    Hi all,

    Just got my Canon Powershot G7 delivered today (to replace my partly dead A70) :)
    Obviously not sure what the life of the standard battery is, however I'd like to get a 2nd one for reserve.

    Doing a search for the NB-2LH on google gets you quite a number of cheap "alternatives". (with the canon official one looking like it's ~£35).

    Any recommendations on whether any of the alternatives (and maybe with a higher mAH) are worthwhile (considering they cost less too), or is it only worth going for the real mccoy from canon?

    Cheers

    That's the same one that goes in the 350D. I use 3rd party ones in my 350D battery grip with no problems and I have to say the higher charge capacity is noticable! There really aren't any downsides about buying these over the canon ones.

    I got mine off a certain scotsman, fyi.
