Capacity test of aftermarket NB-6L batteries #2

I purchased a further two replacement batteries type NB-6L for a Canon camera from yet another supplier.

Above, the batteries are labelled 1000mAh. They appear to be well made externally, and fit charger and camera fine.

Note that these have different labeling to that shown in the eBay listing. It is naive to expect that the supplied item matches either pics or description, bait and switch is a standard Chinese technique.

The listing had a claim of premium quality of these batteries.

Measured capacity after three charge discharge cycles for the two batteries is 65% of rated capacity. Since this is the point at which I discard batteries, these batteries are for the rubbish tin.

If you don’t test after market batteries, you have no idea of whether you got what you paid for.
