The eagle one imports(porta powers) batteries are listed as bp-945 batteries. I've read on other posts that they are the same batteries. In my opinion, I think the only difference is the amp hours, 5400 etc.

I hope that answers your question.
I love this site! btw

I just ordered a couple of 3700mAh BP-930's from www.sabahoceanic.com. Lets hope they arrive at the same time as my XM-2.

Those 941 batteries have sold out. If I order some, will they get more in and ship?
Also, how long do the 930 batteries last for?


Thanks

Battery Megasource, Inc.

I just got my BP-945 from Battery Megasource, Inc. I bought it via E-bay. Figured I could take a chance fro 45.97 (including shipping).

Again, it is a BP-945 with 5700 mAh at 7.4v.

It is currently charging.

I will post my findings tomor. night after I use it on a shoot.

Any idea the shelf life of these batteries or longevity under occasional use. How do they compare to OEM batteries?

Hi all.

I bought the bat. mentioned in my above post. I did a shoot and used the camera with LCD screen open and Canon's little Hot Shoe light. The shoot was about 2 hours long. I have 75% bat. life left if not more.

I ordered 2 more. We will see how it goes.

UK Here!!

I just placed an order with Fotosense, here in the UK, for a HL Lith-Ion 945 7.2v, 5550mAh - nearly 50% of the cost of the original I bought when I purchased the XM2!

Again, if this works out - should do - I'll order some more.


Grazie
