Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.


Compatibility: The Canon BP-819 rechargeable Lithium Ion battery is compatible with select Canon Flash Memory and Hard Disk Drive digital camcorders.

Note: Before you use the battery pack for the first time, charge it in advance with your compatible camcorder's battery charger.

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.

Intelligent System: The BP-819 will allow you to obtain information on the remaining battery charge when used with compatible camcorders.

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.

More Power

Written By peodro, Southwest Wyoming on Saturday, October 08, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is a Canon brand product, twice the size of the battery that originally came with my HF S20, with twice the capacity. It of coarse takes longer to charge, but lasts twice as long when recording video. My timer said 2.5hrs on HD settings. I've only owned it for two weeks, so can't comment on it's lifespan.

Good battery

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Used this battery along with my new Canon HF S21 on a recent vacation. We
charged it once during the trip and used the camera many times. I am very
happy with its service and charge life. Chose not to purchase the larger battery
and am still comfortable with that decision.

I bought this battery so I could video Jr. High football games. I don't have to change batteries in the middle of the game. It does this easily with power to spare.
