Keeping you waiting to April 2013 could be a marketing strategy, To keep you happy with the 5D3 until they announce some other camera, it wouldn't surprise me,

Guys It was my mistake, I believe I had the charger on a very low charge for all 4 batteries, I have no got all batteries on 700 ma, estimated time to full charge is 3 hrs, but it should be shorter as they are new batteries ,

thank you for all your help, you have been amazing

Yea 100% its on charge, says charge on the main screen for all 4 screens, its now 8hrs 30 Mins and 3 are full just 1 is still not full, I assume its going to be ready soon, but im shocked thats been on charge for 8:30 hours! and as you say they are recharged,

am I right in saying, if you make slot 1 charge at 700, the other 3 slots will default to that charge power?

Thank you Peter,

Call me stupid, but it is OK to use this plug adapter I live in the UK and the Re charger has a 2 pin head, and I need 3 pin for the United Kingdom, I have this plug adapter and it works, I just want to be sure its ok, as I don't want to burn the house down? :)

Hello all, I have just received my batteries and charger, do I need to drain the batteries and recharge them? the batteries are brand new in a packet? or simply recharge, or just leave alone,

thanks again

I don't want this thread to slip, its super important, i want it back up to the top of the page, I really hope it gets read by everyone

I believe everyone's camera is the same, its a general problem, I've learnt allot from these forums, they are those people who take pictures for work and those people who don't do it enough to realize these problems exists, give me a camera and I do a job with it and I will tell you if it has a problem, it doesn't take me long to find out, people who want to test this problem really need to be out with it and doing a wedding or a night club photography shoot, I am certain you will see the problem, no good looking down under your desk with it and saying " yep mines fine".

Im honestly so F£$%"£d off with Canon really, All I can see is major mistakes and half developed products all for a large selling price, its evident that they are more concerned about profit, it actually stinks of how bad it is, I really want to jump ship to Sony, its just a shame that ship is all about EVF displays and I don't think I can handle that yet, I have spent so much money with Canon, like all of us, and cant make stupid moves, I just wish they will identify this problem and make a fix, I have just seen the  Yongnuo YN565 flash and its cheap, but the first thing that pops into my head is "why on earth should I spend 100 pounds on a flash when I have one! a 430 EXII and it is fine!! I paid 200 pounds for that here in the UK, now I may have to spend another 100 to fix a problem on a £2,300 camera? I hope everyone can see my rage.

haha finally, this proves im not mad, pisses me off that no one replied to my message on here, telling everyone about this over a month ago.

So if your not sure when you are going to use them next, at least charge them to full?, instead of leaving them empty?

It makes you wonder how extensive the testing is at Canon,

 "Did you test the camera with a speedlite?"

Yes I agree,

This Thread and its responses have been fantastic, what I would also like to ask is Battery maintenance, In my current situation, I might not get a big job for maybe 2 months, lucky I teach to earn most of my money, and the small jobs here and there, but no need to worry over batteries and power every week, what is the best way to look after these type of batteries during the down times?

thanks again

Canon really need to address this issue, I'm hoping they get to see this complaint,
