    Erose86, these are no name brands and they have been making them for 1/5 the price for many many years :). It is like branded ink for inkjets and non-branded except there isn't much at all quality difference.

    I refused to pay 40 bucks for a new NIKON branded battery... ( at the time anyway)
    I bought 2 spare batteries off amazon. ( 7 bucks a piece) after checking them through reseller ratings, and watching there feedback.. I can honestly say i dont see a bit of difference.. and they work GREAT! worth 7 bucks.. absolutely.

    The only thing i was concerned about.. was, is this cheap ol' ass Battery gonna blow up and ooze crap in my camera and ruin it... but i did alot of reading around.. and i guess a battery--is just that " a battery ".

    Id go for it.

    Well they have a 10 year warranty on them as well.. and if they DID explode.. Id have to kick someones' ass...then make them buy me a new camera..haha. ( Seriously though..:x rawr!) lol

    *IF* you can afford the 40-60 bucks on a "canon" brand.. I wouldnt hesitate... but i couldnt at the time..haha.

    I see what you mean though.. i was like why....... is it like 30 some bucks CHEAPER.. or even 40 some in most cases.... Somethings not right.....
    :lol:

    Well, the last round of exploding batteries were named brand batteries made by Sony (Laptops). I don't think the brand matter as much though since even the named brands one can get them wrong (in this case, way wrong :))

    The ones to avoid are 'counterfeit' batteries. The will have the brand name on them (Canon, Nikon, Sony etc.) but will be slightly different and oddly cheap.

    Off-brand batteries like these, are often a good option. I've been using off-brand batteries for 5 years now. They were dirt cheap and last longer than the Canon ones.

    I have heard some say that they do tend to wear out faster, but considering they are 10-15% of the price, it's still worth it.
