It's a fake, it doesn't say it's chipped so it may not register on your 7d.
Price is ok for a third party battery.

No, they don't, they only started to come out of the woodwork with chipped aftermarkets this past January, but there are still both out there.

I heard that register, but all of them have the same registration code

I just bought some optex and phottix Lp-e6 batteries and they both register and function 100% in the 60D and battery grip.

There are both chipped and non-chipped aftermarket batteries, you have to watch the descriptions.

digging up a very old thread here but hoping someone can help - this is the best place I found to ask from a google search...

I've got a 5DII and 7D, both gripped, and bought a couple of compatible LP-E6's from ebay (external link). They both show the same registration info as yjt said and I'm wondering would it cause any kind of issues (thinking more of battery levels as opposed to 'cheap battery' issues) if I used both in the same grip?

Other thing I'm thinking about is that these are stated at a higher rating (2100mAh) than the originals, and I've always thought mixing ratings is a no-no. My flash for example always uses the same set of 4 batteries. Would there be any difference using 2 compatibles in the 5DII say, and the 2 originals in the 7D....or 1 of each battery in the cameras.

On a side-note, I have used compatibles to great effect in my 50D, and they lasted many many uses before starting to lose charge quickly so I'm happy with the massive saving over originals. Also noted this time, these compatibles are considerably lighter than the originals.

Original LP-E6 rated 1800mAh - 77g
Compatible LP-E6 (as per ebay link) rated 2100mAh - 52g
Other compatible (external link) previously bought, rated 1300mAh - 74g

Hope to hear some opinions on the registration info, thaaanks :)

EDIT: what!? My first post?! Can't be, surely!! I've been an avid reader since I joined but guess I've never actually posted on this forum :confused: that said, I do like to read a lot before asking questions so must have always found what I needed to know before :D

Is saving a few bucks worth the risk considering its powering up equipment that's worth thousands?

Just a thought

Yes. This has been hashed out countless times before. The only risk is spending $15 for a battery that might not last as long each charge or as long across a year or so as compared to the factory battery that costs 4-5 times as much.

Same registration number on both just means that the camera won't really be able to track stats on each individually, nothing more.

I would use 2 equally rated batteries in a grip at a time at the very minimum, and the same brand of batteries if at all possible.

I totally agree. I have used aftermarket batteries in all my bodies without issue and continue to do so in my 5DII when I need an emergency spare.
