Well, I was mistaken (happily) - the Powerplanet seems a really good battery.
I have only been running it about a week but it has had heavy daily use and is holding up well so far. It seems to take a couple of recharges/use in the camera to settle down for an accurate 'percentage left' reading but I also found the same with Canons own brand battery that came with the camera.
This battery works fine with Canons own charger and acts in my 7D camera just like the original battery. It registers normally with the camera and the 'remaining percentage charge' display in camera is fully operational.
I use my camera a great deal so I have now ordered a 2nd of these batteries as this first one has been a real success so far. They last a long time on a charge so it will mean I don't have to take the charger etc. with me when I go away for long weekends etc.
Edit 1 - additional info:
Some weeks later and I have been using these batteries heavily and they are excellent, so far I have gone up to 600 photos one one day just using one battery and it still had more than 40% charge left in it. In the orig review I forgot to say they each came with a handy clip on cover to protect them when not in camera/charger.
Edit 2 - additional info:
I have ordered in the last 18 months several PowerPlanet brand batteries for both my Canon 5d and 7d.
This model battery is the one that fits the 7d.Read more ›
As for the battery its works perfectly, I charged it and shot with it this afternoon in the studio to try it out, it charges in the Canon Charger and displays info on the camera, it even counts the shutter releases and displays the battery information, I checked and it had shot 800 images and was displaying that it had 63% left, this was on the 1st charge and its about the same as Canons own battery, I am very happy, as its approx 1/3 of the price of Canons.
I shall give an update if it goes pear shape, but as it stands, its works perfectly unlike the Ex-Pro battery that was more expensive and didn't work, had to return.
I decided to run the battery until it had 2% power left and checked the shutter count, the Battery had delivered 2387 shots in studio conditions, lens used for the test were Canon 50mm f1.4 and Canon 85mm F1.8, flash heads/strobes were triggered via Elinchrom Skyport trigger system, Raw and Jpeg small were captured and processed to sandisk cards, I am very impressed as the back LCD is switch on and I also spent time showing clients sample images from the shoots,
So still very highly remommended. :)
Following the appearance of my review, I was contacted by PowerPlanet's customer service department and offered a new LP-E6. I'm pleased to report there are no issues with the replacement battery. It appears that PowerPlanet have dealt with the previous compatibility issue. Not only does the battery's power level show on the camera's main display, its serial number and remaining capacity can be accessed via the camera's menu system alongside those of the original Canon battery.
As the PowerPlanet LP-E6 has a capacity of 1600 mAh compared with 1800 maH for the Canon original, battery life is inevitably slightly shorter. Given the level of customer service shown by PowerPlanet, however, and the fact that their battery is less than a quarter of the price of Canon's, it seems only fair to give this product five stars.
After an afternoon of shooting photos and a few videos until the battery was empty, I charged the PowerPlanet battery and tried it again the next day. It worked much the same way, with a full charge it didn't last more than a few hours.
Now after two months of light usage - charging up once a week or so - I'm sorry to say the battery is just about dead. I noticed today that my "fully charged" PowerPlanet battery, properly stored for just a week, now only shows half a charge on the camera display and dies in about 15 minutes. My Canon battery still holds a full charge after three years, this one is dead after less than three months.
At this price I didn't expect 100% performance, but it is basically unusable now. Hope I can get a refund!

Purchased in August 2014, was fine until it stopped working just over a year later.
So cheap compared to the Canon one it may be worth it but I'll be getting a Duracell... Read more
This lasted a handful of months before becoming a dead piece of junk. A real Canon battery may be an awful lot more but it still works out to be better value.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Very good product, far cheaper that Canon branded battery. Only negative point is that battery life is significantly shorter than original.Published 1 month ago by Richard Allen
