Duracell Replacement Battery,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Duracell Replacement Digital Camera Battery For Canon NB-6L Digital Camera Battery (Camera)
The original Canon batteries that came with my digital camera did not last five minutes. I was continually changing batteries every thirty or forty shots, which was patently ridiculous. Bran new replacement original Canon batteries had exactly the same problem. I tried Duracell batteries, which were half the price of the Canon batteries, only to discover to my delight that a battery lasts for three or four hundred photos, dependant upon how much the flash and the zoom lens is utilised, and how often photos are reviewed on the camera screen (one of the heaviest uses of batteries on most digital cameras, particularly those with larger screens). I do not normally advise using anything other than the manufacturers original parts, as I have, no doubt like many other people, run into difficulties, and an apparently cheap option has proved far more expensive and troublesome. However, in this instance go for the Duracell NB-6L, not the Canon batteries. I suggest Canon do something about sorting the life of the batteries that they supply out. I have followed all their advice about ensuring I only use batteries which are freshly charged as I am aware some types of battery lose power over a period of time.

Keep in mind that some cameras have bad firmware that either drains the batteries too fast or gives a misleading "empty" warning. Check for a newer firmware for your camera.
