    I'm about to buy a Canon 10d and I'm looking to buy
    an extra battery. The Canon BP-511 is 1100mAh and
    I'm looking into others with higher capacity. One is
    the Power2000 BP511 rated at 1500mAh.

    The question is can it (and others) be charged on
    the Canon charger?

    TIA

    Yes you can - though I've read that if you use the dual battery grip, it's
    recommended that you use the same capacity for both . . .

    Thanks for the info. The grip is on my "maybe" list that I'll determine
    after I get some experience on the camera.

    Also, I'm wondering what batteries people have have success with.

    At B&H Power2000 BP511 is about $35. The Canon BP511 is about $50.

    They work just fine...and far outlast the 1100 Canons.
    I've got three Canons and five Power2000s.

    Guess which ones I reach for if they're all charged and ready?
    (Hint: It ain't Canon!)

    I have 2 Canon and 2 Power 2000 batteries, all work but the Power 2000
    batteries are better and cheaper.

    No problem on the charger, but I never use my Canon charger. I usually use
    my Lenmar charger because it’s faster. I keep my Power 2000 charger in my
    camera bag with its 12V lead, because it’s small and light and works in the
    car.

    Whatever batteries you get they will be pretty useless after a couple of
    years, batteries are a consumable item and will need to be replaced.
    Because of this I see no reason to waste money on the Canon batteries, I
    prefer better cheaper alternatives.

    cheers bruce

    over here in the UK i've noticed a website that does cloned Li-on's and I
    wonder if there are broad similarities in power output/performance too?

    I mean, why spend more than I have to?

    Ooops - I should have read this before posting my earlier posting

    cheers Mark - I head that Li-opns are good for 500 charges before dropping
    off

    Your post made me think about fast chargers. I found the following of interest:

    Ouch, a set of 2300mah AAs costs about $13.[/QUOTE]

    7.4 volt (Canon/Power2000) vs. 1.2 volt (AA)?

    -And you think these two types are even remotely comparable?

    You have a very...um...interesting...um...mental configuration.
