So my 1ds Mark III's battery charger busted a few days ago and I ordered a charger for it on batteryfly.com... wondering if anyone has used an original camera battery with an aftermarket or non-canon brand charger and had success. I'm supposed to receive the charger tomorrow but I also have a session tomorrow evening and I've just about shot all of the power of both of my batteries. I just don't want to be screwed at the session!!! The aftermarket charger says to use their aftermarket batteries, but I don't see why it wouldn't work with the original battery because the positive and negative prongs for charging are the same.. Any information would be helpful.. Thank you!!

I have used an aftermarket one and it did not respond to the chip in the battery to accurately relay how much battery life was left even though battery was charged.


Canon stuff....
