Not worth it on my own experience. I bought such one with excellent reviews in Amazon for my 60D (the same as in 5D3/5D2/7D). It worked very well in first year but then noticeably ran out quicker than Canon OEM one after one year's usage (and I used them in turn evenly). So initially it may save you half cost but eventually not really if you want to span to 3 years or longer. I bought several cheap 3rd party batteries for my 5Dc and they are not in good shape after two years while original Canon OEM batter still runs much better after about 6 years although it also shows deterioration.
