I checked the battery in my 5d3 this morning and got the unexpected red indicator showing 0 recharge performance. Tried to charge it, nothing, it wouldn't hold a charge. Installed another same thing, by now I am thinking unbelievable! $120 worth of batteries, prematurely shot
I came to the conclusion that these things are crap for what they cost. Two in a row, I really doubt that they have seen 30 recharges, I alternate between 3 batteries. I haven't used the camera since the arrival of the D810 but so what. I have a couple Nikon batteries showing new recharge performance after 3 years.
Anyway, are there any good reliable knockoffs? TIA
