Canon Battery Pack LP-E8 for EOS T2i
Good price. It is a Canon battery as advertised. Works as a backup for the T2i Has a case to cover the wires to prevent short circuits.

I have several aftermarket batteries, which work fine, but what they don't do is accurately display their power state on the camera. So they appear to be fully charged by the display on the camera (my T3i) and then suddenly they show up as very low or just run out of juice. These Canon batteries actually show how much power remains which has kept me from running out of power when I need it. I sometimes shoot a lot of pictures, and a bit of video and using bigger, faster lenses with IS and autofocus can use up battery power, so having extra batteries that I can rely on is great.
Charges quickly and lasts a long time. It is worth buying canon products for for canon rather than knockoffs.
I own three Canon LP-E8's, and had two aftermarket batteries but now they won't charge. Decided to pay more money and have a long-lasting and reliable Canon brand. Canon batteries keep their charge, and give you many more shots than the specifications claim.
Fast delivery. NOT a fake. Charged up and works fine.
I purchased an aftermarket BAttery for my T3i. It turned out to be a big mistake. It was much cheaper than the Canon OEM but just never held a charge the was OEM batteries do. Don't make the same mistake I did. The Canon Battery is the best option. I tried to save a couple bucks and ended up paying twice.
I always buy canon brand batteries after I had a bad experience with the knock-off cheaper ones on a photo shoot.. the old saying you get what you pay for is true.The knock off's are not delivering the correct voltage and amps and will damage your expensive gear.. spend a little more and get consistent results.
I received one of these and an off brand when I purchased my Canon T3i a couple of years ago. The Canon battery pack is still working great and the off brand is dead.
I've just started using the batteries that I purchased and haven't had any problems with them. Using them alot for my photo class. So far, they're lasting longer than the one I replaced.
I needed a spare battery for my Canon Camera and bought the Canon LP-E8.This is the same battery that came with my T3i.It is nice to have a back up and Canon batteries are the best.Do not bother with a knock off brand because they will not last as long as the Canon.
I was a little leery buying this since the photo looks slightly different than the one that came with the camera. But it's perfect!
