Canon BP-828 Battery Pack Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
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
- Capacity: 2670 mAh

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 ]
