Surely then they backed this up with objective testing, broken down by manufacturer...

I past on info that was given to me "in good faith" make of it what you will.

Subjective information with no facts to back it up  I expect more from an institution of higher learning.

In the meantime my own real world experience disputes this for at least 1 brand of 3rd party

Post the name of your 3rd party battery and if I ever have to buy one I will try it.

I've mentioned it several times in the thread - SterlingTek.  I used their BP-511 equivalents on my Canon xxD bodies, and now their LP-E6 equivalents in my 7D & 70d.
