I am a fan of this brand, and I find they are dependable. They come precharged which is a plus and work for all my needs whether toys, cameras, flashlights, etc. Great product! A+++
Batteries eventually fail, some more readily than others. I use my camera on a regular basis, especially during the warmer months, often on a daily basis. The camera had no problem recognizing the batteries and displaying their power levels reliably. The charger recognized them as LP-E6 batteries and charged them appropriately. As I said I did have one fail, but not until after a long time of repeated use, it simply won't charge now, and after charging for sufficient time it's not holding a charge. The price difference between retail of $** vs less that $** for an individual battery is a huge deal for me. With the original battery and two backups I could spend a lot of time, taking a lot of pictures when I came across a productive location, rather than having to stop and wait for a battery to recharge before I could start shooting again, missing who knows how many great shots.
For the price, this charger works fine. Better than tying up camera for 3-4 hours charging battery. Although extra battery is not genuine, so far it has worked.
I'm really frustrated with camera manufacturers that require special batteries that can be very costly. Most camera batteries only last for 30 minutes of recording and when you can't use standard batteries it's really a pain. I purchase 4-battery pack and I love them and have never ran out of power again. Thanks Overstock for grouping this product.
