Battery for Canon EOS

If you are after a replacement or backup battery for your Canon EOS digital SLR camera, you can find a range of high-quality genuine and third-party batteries that are compatible with each and every Canon EOS model. Decide whether you want to invest in a genuine Canon battery or search for more affordable third-party batteries that have a good track record.

Genuine vs. Third-Party Batteries

When searching for a replacement battery for your Canon EOS digital camera, you will find both genuine Canon camera batteries and third-party options. Third-party batteries tend to be attractive for their affordable price, but keep in mind that not all will match the performance level of genuine Canon batteries. Some are not manufactured to the rigid standards of genuine batteries and many not be weather-sealed, resulting in a poor performance or battery life in extreme conditions. Also, be aware that Canon has made it more difficult to use third-party batteries with its chargers, so you may need to invest in a new charger if you decide not to purchase genuine batteries.

Warranty Consideration

Its important to be aware that Canon will not take responsibility for camera malfunctions that result from non-genuine and counterfeit batteries. If your camera is still under warranty, then this is something to keep in mind when purchasing replacement or backup batteries.

Genuine Canon Batteries

Canon EOS 5D, 6D, 7D, 60D and 70D cameras come equipped with a LP-E6N lithium-ion battery pack that is compatible with both LC-E6 and LC-E6E chargers. It can be purchased online as a spare or replacement part and will easily work with your battery charger supplied with the camera. Alternatively, look for Canon EOS camera batteries with a charger included.
