Hands-on research

Product Research


Compatibility: The Canon BP-718 rechargeable Lithium Ion battery is compatible with select Canon Flash Memory digital camcorders, including the HF-M and HF-R series.

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: When using the BP-718 with Canon digital camcorders compatible with the Intelligent System, the camcorder will display the remaining battery charge as a percentage, plus the remaining recording time.

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