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.)
