    Yep, there's lots. Most shops will sell them.

    Thanks all.
    It appears that the 20D can use the same battery that use by the 10D
    (BP511) and a few other models which is good as I have a couples for
    my 10D at the moment, but did not realise it until I take a closer
    look that it can use the BP511.

    Thanks again.

  6. Be careful.
    The 20D takes a BP511a battery.
    Don't mix the two if you have a grip.
    Annyway, if you have a grip, you can use AA rechargable cells.

    Douglas,
    Thanks for the warning... I thought the spec. says that I can use the
    BP511 also? DO you mean do not use both together when using the
    vertical Grip?

  8. That's right. Use either pair but don't mix them.

  9. Incidently Photo Continental in Brisbane have no genuine batteries at
    half Canon's price if you need them.

    You can use either the BP511 or the BP511A. The only difference between
    them is battery capacity. BP511 = 1100 mAh, BP511A = 1390 mAh.

  11. Why can't you mix them in the grip?

  15. From TFM.....

    "different types of battery packs (such as BP-511 or BP-511A) can be used
    without any problems."

    I think you should read the manual you knob. Because it says precisely this:

    "Two charging batteries or different types of battery packs (such as BP-511 or
    BP-511A) can be used without any problems."

    I guess that happens when you just make stuff up.
