I have had good results with CTA batteries. I used them on my old 5D, 40D, and 20D.

Today I have two CTA batteries for my 5D mark II. I use the battery grip and mix one Canon and one CTA. The Canon battery reports the charge level, so when it is low, then I know the CTA is also low.

So far the pairs has been working fine, and it has saved me a few bucks, plus I have a second charger for the CTA batteries.
