Finally an answer to Canon 7d and 5D2 battery price gripes.

Genuine OEM LP-E6 BATTERY FOR Canon 5D Mark II ,7D NEW on eBay (end time 12-Jul-10 12:11:11 BST)

A number of people have purchased and tested the above batteries in 7D and 5D2 bodies.

They are chipped and pass the correct info to the camera. They can be charged in the origional charger, and in my case have tested out perfectly.

They have one tiny problem that in that they are a little tight on the contacts in the centre of the cell underneath.

This just means you have to gently push them in and out of the charger 4 or 5 times and then they are okay.

They seem to have been made in Canon's China battery factory ( yes Canon do use China ). They bear the Canon name and the only giveaway is that where on the UK battery it has the warning writing in tiny writing in 4 languages these have the writing in what I can only presume to be Chinese.

My tests have proven mine to be functionaly and use wise identical to the origional.

Whilst I wouldn't take responsibility if anything goes wrong there are a number of us that have them now.

Look on BUY it NOW because they do list some postage free.

Mine cost me £21 go figure

Re: Finally an answer to Canon 7d and 5D2 battery price gripes.

Thanks for that, Chris!

Didn't know there were compatible batteries available - I got a couple of clones (plus the all essential charger to use with them) for about £16 (and one genuine Canon battery costing £54!). Had absolutely no problems and rarely use the genuine Canon ones.

Only prob I have had is with the camera, Err 40, which happens whichever batteries or grip/no grip combination. It is a power fault (apparently, according to t'Internet - Canon are useless for info) and only happens/ed in the cold weather (temps less than +5C)

Ebay item 150453191909 is what your links should point to but summats up with the way Pixalo modifies the URL


Not sure what your getting at Clanny.

Does that come with chipped batteries ?

I notice though that the seller does do the chipped batteries around the same price as the one I got

I have to admit to not being able to risk the camera with a compatible battery/ , ok ok i know im probably daft, but having two genuine canon batteries is enough for most situations.

Been using the one I got for a week or two now and I reckon it came from the same factory but is inherently cheaper in Hong Kong.

I understand where your coming fron Fiona.

Everyone that has these batteries now reckons they came out of the back door at Canons factory
