Pros:
This battery is so cheap, I couldn't believe it at first. It's fully compatible to the original Canon battery and can be charged with the original charger.
I tried it in My EOS 450D and it works perfectly!
It's Li-Ion, so no problems with 'memory effect' or the battery loosing it's charge.
Cons:
None that I can think of at the moment
Other:
I never had the problem (yet?) that my battery was empty when taking pictures. Therefore I never thought of buying a spare (expensive) Canon battery.
However, for the price of this battery, I just bought one. When going out with my camera on a long day taking lots of pictures, at least I know that I still have a extra battery with me.
Bottomline:
It you take lots of pictures, just buy this battery so you have a spare one with you 'just in case'. For this price you can't do wrong
