Nice spot, ordered a couple of these.

thanks

ordered 2 many thanks

good find i hope, will show OH later

Good spot!!

Nice One. ordered a couple myself. Thanks

Not sure but this may not be an 'original' Energizer item, I ordered a similar battery from them before and it came in a generic white box and didn't look like a branded battery. Worked well enough so no complaints for the price I paid. Still voted hot...

Yeah, most if not all of 7day shop's items are sent without retail packaging and end up in a usually squashed flimsy white box. Makes you wonder where these items are being sourced. Still, have ordered a couple of bits from here before and they at least work, though I must question the 3 year guarantee on these batteries.

thanks,bought a couple for my 500D.

Apparently £32 on Jessops jessops.com/onl…tml

Whether or not these are genuine will remain to be seen, but for this price I've gone for 2. They will be going back however if they don't match the image on the website.

They probably aren't... tried searching for 'Canon' on the energizer.com website... hint, no results...

Bought 2 of these a while ago when it was on Play.com for about the same price, it does come in proper plastic casing and both batteries worked very well during a trip to Hong Kong/China. I can't comment whether the 7Dayshop will be genuine Energizer or not tho, can't see why not, never had any probs with 7Dayshop.

Jessops sell them through their website though, chances are that genuine versions of these batteries at the very least exist. Last I checked, major high street retailers weren't in the business of selling fakes.

The blister packed Energizer branded DSLR batteries seem to cost a lot more (2-3x) than even the stated full price on 7dayshop. I have still to charge my cheapo battery so we'll see how it compares to the 'real' ones.

Mine arrived today - not blister packed but at least the image on the site matches up.

Edit: Just compared it to the battery which came included with my 450d, the Wh rating on the energizer is only 8 whereas the one on the canon is 32. Basically the energizer battery is cheap and cheerful, but don't rely on it to last you a great deal of time before it will need recharging. Probably a good buy at a fiver, but most likely won't be worth too much more than that.

Another hint, if you want to work out the Wh and you only have mAh, do voltage * amps... i.e. with this one:
7.4V * 1080mAh /1000 = 7.992 Wh
the divide by 1000 is to counter the milli's being used, or you could do 7.4V * 1.080A = 7.992 Wh

Sorry for the maths and electrical theory lesson
