I knew I saw a battery thread, but couldn't find it.
The Zeikos battery came with my 6d package. I tried charging it with the canon charger when I first opened it. It was blinking slow for 20 seconds, then started to blink fast. I charged it for a about 4 hours just to see if it worked. The battery lasted for only 50 shots. Then tried to charge it again for a few hours. After a few hours of charging, it didn't work.
I contacted Beach Camera, they sent me a new one real quick. The same thing happened.
After reading a few threads, I found that aftermarket batteries and canon chargers don't mingle well.
So I bought a cheap Opteka charger on amazon just to see if it can charge the Zeikos battery. It did, and now I can use it on the 6d.
Hope this helps anyone with same issue.
