Best choice from gamble.

This works. Its really a cost saving option compared to the Canon original. Canon overcharges for a power adapter. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because when loaded in camera (5DII) it gives you a warning that it cannot communicate with battery. So its not chipped, but since you're running from a mains, it doesn't really matter. If you need battery / ac information in the meta-tags of your pictures, then go for the original canon version.
A little note: I had not used a power adapter with my canon before buying this, so i didn't know how to properly install it. What ever you do, do not force the cap of the camera to close ONTO the cable. The battery has a little fit-and-slide space for the cable to go through, to exactly avoid 'cutting' the cable. Make sure you do this before inserting the battery in the camera.
A note for outside the UK. This adapter comes with a UK cable. Easily switchable to other types of plugs by replacing the cable, or with a plug converter.
Great, great purchase.
