What is the difference between an OEM digital camera battery and DuracellDirect's digital camera batteries?
DuracellDirect provides replacement Canon digital camera batteries that will either meet or exceed OEM specifications.
Our aftermarket digital camera battery products come with a complete one year warranty, and have also attained various
safety certifications, including UL, CE, RoHS and FCC. Aftermarket digital camera batteries tend to have a better
build quality and technology, giving them a better advantage over OEM with longer battery life, durability, and safety.
What different types of Canon digital camera batteries are there?
Our aftermarket Canon digital camera batteries may be made from one of four types: Li-Ion (Lithium Ion), Li-Poly (Lithium Polymer), Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium), or NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride). Each battery type has distinct advantages over the other, such as longer life per charge, longer overall life cycle, weight, size, faster charge time, or stability. But, all four types are universally accepted for creating high quality replacement digital camera batteries.
Why do Canon digital camera batteries have different capacities?
The capacity of a Canon digital camera battery is measured in “mAh” (milliampere-hour). Many different factors affect
battery capacities: in particular, capacity size, voltage, wattage, and even the battery chemistry type. The more
electrolyte and electrode material there is in the digital camera battery cells, the larger the capacity will be if
the chemistry make up is the same. Larger digital camera battery capacities will always last longer than digital
camera batteries with lower battery capacities.
How long will my Canon digital camera battery last?
On average, your replacement Canon digital camera battery will last several hours on one full charge. However, it will
take one to three hours of recharging to achieve a full charge, with roughly 80% capacity being reached within the
first hour. The total lifespan of your Canon digital camera battery is around three years and can see over 500
discharge / charge cycles.
The use-per-charge and lifespan is also affected by certain conditions, such as the type of battery, the amount of use
it gets, and whether it is treated properly or abused.
How safe are Canon digital camera batteries and batteries in general? How do I take care
of my Canon battery?
DuracellDirect digital camera batteries (and other products such as chargers) are tested and attain a variety of safety
certifications before being sold to our customers. These battery and electronics safety certifications include UL, CE,
RoHS, and FCC.
Digital camera batteries are very durable, but can also be very fragile at the same time and can be destroyed under
certain conditions. Avoid leaving your digital camera battery in extreme conditions. This includes leaving your
digital camera battery in direct sunlight in a car, avoid moisture, rain and any sort of freezing temperature, and do
not drop or hit the digital camera battery. Never attempt to take apart your battery, as this can disrupt the cells,
short circuit the internals and cause a battery defect. Always watch for any leaks coming from the battery and dispose
of it properly when the digital camera battery has reached the end of its life capacity.
