    The bad ratings for this product appear to be directed toward the vendor moreso than the batteries in question. I’ve recently bought these batteries for use in a Canon dSLR. I really don’t need an extra two batteries since I already have two Canon batteries but the price was so low I couldn’t resist. My observation thus far is that they work just fine. While they may not last in the long run like the Canon batteries, that would need to be determined later.

    These batteries ARE sold by and branded as Sterling Tek.

    The price is great, the batteries take and hold a charge, the camera shoots pictures and doesn’t flash errors or explode. That’s what they’re supposed to do.

    EDIT 12/17/2012:

    These batteries worked fine in rotation with the original Canon for about four years but then both of them refused to take a charge. The original Canon battery continues to function perfectly however.

    I’ve revised my review from a 5-star rating to a 3-star rating. Obviously the Canon original battery is better. However it is also considerably more expensive. Given the cost differential between the two brands, I cannot say the ST batteries are not a good deal. But the Canon BP511A may be a better buy depending on your use and requirements.

    I’ve used these with my 20D and they initially hold a charge longer than the Canons. I had a previous SterlingTek that had to be retired, but getting 2-3 years out of a battery at this price is a deal.

    When it comes to batteries for CANON SLR system this is the way to go… They are one third of the price compared to the CANON battery and they work as good if not better. This is the way to go.
