Hi Guys
What is your choice of third party LP-E6 battery and charger ?
I do have a couple of Canon set, but wanna get some more for extra.
Please no argument about Canon vs third party brand, etc.
Just wanna hear some opinion/recomendation from other who uses third party brand (battery/charger) and happy with it.
Thanks.

There's several threads/post relative to your question here in "Accessories Forum" and in the "Market Watch Forum".
You'll hear the names Sterlingtek, Maximal and Wasabi, probably in that order!
All these kick Canon on price, function just like Canon OEM
and in the case of Sterlingtek customer service is outstanding!
Check some of these threads.............. you'll learn a ton!
Good luck!

I've only got Canon LP=E6 batteries (no third-party manufacturers when I got them), but from my experience with BP-511s, I'd go Sterlingtek.

+1, I have been using them for years with no issues

Most dual chargers charge serially; get two individual chargers if parallel charging matters.

Cheapest with chips is the one I choose.
Usually packages (Combination of charger and few batteries) are cheaper on ebay and likewise and that is what I suggest.

I use 2 oem batteries in each body but I do have 2 Maximal Power brand backup batteries. I do not have to use them much, but when I have used them, they were great. They mostly just sit in my bag. :) Amazon carries them.

No idea about chargers, but sterlingtek or wasabi from Amazon will do you just fine for batteries.

Does the SterlingTek have the same battery serial number in all of them?
I am comparing them to Wasabi before I buy them.
