Stay with Canon
I keep three batteries and I shoot out of doors almost exclusively. I don't bother counting how many images I get, but probably 400 or so. Two batteries is not enough because I am traveling and don't always want to start the generator up to re-charge them, some camps have quiet hours and I'm out shooting 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. anyway.

If you're shooting in the cold, then change batteries put one in your shirt to warm up, before they die, and they will self recover and allow more shooting.

Spare batteries are an essential piece of kit and they must be reliable, especially given the weight and size of these. [...]. It simply didn't connect properly. I ordered a Canon OEM but was sent a recycled battery that didn't even fit my IDs Mk11. the moral is don't buy cheap, get an original, and don't get palmed off with a reprocessed battery.

I've never tried third party batteries for my 1Ds Mark II, so I can't comment on how this battery compares. However, this is the fourth NP-E3 I've owned. My first three (used on rotation) lasted me almost 7 years. They still work, but they will only hold a charge for a hundred or so shots. When new, these batteries will last for days of constant shooting without needing to be recharged. They're awesome.
I have tried the off brands and found the hit and miss to be irritating. Get the original Canon brand and quit wondering if you got a good one. I know it is way more costly but when you consider you might have to buy several off brands to get a good one, the price isn't too bad! Plus the Canon fits. Another thing I had issues with the off brands.
There is nothing better. Forget generic
My original battery would not hold a charge anymore. This brand new Canon battery brought new life into my 1d Mark IIn. As usual, the Adorama service and shipping was superb.
Daily use in work
Great for daily use cameras!
Service was great!
All CANON USERS, ALWAYS BUY CANON ACCESSORIES FOR YOUR CANON PHOTOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT, BEST QUALITY STANDARDS.
It was the purchase of three of the same type of batteries. Once charged, they are reliable, long lasting and great to use. I buy the Canon batteries rather than the "one off" batteries as they last longer, and are much more reliable.
I had bought some "after-market" brands for a lot less money. In the end they did not perform like a genuine canon battery. If you work depends on reliability for a given charge don't hesitate to spend the extra $. After-market stuff lasted for under a 100 shots...
