These batteries look good (900mah) and they are pretty cheap. if anyone is using one in their sd300/200 or in other camera for that matter please let me know if they are any good.



thanks, chris

i received the battery today and it looks good. was sealed in a retail package with a neck strap bonus. looks like they have a website... http://www.vidprousa.com.

it is charging now so i should be testing it later.

Please do post back, as I'm going to be purchasing the SD200 next week, which of course uses the same battery.

BTW, where did you buy it? :-)

i bought it at amazon.com. last night i took about 15 min of video and a 100 or so pics as well as a bunch of video playback etc. and the battery still has power left.

so at least for the moment this looks like a good generic alternative.

lafester,

Thanks for the info. Sounds like it would be worth getting - esp. for such a good price! :?

Will these batteries work in my SD200? I bought my camera a week ago and have taken 4 photos and, admittedly, played around withit to see how it works for, maybe, half an hour. Although I charged up the battery prior to using the camera, it has already needed recharging. How long are rechargable batteries supposed to last? I know that some power is still used up even if the camera is off. Is it worth taking the battery out if the camera isn't being used, even for a couple of days? Can I use any battery (of the same type)?

yes these will work in your sd200.your battery should last for like 400 photos before it runs out. it sounds like something is wrong with your battery or camera if it is running out that quickly.
