A powerful, OEM battery for the XSi
This genuine Canon rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery (see attached photo) is essential. I wouldn't trust off-brands to replace it, when I'll be out in the countryside, or seeing the sights of Great Britain this Spring. From what I've seen so far, even with occasional flash photos, this battery will last a long time on one charge. Being a smart battery, it communicates with the camera, so you can have a good estimate of the remaining charge. I purchased two extra batteries so that I could kView full Review
This genuine Canon rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery (see attached photo) is essential. I wouldn't trust off-brands to replace it, when I'll be out in the countryside, or seeing the sights of Great Britain this Spring. From what I've seen so far, even with occasional flash photos, this battery will last a long time on one charge. Being a smart battery, it communicates with the camera, so you can have a good estimate of the remaining charge. I purchased two extra batteries so that I could keep one charging, and have two in the optional battery grip, which allows me to have twice the battery time. Using this grip, you can easily replace the batteries as needed using the insert (see attached photo), and the grip also comes with an insert that will take AA batteries for that emergency. The only drawback to the genuine battery is the cost, which is of course probably 50% higher than off brands, but Adorama's price is a good one compared to other retailers.

I looked everywhere.... couldn't find this. So I ordered it! very happy
Several years ago I bought a few Cannon LP-E5's and a few off-brand batteries. The knock-offs have all since ruptured and died but the real deal are still holding a full charge. Spend the money; buy the real thing.
Needed a spare. Received quickly, packaged well and works like it should.
Canon batteries are some of the best batteries on the market. they are reliable and dependable, I own many Canon products and use the manufactures products when possible. With so much to worry about on a shoot the last thing I need is a battery failure. If it's a Canon product then it's Canon replacement parts all the way.
Just like the original
Always, always, always have an extra fully charge battery with you. The most depressing moment in photography is to have that once in a lifetime shot and your battery goes dead! Learn from my experience :-) People say it is pricey. You get what you pay for. I have learned over the years to stick with manufacturers products. Reason why third party products are cheap is because they are cheap!
Gets a great amount of clicks (1500+) when shooting JPEG on my 450D but when shooting in raw it gets about 900. Great battery and if I lost it or if it was stolen I would definitely buy another which I did.
Battery delivered as advertised, in good condition, and on time.
good product, fast delivery
I plan to travel abroad and electricity is at a premium. I want to have a spare battery in case I cannot recharge first battery at my convenience.
