Canon T6i BG-E18 battery & grip question

Hey All

I am about to pull the trigger and buy the Rebel T6i to replace my XSI

I was wondering what is the deal with using 3rd party generic batteries such as Wasabi

in this camera ??

I have heard that it only works with OEM Canon LP-E17 ones or if using "generic ones"

you get error messages and no indication of current battery level it is like they are forcing us to pay $60 per battery..with no other option

they are not "decoded"....also is this true for the BG-E18 Battery Grip as well ??

I had this same issue with the batteries for my 5DMK3 and found Wasabi

batteries to work perfectly ??

any advise would be most appreciated and helpful

Thanks in advance....Stu

Canon EOS Rebel T6i (EOS 750D / Kiss X8i)
