Default replacement battery 550D/T2i $ 6.99

Thanx to Chinese people :-)
Now you can find 3rd party batteries for 550D/T2i for $ 6.99 (or more).
Search ebay.com.

I'm using for all my cameras cheap Chinese replacement batteries, even for GH1 etc. All work well.

Two responses:

1. Be careful - poor batteries can cause all sorts of subtle problems that end up compromising image quality.

2. As long as #1 doesn't apply - Hooray!!

Hehe, I use ~ 10 replacement batteries for my cameras, all good quality for 1/10 of price. A lot of them have more mAh than original, have golden contacs, not tinned like originals.

Original and expensive batteries for GH1 f.e. also are "Made in China"

They may be out there, but I really don't think I am going to be trusting my T2i to cheap batteries. The issue is that they can vary their output or leak, either one will cause issues on electronics.

I know - and HATE rappers (blown out brain ..) and their "music" - same quality like
tschingstatara by Florian Silbereisen & friends. No, Florian's is 3% better :-(

My SIDO battery for Lumix G1/GH1 works well - so I also hope for 550D :-)



SIDO and BUSHIDO ... two silly guys/gays.
They never could sing, they never will learn it.
Funny mask ... for 4 years old childs ... impressing 3 year old childs ...

Also ... for children 5 and 6 years ... :-)
