Looking for decent brands that work with the RP , but available from European stores.

Heard about Neewer but hard to find and reviews are mixed. Decoded battery would be preferred and not looking for battery grip, just pack of batteries and charger. Thanks

I bought an RP that came with an extra Hahnel battery, as did my G1XIII coincidentally. Works fine.
The LP-E12 Hahnels I have perform like Canon-brand batteries, but after 3 years to loose capacity faster than Canon ones. So I'm very happy them, the ones I bought 8 years ago still work.

I looked the price of the Hahnel batteries up here in the UK and I was surprised to see that they are pretty close to the genuine Canon ones in price. For my 'work' cameras I've always used genuine Canon batteries.

They were significantly cheaper than Canon ones when I bought them, but I've also changed to going Canon-only for batteries, so I haven't monitored the pricing.
