I agree. I also found out that LP-E6N batteries behave just as Lp-E6NH in my R5 as far as continuous modes are concerned (Green High Speed plus, etc). I just got a few powerbanks to charge them in place (Using plural in the word powerbank is a funny story and destined maybe for a different thread....)I consider the long-term health of my camera, and I stick with original Canon. I don't mind using the older original Canon batteries in my R6 as backups for a couple of the new ones.
A very sound position to take. I've never felt secure charging batteries in the camera - even Canon will suffer the odd dud, on the law of probabilities, and I don't want it to be one that's in my camera at the time! I think if you have an option, you should always charge out of the camera.BTW, even though there is an option to do so, I do not charge batteries in the camera. My paranoia says heat is not a good thing for our devices and I don't want to heat up the battery while charging in the camera.
Thanks for that, most useful.This just came out this morning:
There’s nothing wrong with Canon’s most recent battery model’s capacity. There’s not much better about it either. Camnostic tested 18 of the brand new LP-E6NH, and an equal number of older batteries (LP-E6 and LP-E6N) over five months and about 150 full draw-downs and recharges. The upshot...camnostic.com
The upshot: the new LP-E6NH batteries don't give you much more capacity after initial wear (about 8 recharges). Benefit is all about communication with camera firmware in the new R5/R6.
There will be some third party batteries (older ones from 5+ years ago) added for comparison over next few weeks. -tig
