I have since 4 month in use a genuine Canon BP-511 and a Hahnel BP-511 (1300mah). The problem is both batteries last so long that time in use becomes unnoticed. Both batteries perform 'good as yesterday'.

The problem with 3' party batteries may be the less secure manufacturing and thus safty of the battery in function. I would not like to test any no brand battery in expensive equipment or gear close to my body. The Hahnel battery was sold by a professional photo store (the kind of store that let you first answer some riddles before you are granted entrance) and these batteries are less expensive than the Canon version.

My 2nd battery is an E-Power (Emerging Power) and works just as well as my BP-511
