This site has one with about 2x the mAH and it's $15


Is it any good?

What about the "Impact" brand 850 mAH alternative that is selling on the B&H site?

What is the general consenus? Use Canon batteries for the XT or are these alternatives just as good if not better?

Do I have to worry about warrenty issues if I were to use a non-canon battery (since it appears Canon obviously wanted a proprietory design).

Lastly, here is a question regarding the charger:

How does the Canon charger work? Is it a smart charger or does it just stop at the approximate mAH value of the canon brand battery? If this is so then having the extra mAH from the sterlingtek battery won't help.

Hello Nelmr,

It is my humble opinion that it would work fine. It will take longer to charge, but should charge up fine.

I would guess that if the battery pack malfunctioned and took out the camera, Canon would not stand behind their warranty unless it happened with a Canon battery pack.
