Build quality still exceeds price – Canon LP-E5 Compatible 7.4V 1080mAh Replacement Li-Ion Battery for Canon EOS-450D/KISSX2/1000D Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Cheap, capacity seems to match information given, fits eventually on 450D (see cons)
Cons:
Straight out-of-box the connector is a bit tight on my unit. Does need significantly more force to get it in than original Canon design. Does not eject as original design, but needs to be pulled more. Became a bit looser during 10 first insertions, but still does not quite match the original.
Other:
I would still any day take a bit too tight battery connector over too loose one.
Bottomline:
With this price, I am more than happy with form, fit & function. It is just my personal scale that prevents me from giving overall rating of ***** to any product with such a simple connector stiffness issue
