I'm a frequent lurker. My first time posting to the forum. I couldn't copy the link using iPhone but then I found the "share" icon on the amazon page.

A link would be great. Always remember that alternative Canon or non Canon batteries might not hold a charge as long as original Canon batteries.

Sorry OP for crapping, but generic (no name/reputation) LP-E6 under $10 is quite common on ebay. While this is a little cheaper than even those, the alarm bell is the fact that these are rated at 2600 mAh, while a real/original Canon battery is ~1800 mAh. My experience is that you MIGHT get slightly more shots for a few charge, then it goes downhill very fast. In 6 months, the battery won't give you more than 100 shots, and if you complain to the seller, you might get another crappy battery if you send the old one back, which is a waste of your time and postage... Some seller would give you a refund. But if you are running a DSLR that uses this battery, you are probably serious about your photo taking, and maybe it isn't worth saving $10 in getting a more reputable LP-E6 compatible battery. I used to be of the opinion that it was still economical to carry 4 crappy batteries that (combined) cost less than half the price of a real Canon battery, and get more shots (combined), but the weight of the battery, the experience of having them die on me after only a few shots a year later, and the hassle of having to charge them all frustrated me to the point that I stopped using the generics.

I understand. I've always used 3rd party batteries.

But my question to you is, why can't this one be one of those? My understanding is none of those guys make their batteries, and they all just source the batteries from elsewhere. STK doesn't make their batteries and heck the batteries came in basically unbranded, and people swear by it as if they made them, and I really don't understand.

I use STK's (Sterling-Tek), have four of them, two from 2011 that still work in my 7D & 5D2. I'll give DSTE's a try.
