These cheap batteries keep calling my name ... but I resist..waiting for more feedback from users here to report on accurate battery level display and total shot count.  Also would like to hear about how hot the battery gets when fully charged...and perhaps how hot it gets after a good shoot.

As mentioned previously there is a good reason usually why they are cheap.  I am willing to live with short battery life for such a price but not really interested if it takes the camera with it.

. Every 20-30 shots, I open and remove the Battery from the Chamber, to check the Temperature of Battery, No, From my hand, The Battery Temperature do not get Warmer---Yes, I am afraid that this HALCYON battery might blow up my $ 299 US Dollar EOS-M----Sorry, My lovely EOS-M still work Fine and my fingers still intact..

Now To night, I remove the Battery and Recharge It, Next 2 Hours---And See, What will happend to my Cheapo Battery next.

PS, I see your Name " tpatana" Look like Thai Name, Are  you live in Thailand ?--Yes, I am Thai People too.

I wish, that would be cool. Some time long long time ago in the far away galaxy, I was looking to register www.patana.com for myself, but at the point it was registered for a school in Bangkok, called "Patana school" I think.

I admit nothing.

I'm from Finland myself. And I love panang curry.

Thankssss, Dear Friend tpatana.

Yes, Dear friend fotorex.
Past two weeks, I shoot EOS-M with  cheap and Great Chinese made Batteries, more than 1500 Photos---Every thing in front of me---Just Shoot and Shoot.
I report that :
Canon LP-E12 7.2 V 875 mAh. ( I have 2 of Them ) = $ 45 US Dollars/ Each  = 150 to 180 Photos per Full Charged @ 2 Hours.
Wasabi  7.2 V, 1100 mAh ( I have 2 of Them) =  $ 12 US Dollars/ Each = 250-275 Photos per Full Charge @ 2 Hours.
Halcyon  7.2V, 2200 mAh ( I have 4 of them) = $ 9.50 US Dollars/ Each = 350 t0 425 Photos per Charge @ 2 Hours ( Sorry Past 3-5 days = Super Cold in my Home town = Below freezing Point)

BIG BUT----Both Wasabi batteries and Halcyon Batteries are not show the Power ( Green Color Symbol---Just White and Black Icon) on the Battery Icon in the Camera LCD---When Out of Power, Just shut off the Camera's Power----Yes, That is the Inconvenience, But , Not my Problem, Because I  alway check, How many Photos that I shoot from the Starting Point, and have 3-4 spare batteries ready to roll.
Have a great Weekend.

Thank you dear Surapon,

it really does not seem to be a problem that the real power consumption is not displayed correctly on the LCD when one
1. has enough spare batteries with him/her
2. is able to take up to 2.5 times more photos with one charge cycle than with the OEM batterie and keep the starpoint of picture count in mind when attached the batterie.

And at that price ($9.50 each batterie) you can easily buy 4 of them for the price of one OEM batterie.

Frank

Hi khun Surapon, tell me, why do thai girls want to look like Western girls? I never understood that! Haha
Thai beaty ideal is so Western!

Thank you for posting about the third-party batteries, do you know if they are also made for canon 5dii, 5diii or 7d? Halcyon is an American company, but it has a different logo, they make computers. I can't find a Chinese company called Halcyon (sounds more Korean!) and there is no Chinese text in the pictures you posted. Where can I find these batteries? On Amazon? Oh, I checked Amazon, they also have batteries for 5d ii and 5d and 7d! Great!

www.amazon.com/Halcyon-Lithium-Replacement-Battery-Charger/dp/B00GS93FEK/?ie=UTF8&qid=1391264874&keywords=halcyon+5d
http://www.amazon.com/Macro-Close-Halcyon-Batteries-Bundle/dp/B00ENHL2X0/?ie=UTF8&qid=1391264892&keywords=halcyon+7d

Has anyone tested these for the 5-series or 7d? Do they work well? Are they safe? Are they reliable?

I almost forgot! alibaba is not the most reliable place, many companies of bad repute deal on alibaba... There are better websites to buy from China but you have to read Chinese or use a translator!

Sawat dee kaa, khun Surapon, mai pen thai khon! Pen yureethia... Yes, I noticed the aegyosal on the girls above, ha ha! Korean influence :)

I have found different branded 3rd party batteries near me, but I don't know about those brands... They are all different brands, very hard to know if they are good or not! But maybe I will order some and try them :)

Are they all safe? So they don't explode in the camera or anything? If they're safe then maybe I can try all the different ones!

Have a nice weeked as well, khun Surapon!

Dear Surapon, thanks for posting this. I enjoy reading the stuffyou share here, lot of new thinking and testing out and building new gear. Please keep doing it.

I've been thinking about you as there is a pink car in my street, I have yet to take a picture of it, but I will eventually and post it here for you as I remember your and Rienzphoto's discussion about it  :D Everytime I come to Bangkok my daughters always looks for the pink taxis. When we score and get to ride in one, the day is made.
