You do get an error message but you can just cancel that message out and move on with taking photos, the camera and grip function fine with the 3rd party batteries.

One problem is the battery level indicator does not function, if that was a big deal to you(it is to me) than you'll need the canon batteries.

I use the 3rd party batteries as back ups.

I use my 600d with a no name battery grip and Chinese batteries and though the 600d gives no errors it is true the battery level indicator does not work so I always make sure I have 2 extra batteries or 6 AA penlights and the adapter so i don't have an unexpected blackout.
