Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
This battery is way cheaper than the official Canon one. It holds its charge and works like it should. It feels pretty solid and has a plastic cover like the official one.
Cons:
I have a Canon T1i and it is difficult to eject the battery. You're taking a risk since it might void your warranty and considering this battery is for your expensive DSLR, you might not want to take it.
Other:
Bottomline:
If you're looking for a cheap battery you can't go wrong with this. Just make sure to carry something to eject the battery when it gets stuck.
