Re: Spare Battery Recommendation...

Batteries are just batteries, it's not like they contain anything high tech or special. There is no reason to believe Canon makes better batteries than anyone else. In fact, there are plenty of non-Canon batteries that perform better than Canon's.

In fact all these batteries may even have been made in the exact same factory by the exact same worker; the Canon ones just got branded with the Canon name before it left production line.

That being said, Canon probably demands more stringent QA process than some cheap no-brand batteries. So your chance of getting a lousy battery is higher when buying non-brand than buying from Canon, but in the vast majority of cases, you will get a good battery and it should function about the same as a Canon one.
