I purchased two CB-511 batteries made by Digital Concepts. They are advertised as a substitute for my Canon Digital Rebel (Canon battery BP-511).

The CB-511 & BP-511 appear to be identical but the CB-511 will not accept a charge from the Canon CB-5L battery charger. Do I need a different charger or could both batteries be duds?

Stop fooling around with clone crap and buy a real BP-511. Is it worth saving a few bucks if you toast your Rebel or fry your charger? :roll:

I found the Canon bp-511 battery holds its charge really well.
I guess you get what you pay for though:roll:
