I believe that lots of people who got a camera would like to have a backup battery in case of emergency. £7.49 to buy a one-year-warranty battery would be an economical choice comparing to the pricey original one. However, it would provide a service time as long as the original has.

Also fits Canon EOS 1100D (I think its the same camera, just different name here)
thx 4 the remind!
I'm not a big fan of cheap third-party Li-Ion rechargeable batteries in expensive equipment. Partly for fear of fire/explosion risk, partly for fear of damage, partly for fear of invalidating the manufacturer's warranty.

Each to his or her own, though.
Buyer beware of cheap Chinese batteries where the streetlights dim when you go to charge them.

Lots of fear but any evidence? Please explain how this would affect your warranty - you're not going to send the camera for service with a compatible in it are you?

You pay inflated manufacturer prices if you wish but I've had excellent experience with many compatibles and saved a fortune.
Used a few Anker Laptop batteries from Amazon. They've all been fine, unlike quite a few I've bought from Ebay and Deal Extreme (some of these have been shocking in quality). If these are the same standard as Anker laptop batteries, these will be fine.

There have been plenty of incidents of cheap Li-Ion batteries catching fire and/or exploding over the last few years. Furthermore, Nikon - to list one manufacturer - refuse to cover warranty claims caused by third-party accessories. I wouldn't be surprised if Canon have a similar policy. You might not intend to return a faulty device for repair with a third party battery installed, but if it's melted and welded itself to the camera body, that might be difficult to avoid!

Note that the choice isn't all-or-nothing, expensive originals or cheap copies - there are good quality copies available too. I'd be happy with Hähnel batteries, for instance. EDIT: Jacobs have the Hähnel HL-E10 equivalent for £14.99. I don't think an extra £7.50 is an excessive premium for what's likely to be a better quality and safer battery for a £300-400 DSLR body.

The original Canon batteries are not that expensive so why would I buy this?

In fact, the battery that comes with mt 600D (Rebel T3i) lasts for about 1000 photos so I don't even think a spare battery is required.

Not voting either way though.
well, i‘ve bought several Anker product, they all worked nicely. I suppose this battery would worked finely as the other Anker production.
