Almost as good as the original – Replacement LP-E6 Compatible 7.4V 1500mAh Battery Pack for Canon EOS 5D MARK II/EOS 7D/EOS 60D Reviews

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

Pros:
The 5D Mark II registers the battery just like an original, and the original charger charges it just fine. Other third-party batteries I've tried are light and the 5D Mark II won't recognize them. Not this one, the camera thinks it's OEM Canon.
Cons:
I would estimate that this battery holds about 80% of the charge of an OEM Canon battery, which is completely fine at this price point.
Other:
Build construction looks surprisingly high quality.
Bottomline:
The bottom line is that you're better off buying 5 of these than 1 original Canon one.
