CKS is still being judged by the masses


Default when it comes to battery......

for notebooks, camcorders, cell phones, etc, is there a lot of differences between generic and genuine?

generic is so much cheaper sometimes.....

It depends on a lot of things.... in some cases there is no difference, in some cases the generic is significantly worse...

I had a friend who got a generic cell phone battery for his aging phone and it did great. The same friend then got a generic power adapter for his laptop (not a battery, but generic and power related) which doesn't charge the battery, but only runs the computer when attached.

If the stock genuine battery is a good one, there's a decent chance a generic won't be as good, but if there is nothing outstanding about it, then a generic could be the same quality.

is Energizer a good alternative?

Thinking about buying it to replace the Canon battery which comes with the camcorder.
