Best price I see for genuine Canon, with free shipping too of course.

Third party batteries are just as good, if not better in some cases. No need to waste the money on official branded ones. :)

There are threads about non chipped batteries not charging in the Canon charger and not registering in the camera. I'll keep my battery OEM Canon.

Oh sure.. there are so many third parties out there you're bound to get a few bad experiences. But when I can purchase 10 batteries for the price of your 1 Canon, I don't mind if 1 or 2 end up being worthless. That's why true bargain hunting is all about research. :)

I do see your point and understand the sentiment, but my time is valuable and I'd rather not waste it being a beta tester. I'm no treehugger and I'm not trying to get up on a high horse, but buying 10 of a potentially inferior product so I can throw away a couple bad ones seems wasteful.

Over the years I've purchased many many generic batteries for my D30, 10D, 20D, 40D, 7D, and 1DIIn

All performed to perfection and all of them combined probably cost as much as this one battery.

To those who keep patting themselves on the back for paying pennies on the dollar for generic batteries... keep in mind that original canon batteries are going to hold their value for a number of years. There are no shortage of 7d and 5d2 camera users, and the LP-E6 batteries are in high demand. I could easily sell my used LP-E6's right now for about $50 in the selling section. You can't say the same for your generics--no one is going to offer any amount of money for used generics... you've basically bought the monetary equivalent of a rock.

Batteries aren't lens. They DO degrade each time you recharge them. No way I'm going to buy "3 years old, in pristine shape, I use them but I baby them" batteries. Whoever buys them, good luck.

Even if you sell those for $50, after shipping and fees and all that you lose around $20. I can easily buy generics for less than that amount and just toss them when they're dead.

I've read both good and bad reviews on POTN about the 3rd-party batteries. Since there was no clear consensus any brand compatible LP-E6 worked every time for all users then I chose not to take the risk. I don't need 5, much less 10, batteries so spending a little more to have an extra OEM in my bag isn't going to put a dent in my finances.

Lithium ion rechargeable batteries degrade over time whether you're using them a lot . . . or even not using them at all. They have a shelf life. Of course there are ways to prolong their life but that's mainly by not abusing them.

They should be stored long term at about 50% of capacity.
Exposing them to high heat (like leaving them in a car in the summer sun), especially when fully charged, will also shorten their life.
