The answers are correct from the camera perspective they are the same, the N just last longer. On chargers it more complicated you need a new charger to charge the LP E6N, which will also charge the older batteries. I have a 7D mark II, which works fine with all the batteries. Its simply about how frequently you need change batteries
I found that my non canon LP-E6 batteries became damaged and unchargeable after switching charger. Both worked fine up until the moment the EP-6N charger broke them. They are dot photo. I imagine its the higher charging rate from the charger and brand as opposed to higher spec originals, but had to replace them with genuine canon LP-E6N's replacements as the after market hasn't caught up yet.
This is basically where my confusion is. I've seen people say both that you do and don't need a new charger for the new battery.
Canon says, "Can be charged with the LC-E6 or LC-E6E battery chargers." (Source: http://shop.usa.canon.com/shop/en/catalog/batteries-and-chargers/eos-batteries-chargers-grips/battery-pack-lp-e6n)
What's the difference between the LC-E6 and the LC-E6E? I'm not seeing it listed on the USA Canon site for some reason.
Thanks to all so far for the help.
7Dii the Third is looking a lot better
Testing my 3rd 7Dii body
Looks like this one works well
It looks leagues better than the other two. I'm still trying to figure out the AF system though
