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

Pros:
It works with the Canon charger and you can see the charge level when using it.
Cons:
The battery life isn't as long as the official Canon battery. I had a charging issue with one of the four I bought... when it charges the lights keep flashing way beyond it's usual charge time. Putting it back on again seems to fix it. Seems the chip might be a bit iffy - the same problem happens putting it in the camera occasionally, it sometimes fails to recognise it.
Other:
Bottomline:
Overall I'm happy I got these as a backup to the official battery. Despite minor issues they've mostly been reliable and for the price they are great to have as backups to the real deal.
