Making Canon BP-827 to work with Canon XA40 Video Camera - a hack

https://youtu.be/66dwftgvBe8

There are a lot of discussions going on in various forums and social media platforms on compatible batteries with Canon XA11, Canon XA20, Canon XA40, etc.

The company recommended compatible ones' are Canon BP-820 and Canon BP-828.

Some of the discussions are on the compatibility of the older Canon BP-827 battery with Canon XA40, Canon XA30, Canon XA20, Canon XA11, etc.

The Canon company forum suggests that they are not compatible and they would not work.

For educational purposes, I have made a video that Canon BP-827 can be made to work with Canon XA40, Canon XA30, Canon XA20, Canon XA11, etc., with a small hack that you can do in 5 minutes.

In-fact, after modification, I have been using it without any major issues except that it does not show the battery charge level. Therefore, after fully charging it, I use it up to 3.5 hours and put it to charge again.
