I need to buy two new BP 511 Li batteries and a charger for my Canon G5. I have looked at two battery sites recommended on this forum and can not believe the low prices. $15.00 and for a charger, $12.00 for BP 511 7.2 volts, 1800 MA battery on one site.$40.00 for a charger and $20.00 for a BP 511 7.4 volt ,1300 MA battery on the other site. Are theseJUNK or are they WORTHY of buying. These are not Canon OEM equipment but "compatile". Money back within 30 days if not satisfied on both sites. Give me your opinion as long as you do not sell them. Thanks

I bought the $15 batteries for my Canon G1. They are MUCH better than the original canon batteries that I paid $70 ea. The Canon batteeries seem to last for about 40 flash shots, the $15 batteries seem to last forever. I never did take enough pictures to run them down. At a shower I took 131 flash shots and it was still going strong. Hey at $15 vs $70 I think you can't lose. Good luck.
PS. THe charger works great too.
