Any risk in using non-Canon batteries for 7D?
Aug 8, 2010

I could use a spare battery for my 7D but I'm wondering if there's any risk in going for the cheaper brands. Can anyone elaborate on this? Also, on Ebay (mainly Hong Kong) I see so-called 'genuine' Canon batteries being sold for about 30 dollars. Are these just fakes?
