No indicator on camera, May 21, 2010
The price was right, but the outcome is far less than expected. The camera cannot communicate next to the battery so you have no hypothesis how much time you have. The charger has a green street lamp when you plug it in but doesn't change to tolerate you know the charging status. The batteries work but make it difficult to plan.
Good buy and sell, May 17, 2010
Excellent deal, particularly when compared to the price charged by Canon for its charger. Includes charger, two battery and a car charger (wasn't entirely clear to me that the car charger be included).
The charger is a little plastic box with a foldable plug within it. Pop a battery in, fold the plug out, and plug it into the wall. The saloon charger is just a cable that connects to the plastic charger box, but is obviously immensely handy.
One gripe: I have a Canon VIXIA HF M30. While these batteries will power it, the camera doesn't endorse them, so it won't tell me how much juice they enjoy left in them when I use them. That is, when I use the Canon-brand mobile that came with the camera, near is a little green battery god on the camera's screen that is fully green when the mobile is 100% charged, and then becomes clear as I use up the charge. There is also an indication of approximately how lots minutes of battery life I own left. These are important so that the camera doesn't run out of liquid and shut off while I'm filming (i.e., I know ahead of time when I want to charge or change the battery). Neither of these indications appear when I use these off-brand batteries. Instead, when I first put one of them surrounded by, I get an error message on the camera's touch-screen (and a prompt from the camera asking me if I want to ignore it, which I do). I can afterwards use it to power the camera, but don't know when it will die. For this reason, I haven't been competent to tell how many minutes these battery will give me. But they're cheap enough so that I can hold a few extras on hand and just swap out periodically after using them (every 1/2 hour or so, for example).
So overall, the charger is a really appropriate deal. The batteries are a dutiful backup battery, but not a perfect substitute for the valid thing.
