Aftermarket BP-511 Batteries
Oct 10, 2007

What kinds of experiences have you Guys out there had through the years when using inexpensive third party, aftermarket batteries in your "whatever Ds"?

I bought some of these from Sterling Tek in 2003 for my then 10D and they seemed to be OK for a while, but soon started giving me less & less run time. Is this the catch and there really is a reason why the Canon batteries cost an arm and leg? Has anyone found a quality inexpensive aftermarket battery or does "quality" and "inexpensive" never go together in the same sentence?
