I haven't seen any aftermarket batteries out there specifically for the 7DII's new LP-E6N (I'm sure it will take the aftermarket battery manufacturers a bit of time for a brand new battery type), but has anyone tried aftermarket LP-E6 batteries in their 7DII? Wasabi batteries seem to be well regarded (I have some for my GoPro), has anyone tried them in their 7DII?

I bought and am using these. They work exactly like the Canon batteries.

can the STK Canon LP-E6 Battery 2600 mAH use the new canon charger that comes with the 7dmk11 or do you need the stk charger?

My STK battery (same one as linked above) seems to charge just fine with the OEM Canon charger that came with my 7DmkII.


7Dmk2, Tokina 12-24 f/4, Canon EF-S 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, Canon 70-200 f/4L IS, lots of little stuff, flashes, stands, and almost enough brains to be considered dangerous :confused:

The Canon chargers for the 60D, 70D and 7D2 all seem to be identical, as far as I can determine. They work just fine on the SterlingTek 2600 mAh batteries. I keep two sets of batteries for all three of those bodies with the battery grips... so 4 batteries per. Three out of the 4 have been SterlingTek and they've kept their charge characteristics longer than the Canon OEM batteries.
