It does recognize non-canon chipped batteries when the camera is first used with them.  Selecting OK works fine.  The battery level is shown on the top LCD, I don't know about other metrics.

This is what I get with my el-cheapo "chipped" batteries - I hit OK and haven't had any problems, and the battery life indication is still present.
