Bought an extra LP-E6 to go in my Canon grip when I bought the 7D and then bought a pair of unchipped batteries which came with their own included charger (if you use the Canon one it'll shut down the clones) which cost me 1/3rd of a one official LP-E6! And work just as well - easily lasting as long (but no info displayed in lcd).

Then bought a pair of chipped clones which, again, last as long as the official ones (and cost the same as the unchipped) - and I can use either charger

i have a hahnel that pairs with a geniune Canon battery in the battery grip. Whilst i think there may be a difference, it is really negligable - never under 1600 shoots even in the coldest of weather and high AF operation.

Best i've had is just over 2000 shots...

I have a whole bunch of Pearstone batteries for the 5Dii and 7D, as well as some for my HV30 from B+H. I can't tell the difference between the Pearstones and Canon LP-E6s. Never once had a problem.

I got a Pearstone one and it's worked great. Haven't used it heavily, but haven't noticed a difference. I also bought their charger and it works with all of my batteries. Cool feature, it also has a car adapter alongside the flip-out AC plug. Didn't know that, but awesome perk when I got it!
