Bought an aftermarket battery for my 5D mkII about 6 months ago. Label on it says CTA. I never used it much. Last night I charged it and nothing, camera would show a dead battery. I mainly purchased it as a backup. I will try charging it again but I am not hopeful.
Beware if you have one of these.


You are lucky, I bought a used Sony digital camera with a aftermarket li-on battery that had expanded until it would not come out of the camera. I spent a hour carefully drilling it dozens of times until I could take it out in pieces. Then, I bought a authentic one.

Remember, these aftermarket batteries are made by the country that let dairy producers cheat on baby's milk. Do you think they care about your camera battery?
