Dear Surapon,

I have received today a package of 2 pieces of  3rd party (dste) LP-E12 and a DC 136 charger which I have purchased online from a Ebay vendor "Dstebattery". I offered $18 for the above and was accepted. Tracking number was provided with no extra cost. Warranty period is 2 years.
I bought from them before and their batteries are of decent quality. It happened once that one of their LP-E8 s became weak in less than a year's time. I emailed them and got a replacement in 2 weeks.
Just for your info.

THANKSSSSS, Dear Sama
Thanks for your infor., BUT another question " I bought from them before and their batteries are of decent quality "= What do you mean " Decent quality " ?=  Short life of the Batteries ? or Short Capacity to shoot , each Charge ?.
But 2 Years warranty is great, Not Many Recharged Batteries pass 2 years of continueing usage any ways.
Have a great Sunday.

i have my doubts about "xxx, 2000 mAh." that's almost double the capacity, which if they use standard technology (given the price, it's sure not some super technology) should be a battery double the size.  so, I would NOT believe these claims.

(edited NOT, forgot it)

Sorry for the late reply. By decent, I mean the batteries are of good quality. I have used their BP511A, LP E6, LP E8 and NB 10L which hold charges quite well. I have no statistical figure as to how many pics can be taken for a full charge ( I guess they are at least up to 80% of the original ones) and most of them survive after 2 years. I was particularly impressed when they sent me a replacement previously - refer to my post above.

As for the LP-E12, I will test it out and report back to you. I have charged one fully and will see how it performs in the coming 2 days.

Wow, excellent price for the battery and charger combo and you don't have to wait for  weeks to get the shipment. In Toronto, I waited 5 weeks to get it from the postal outlet. People in Hong Kong are shipping the battery stuff via Singapore/Sweden/Swiss to avoid certain airline restriction. BTW, I have tested 2 of mine and they lasted for about 210 to 225 shots respectively.

i have an ittou battery, says made in japan and says 5800mAh on it..... :P
dunno if it is really that but it does get around 400 or so shots out on full charge
leave the standard battery for dead. only issue is it doesnt eject very easily the spring
in the cam is not strong enough to push it out so need tweezers to pull it out
got it in singapore at a store I cant remember exactly how much it was but it was pretty cheap

Dear Friends.
I get 4 Halcyon LP-E12 Batteries =2200 mAH Lithium Ion, for 2 weeks and  I get more than 400 Photos per Charge---BUT, I turn off "the Continue AF"---That will save the energy, per one of our friend in CR. recommend.
Yes, I Have Wasabi ( 2 of them ) can give me 170-200 Photos, And 2 Canon batteries = 140-to 155 Photos per Battery.
Yes, I have 8 Batteries that good for me foe 1 dy shoots.
Have fun.
