    Just cheap. Nothing more.

    Excellent buy for 550D for the price

    posted by sreetk on 12/02/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Excellent buy for the price, considering it almost doubles up my battery power while using with my BG-E8 Vertical External Battery Grip for Canon EOS 550D. It is a cheap 1200mah battery. Comes with a plastic cover in a cardboard box.
    Cons:
    No big cons so far. Only the feel is not as good as the original. No complaints, considering the price :-)

    Pros:
    It is a very good battery for the Canon 600D. It is loaded with original charger and has not given any problems. Shipping is very good, with a plastic sleeve to protect it.
    Cons:
    I do not know if I will have lifetime problems in the near future, but for now is an excellent article.

    It works on EOS 700D!

    posted by klaasman on 11/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * It works with EOS 700D. * Comes with yellow case, like the original. * EOS 700D detects battery correctly and displays full charge. Will need to use it more to determine if it determines the correct discharge level. *
    Cons:
    * Feels lighter than the original. * 7.4V instead of the original's 7.2V. But it should be ok since the external battery pack /...

    Works like my LP-E8 original

    posted by arielavi on 09/05/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's a battery pack, there's nothing to say much about but about it. It works as my LP-E8 original battery that came with my T3i, chargers the same. And you can't go out without an extra battery. Looking forward to get a battery grip.
    Cons:
    I think nothing at all. I found the package a bit too cheap, but that's not relevant since i got the battery working and in per...
