These battery packs seem to work perfect, especially considering their pricepoint.
I ordered two of these and I've been using them on a regular bases. As a primary battery I still use the original Canon pack that came with my 550D - but these packs seem to be practically identical.
It also seems that these battery pack don't get as warm as the original Canon pack. Which is kind of weird, but very positive! Can also be my imagination playing tricks on my senses though, since it would be insane if these cheap batteries would be better than the original
I haven't really found a con yet..
Why not get these?
