I've been in touch with Wasabi/Bluenook over their 3rd party LP-E6 batteries.

They now work with the Canon 6D, and I received a shipment last week and have been very impressed.

For the near term, I'd recommend adding a note that the order is for the Canon 6D, so you don't get an older unit off the warehouse shelf.

Great news. Thanks for letting us know. My old 3rd party battery didn't even seem to charge in my new charger. Strange. Off to Amazon. EDIT: ordered

I got these in today and they work great. They charge properly and show the proper charge in the camera. For $30 including an extra charger and a car charger, I don't know how you can go wrong. Thanks Kumsa!

Many of my older LP-E6 batteries are now on the Red bar for recharge performance, so I decided to get a few extra Wasabi LP-E6 batteries. I figured if they didn't work in the 6D, they would at least work in other cameras that use this battery. I didn't make any special note about these batteries are for the 6D. The 6D was able to communicate with all the batteries. Amazon hasn't updated the listing that it is compatible with the 6D yet, but the ones I ordered Saturday (http://www.amazon.com …Canon-LP-E6/dp/B0041MY32Y (external link)) and received today all worked.

Thanks for the heads up on this. I am going to wait a few weeks and order some. 2 batteries + charger for cheap. Can't beat that.
