    I'm looking for a second battery for my s400. Is the Canon battery an
    850mAh? I've only seen 770's here. I'm in Canada, and so far the price
    difference doesn't make it worth while going to a third party. Are there any
    brands i should look for?

    Why would one consider a $38 or a $44 Canon original when one can have a generic
    model with more power for $9 as reported here by a number of people. The
    generics seem to work fine. Not one person has reported a bad experience with
    one.

    Besides, the Canon brand is most likely made by one of the manufacturers who
    also make the generics, except they get to put the Canon name on it.

  4. If you look closer, you'll see that only one of those batteries are Canon,
    the others are "generic" (VidPro). Additionally, the AC-NB1LH is 1200 mah,
    as opposed to the standard Canon battery which is 840mah. I dispute your
    claim that there are ANY $9 batteries for the Canon S400 that are "more
    powerful" (I assume you mean "higher capacity"). A google group search on
    "Canon" and "battery" does not support your claim either.

    You will have to support your assertion, or it will fall into the category
    of internet noise.

    How about 1700mah for $30 shipped? (Actually 2 850mah for $30 on Ebay)
    Or a 950mah for $23 shipped? http://www.terascout.com/
    Seems like more bang for the buck!

  6. OK, now yer talkin'. That could be a good deal.

    But...

    I can't find any testimonials on Terascout, as opposed to BatteryBarn which
    seems to be pretty reputable. Also, I let my PayPal account lapse because of
    security concerns, and sending a check or money order seems so old
    fashioned. And I do have concerns because a google search on them returns
    nothing. Their web site has no address or phone number, or other identifying
    data. They must be pretty new. Anybody have experience with them? I mean,
    actually receive an order they placed?

    Well, you can dispute all you want. It was not just my claim, it was posted
    here a few days ago by someone else also.
    Learn how to use a search engine properly.
    OK.

    Why don't you just buy the Canon battery and pay full price. You'll sleep
    better.

    "Testimonials, google search returns nothing, no identifying data." You are
    going through a lot of trouble for 20 bucks. Loosen up already. You've already
    spent more than $40 in time alone trying to save $10.-

  9. Actually, I don't need an extra battery for my S400. My only interest was
    because it came up in another group discussion. It was my observation that
    Terascout smells like a fly-by-night operation. I wouldn't buy anything off
    the internet where I had no means of pre-purchase evaluation nor
    post-purchase protection, especially from some place with zero credentials.

    As to SterlingTek and their $9 batteries, I gotta concede. You were right.
    That's amazing.
