Hi there,

Does anyone know if BP-511 batteries work in the 20d? I'm thinking of upgrading and I'm wondering if there really is a difference between the BP-511 and BP-511A batteries.

Thanks for any help you can give me...

I use the following two batteries in my battery grip -

7.4v 1500mAh Li-ion Battery
7.4v 1400mAh Li-ion Battery

and as a spare I have the

Canon BP511A 7.4v 390mAh Li-ion as a spare

But as I only do one or two days at bike races, I've never had to use the Canon in ages! Stick with my battery grip and the two non-Canon batteries.

Bought the non-Canon ones off "evil"Bay, the original with the camera.

Hope this helps,
Carl.

Yes both the 511 and 511a work they are almost identical.

From the Canon 20D website specs:
Battery: BP-511A/BP-511/BP-512/BP-514AC power can be supplied via the optional DC coupler.

Battery Life: At 68° F / 20° C: 650 (No Flash), 500 (50% Flash Use), At 32° F / 0° C: 500 (No Flash), 400 (50% Flash Use). These figures apply when a fully-charged Battery Pack BP-511A/BP-511/BP-512/BP-514 is used.

Hi CarlsPhotos and PeterP,

Thank you ever so much for your reply. I'm so glad the BP-511 will work with the 20d as I have 4 of them and didn't want to have to purchase new ones.

Thanks a bunch guys! :-)
