Very, very good battery – Canon LP-E8 Compatible 7.4V 1200mAh Battery Pack for Canon 550D Reviews

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

Pros:
-All 5s.
-Great value for little money.
-Just like the original! Perhaps a bit shorter lifetime, but really unnoticeable.
-Charges in the original Canon battery charger even though it is Lithium-ion and not Lithium-polymer like the original.
-Really safe, I did firmware flash on my camera with it, no problems whatsoever.
Cons:
-No cons really.
-For the sake of the "Cons" rubric, I can say that I wish it was Lithium-polymer as the original instead of Lithium-ion.
Other:
Great, great battery.
Bottomline:
Get it. Even if you don't shoot much, it'll be worth the price even if you happen to need it only once. Imagine draining the juice from your original battery on a nice shooting occasion and not having a spare. A horror, I tell you.
