera says 1080mAh.
The description for this DX battery says it is rated at 1080mAh.
The battery itself has printed on it
: 1500mAh.
I'm not sure what the actual capacity of this battery is, but it is at least comparable to my Canon one.
Bottomline:
Cheap. Works. Hasn't blown up or leaked yet.
