Check the chargers, they are likely UL approved.

Samsung chargers--nope, not UL approved.

That is surprising, especially if they are the original chargers as supplied by Samsung. As you likely are aware there are an abundance of counterfeit chargers available. Having said that my Samsung charges, one for a Note 10.1 (2014) and the other for a Galaxy S7 phone, both have the UL symbol, but there is so much text that I have to use a magnifying glass to find it.

"Genuine" UL listings will have adjacent to the UL mark the license number although UL will tell you that these get counterfeited as well. My S7 charger for instance bears the UL file number E119368. You can go to UL website and look that up and get the details (see http://database.ul.com …_id=1073992439&​sequence=1 (external link)). Using the UL file number search at http://database.ul.com …SEXT/1FRAME/gfi​lenbr.html (external link) can be quite informative.

Well, I'm thinking of pulling my 5D Classic out of hibernation, along with my old 10D, and G5. Problem being once again, Batteries. I've only found a couple, and the jury is still out on reviving them.
I see SterlingTek is now selling via Amazon, and I may hunt a few of those up.
Anybody have any other suggestions for aftermarket BP 511, and 512's?

Hey Ballen,

I've bought more Sterlingtek over the years, most of them off Amazon (external link) if they had the type i needed on there. It looks like they currently are running a coupon so you can get a 2-pack even cheaper. Check it out here. (external link). I'd say the price is essentially the same as the same no-name brands that pop up all the time, can't go wrong with these.

Yeah, I just bought a two pack from them. In fact, that exact deal. Thanks for the quick reply. :-)
