Seems this happened to a few people. I hope they didn't do it on purpose and are only refunding those who complained, although I'm sure they are, but at least I hope that wasn't their intention.

I know I'm definitely going to be looking out for that refund.

Pretty sure they're not going to refund unless you complain... which is what I did on Saturday. I received my refund on Sunday and they're sending a return envelope for the batteries. I also requested they send the correct Maximal batteries but there was no response for that. Guess I'll have to wait and see.

Personally I like these LP-E6 batteries. STK's Canon-7D Battery High Capacity 2600mAH. ( http://www.amazon.com …/B005DHKJYM/ref​=pd_cp_p_0 (external link) ) They have 2600mAH compared to most LP-E6 which run from 1500mAH - 2000mAH. The Canon one I have is only 1800mAH. So that's 3600mAH in a "grip" for $130 for Canon's vs. 5200mAH in a "grip" for $50 on the STK's. That's almost 1.5x more power for 38% of the cost of the Canon's.

The STK's cost more at $25 than the cheapie ones but they have anywhere from 30% to almost 50% more power storage capacity then other brands. So when you factor mAH's / $ you have a very comperable price.

They also seem to get great reviews.

I also got the promise of a refund and a return envelope.

My thanks to those in this forum who blazed this trail first. It probably made my email to them easier to handle.

Sterlingtek, MaximalPower and many other 3rd party batteries report and also charge on the Canon charger now. When the first 3rd party batteries came out, they didn't report or charge on the OEM charger (at least not for the 7D, maybe they did on the 5DII). Of the 3rd party batteries that do charge and report, some show the same serial number when used in grips.

I just received one from Amazon today. It reports in my 7D and it isis on the charger now.

It arrived in a factory package and it is labeled on the bottom with a Maximal sticker. Rated at 2 amperes. I will report back if it doesn't perform well.

i ordered one of these batteries and have had it for about 3 weeks now and have used it a few times.

i fully charged it when i got it and went out and took about 100 photos within a weeks time. my battery already went down to about 40% in that week. didn't seem too good. i recharged it again the night before i had to shoot video. after an hour the battery icon started blinking and died shortly after. popped in my canon battery after that and it lasted about 4 hours of mixed recording and live view on. recorded about 19gb of video with the canon one.

yesterday i charged it up again. took some photos yesterday and today. i have about 130 clicks on this charge and its already at 33%. this battery sucks ass...

I'm going to contact the seller or maximal power to see if i can get it swapped out. maybe i got one of those duds. i have 2 decoded ebay batteries that i bought over 2 years ago that work better than these and i bought those for 9 bucks each.

My experience is not as ad as booja but I've done 3 charges and my battery is lasting no more than half that of the Canon. Wondering if others had similar experiences...

I have at least 5 of the "real" Maximal's and 2Canon OEM. Only one of my new Maximals indicated by the Canon charger's light that it was totally charged after just a few minutes. After reading the "rules" on the back of the battery package I placed the battery back into the charger for 10 hours even though the charger light indicated "charged". The results are a literal clone to the Canon OEM!
So Canon at 59.00 or Maximal at the orig 10.00 and now 14.25 is a no brainer for most!
Even worst case scenario, half the mileage was the case, (which mine and other haven't been) for my $$ it's still a more than solid deal!

I've had a similar experience to booja with one of my batteries. I haven't tried the other battery yet. I just recharged the first one overnight so I'll give it another go and hopefully things will go better.

I'd really like these batteries to do the trick. I have a trip coming up where I'm going to need 6-8 batteries along for the ride and these would be far more economical...

The last three times, I've been charging the battery overnight, and after the last charge, I'm down to 3 bars after just 31 shots. With the Canon, I can easily get more than a couple hundred shots before one bar ticks off. Looks like there's quite a bit of variance with the quality of these batteries.

I have a Maximal battery I ordered directly from Amazon, LLC. It reports correctly and while I haven't done any exact tests, it is similar enough to the original Canon for my uses.

For these batteries I think it is important to order from Amazon, LLC and not third party sellers. That way you ensure you get a legitimate maximal battery.
