Would this be a terrible idea? It seems overly inexpensive. The guy has good ratings though.

These batteries aren't chipped or "decoded", they won't show the battery meter and won't be recognized by the 7d. They also won't be recognized by the Canon charger, so you need to use the seperete charger for charging.

If you want chipped LP-E6 that are recognized by the camera, POTN members have had success with this brand.

I have used the "OEM" version of the chipped battery from ebay (they try an copy the genuine version exactly), but have found the the cells used are poor quality and the battery capacity is very low and diminishes quickly. It would have been cheaper and easier to buy the genuine canon which has 4 times the capacity.

^^^^+1 , I've purchased 4 batteries ( Maximal brand ) from this seller and excellent product as well as fast shipping . You'll notice the cells are made in Japan which is the same as OEM Canon batteries . These are decoded so thay show all battery info . Combatmedic and a few others have had great results as well .

+1 for the Maximal batteries. I bought a pair from this seller and the transaction worked out great. The batteries are worth the money, in my opinion. I also noticed that the price keeps creeping upwards and they continue to sell well. This tells me that they must be holding up and that positive word of mouth must be getting around.

I bought a pair from Maximal. They charge on my OEM charger and display all of the info in the camera (7D) that the OEM batteries display. Only thing is one battery got stuck in my grip, and it also will only charge to 90% (4 times now). I managed to widen the gap slightly so the battery can be removed and inserted normally. As of now, I am not going to return it. It is not worth it to me to waste time and shipping to send it back.

I saw that the price actually dropped a couple dollars from the first pair I purchased .

what is causing it to bind are the central battery contacts, if you look closely you should the metal contacts, just use something flat to push these back in a little bit.

I noticed the 90% charging issue with my genuine Canon charger as well, strangely on a cheap third party charger they charge to 100%. These seems to suggest that the clone lp-e6 cells have a higher internal resistance to the genuine canon.

That's what I did.

I just wish I could find a good dual charger, especially now that I have four batteries.

Delkin is your best bet.

Really? Maximals from the same seller? They're $49.99 for the pair now. I bought them when they were $46.98.

I wish it was that easy. They have been out for the past couple of months...or they just don't have the plates period.

Maybe I have been looking in the wrong place.

i think its the delkin charger itself BUT it says it's a universal charger so you need a "plate" to put in your lp e6 battery unto the charger.

how reliable this battery is? but for $50 a pair, i think it s worth it if it will last at least a year, comparable if you buy $50 of eneloop( 8 AA + 4 AAA + charger ) -- in costco

7D of course. This is a thread about the 7D. :-)
And they haven't had the plates. I have been checking for months and they don't ever seem to be in stock. :(

In fact, B&H, Adorama and J&R Music are out of stock on the Canon OEM charger. The other places that have the charger are $10 - 15 higher. I need to do something so I can charge two at a time.

I just notice that the Maximal batteries are rated @ 7.4V 2000mah
and canon batteries @ 7.2V 1800mah

would the maximal batteries damage the camera 5d2 or 7d
