chemistry types are universally compatible for each specific model.
Why do Canon camcorder batteries have different capacities?
Each camcorder battery will have a different capacity and is measured in “mAh” (milliampere-hour). There are different
factors that will affect battery capacities, which include capacity size, voltage, wattage, and battery chemistry type.

battery cells. Larger camcorder battery capacities for your Canon video camera will always last longer than a battery
with lower capacity.
