Canon BP-828 Battery Pack Review

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've had great luck with 'after market' batteries for my Canon cameras in the past-much cheaper, and long-lasting. However, when I tried using one with the new XA30 the camera would not accept it. It actually showed up on the screen and then automatically shut off. I've been told one can use a separate charger and then the camera will operate with the battery, but possibly without showing battery data. I suppose it is also possible that Canon came up with a way to make their batteries exclusive to the newer cameras, but I decided it wasn't worth messing with and ordered their battery. I have found that it most definitely does not last as long as the after market batteries, in the same conditions unfortunately. Figures. If you're going to charge an exorbitant amount for your own battery, the least you could do is produce one that competes or exceeds those made by other companies!

Pros: Charges fine, works fine.

Cons: Does not last as long as after market equivalents.

A must buy

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This battery is a must buy in my opinion. I use this battery as my primary battery for my video camera and i use the stock smaller battery that came with my camera as a backup. It lasts long and worth it.

Pros: - Much Longer battery life than stock battery that came with my canon camcorder - Only a little bigger then the stock battery

Cons: - price


Hands-on research

Product Research


Compatibility: The Canon BP-828 rechargeable Lithium Ion battery is compatible with select Canon digital camcorders, including the Professional series.

Note: Before you use the battery pack for the first time, charge it in advance with your 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-828 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.

Terminal Cover: The terminal cover can be used to differentiate between charged and uncharged battery packs. The cover has a battery-shaped hole, and will fit the battery in either direction. When placed one way, the battery-shaped hole is filled, and in the other way, the hole is empty.


  • Voltage: 7.4 Volts DC

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

When it comes to digital cameras, video or still, after market batteries, even from names you trust, just don't hold up. Go with the OEM! [ LaVonne  Feb 27, 2018 ]
The BP-828 Battery has provided up to 6 hours of continuous use with my Cannon Vixia HF G20. After 4 years it is slowly losing its charge capacity but still useable for 4 hours. It has been a great battery for my uses and applications. [ LAWRENCE  Jan 30, 2018 ]
wanted longer record time for outdoor filming [ terry  Jul 14, 2017 ]
It is imperative to purchase a back-up battery. In my experience, while Canon branded batteries are more expensive, they have performed better than off brands. If your battery fails, you fail to capture the moment. I choose to pay a little more for peace of mind. [ Mark  Dec 09, 2015 ]
