I was wondering if anyone else thinks that the Canon chargers seem to take a really really long time to charge the LP-E6 batteries. I could probably charge 10 dead iphone is the time it takes to charge one dead canon battery.

I am using only genuine Canon chargers and batteries and I usually have to let my batteries charge all night long. How long does it take everyone else? Do the aftermarket ones work any better?

2 1/2 hours for me and that's a dead OEM battery on OEM charger. your charger and or batteries could be faulty or counterfeit. http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=612077

both my LC-6 and LC-4 seem to take about 3 1/2 to 4 hours charging time!but i'm thinking it depends how old your batterys are!don;t quote me on this though.

Cooper thanks for the link about the fake Canon stuff. I checked my batteries and three of them are definitely real however two of them are questionable. They look just like the "black market" ones that had pictures posted of them and I did buy these in Singapore or possibly Korea.

I was looking at buying another charger however with all the fake chargers out there has anyone had good luck buying them off Amazon. http://www.amazon.com …ID=41dZAAELOBL&​ref=plSrch (external link) the price is great, but is it too great??

Using OEM batteries and charger, takes about 1-1.5 hours per battery.
