Anyone had problems withbatteries?
I had a genuine canon battery fail on my last camera (40D), so with my current 7D, it wasn't hard to make the decision to try a non genuine battery. I purchased two batteries (LP-E6 equiv.) on ebay last year, and they worked well, untill i noticed one had gone completely flat.
I put it in for a charge, and after a few hours, I came back to see it continuously blinking. So not the one, two, three blinks, or the constant on, but a continuous blink. I put it in my camera, and it gave the camera absolutely no power. I put the other battery in my camera, and it turned on fine.
What do you think has happned here?
Complete cell failure or something? The "chip" has stuffed up?
Maybe I should return to buying genuine canon batteries. Though does anyone recommend any alternatives?
