With a spare battery on hand, you're always ready to record that special scene or snap that perfect picture! The BP-511A lithium ion rechargeable can power select Canon digital cameras and camcorders when the original battery's drained.

Lithium ion batteries, unlike NiCad batteries, have no "memory effect" to reduce their capacity. This handy battery pack can even give you an extra hour of recording time when you use it with your Canon ZR40 or ZR45MC camcorder — up to 2 hours, 45 minutes with the LCD off. (Remember, battery life will vary with camcorder model, usage, temperature, and humidity.)

Details:

  • powers select Canon digital cameras and camcorders
  • rated at 7.4V, 1390mAh
  • 1-9/16"W x 2-3/16"H x 7/8"D
  • weight: 2.9 oz.
  • warranty: 30 days

Features

Lithium Ion: Unlike Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cad) batteries, Lithium Ion batteries don't have a "memory effect" which shortens their capacity. They can be partially charged and/or discharged without worry of shortened battery life.

Recommended Operating Temperature: The battery pack's maximum operating temperature range is 32-104 degrees (F). The optimal range is 50-86 degrees (F). At cold temperatures, performance will temporarily decline.
