Big Mike’s BP-827 – Five Stars

These batteries last a long time, but my canon xa10 can’t read the battery life, so they are impractical for shooting. I use these batteries to power the camera when it is downloading footage, playing back on a tv and other desktop related activities. Wish they would’ve said in the description that the camera can’t read the battery life for these.

Use either in the car or at home.

Just what i needed and everything came just as i ordered.

The batteries work, but be aware that the canon vixia hf g20, and perhaps other canon products, you will get a ‘cannot communicate with the battery/use the battery anyway’ message when starting up. The correct answer is yes, but you will have a red error message icon on the screen rather than a display of remaining battery life. Otoh, i’m getting something like 6 hours of camera use per charge, which is pretty amazing.

Got the camera used as a gift with chatger. This one works just fine and charges fast.

  • better charging system than came with the Canon camera
  • Cheaper than OEM, works but has issue.
  • Great charger with batteries

I was so happy to find a cheaper replacement charger for both my canon rebel t3 dslr and my (easily 10 year old) canon vixia hn 20 camcorder.

I misplaced my charger for my canon camera and ordered this just in time for my vacation. It worked perfectly, just like my original charger plus it came with two new batteries.

Works awesome as a fraction of the price of oem batteries.

I had just bought the bp-827 batteries for back-ups for when i’m on vacation soon. Batteries seem well built, and the charger works great. So far the only issue is the camera (canon vixia hf g20) won’t communicate with the battery, a warning sign comes up on start-up and asks if you want to continue with the battery, pressing yes the camera starts up and works fine, except the power indicator has a ‘?’.I will update this post as i use the batteries and see if there’s any other issues.

I needed extra batteries for my canon vixia hfm41 video camera. I’m tired of having to find the stinkin plug that powers it via a cord. Supposedly charges it tho i have reason to believe that it doesn’t charge very well. I unplugged the camera from said corded power source, went to a shoot and nothing. With these batteries and the plug-into-the-wall charger, it charges the battery and gives me a green light when it’s complete.
