IT WORKS! – LP-E6 Compatible 7.2V 1800mAh Battery for Canon EOS 5D MarkII/Canon EOS TD Reviews

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

Pros:
Actually works with the factory charger, and the camera doesn't complain about the serial number! Exact fit, no forcing it in Feels well built - not crappy plastic like some products. I plan on picking up 3 more and a battery grip.
Cons:
Haven't tested the actual capacity yet, not a con yet -- it weighs within 4 grams of stock, I imagine the capacity to be very similar to stock...
Other:
Shipped from the factory in small blue box, with 'instruction manual' telling me not to light it on fire, etc. Came not charged - just enough to turn the camera on but flashing low battery. A quick charge later and it was off to the races!
Bottomline:
The official battery costs 3-5x more. You would have to be insane to not use this.
