5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine Canon, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon LP-E6 Battery Pack (Camera)
There are many reviews mentioning that this is a fake battery but this is a genuine Canon product. I got mine directly sold by Amazon, as opposed to "sold" by a shop in the Amazon Market and "fulfilled" by Amazon. It costs 1-2 pounds more than buying from the Amazon Marketplace. From the previous reviews it is not obvious which shop(s) were selling the fake ones.

The product is sealed and the packaging has the genuine Canon hologram as described in the following link (check the specific patterns of the hologram in the link):

[...]

It has been mentioned in one of the Canon forums:

[...]

that someone got a fake with the original packaging. However, in my case even if someone could re-seal the package the marks on the edges (with the red colour missing) as the packaging was torn would still be visible.

The blue label is different than the original battery which came with my 5D MK II, but apparently these things change over the years. The original did not have the silver label with the manufacturing date, this one has it. It is marked as "Europe only" on the side and it came with the yellow cover like the original one (see above link on Canon forum for the fake with a brown cover). The package contains a Canon instructor's leaflet as well.

Charges to 100% in about 2 hours.
Testing the battery: after 54 continuous shots it dropped to 98%.
