Canon camera batteries are easily accessed both online and off. The main functions of a Canon camera battery is to power camera functions and to act as back-up source of power. There are a variety of batteries for Canon cameras which perform differently. There are also batteries for replacement that can be bought for much less than from an authorized Canon dealer. This type of replacement batteries should be avoided as they often have significantly lesser capacity than what they publicize and may even cause fire hazards in extreme cases. It is best to choose one that suits the camera model from a Canon store.Finding the perfect batteryEach Canon model comes with a battery specifically designed for that model. When the Canon camera battery or its charger is being replaced it should be compatible with that particular model. The Canon model or the battery part number will be helpful here. Canon offers a manufacturer’s warranty on every replacement battery purchased from them. Most of the digital cameras available in the market usually work with a standard battery located internally. Some Canon cameras use external batteries and then an extended one can be used when required. Professional photographers always carry a replacement battery. Even non-professionals find that an additional one is useful over long periods of time such as when on holiday as this ensures accurately captured memories. The need for an extra battery or a replacement one can be determined according to usage. Rechargeable batteries available onlineRechargeable Canon batteries are available online. It is easy to find the one that is best suited for a Canon model online by using a Battery Finder. All these batteries use Lithium-ion chemistry and come with different capacities. Now it is possible to get some types which are designed to the specifications of the original model of the camera and often these Canon camera batteries exceed the required specifications. They are also 100% compatible with the original chargers. The newly designed Canon camera batteries are longer lasting and have ultra high capacities. This ensures that these batteries avoid the “memory effect” problem that is commonly associated with digital camera rechargeable batteries and also the need to fully drain the battery prior to recharging each time can be dispensed with. Battery careThe Canon battery that is being used or stored should be in a cool, dry and clean environment. If it is stored the charge should be around 40%. If it is stored over time it may be required to be charged periodically. It is best to avoid discharging the battery frequently. Sometimes it will overheat while it is being discharged and in this event it should be taken out. Overcharging should also be avoided with a Canon battery. The battery of a new Canon camera has to be charged first and this is best done at room temperature. Charging should not be executed at a voltage higher than the Canon battery threshold voltage as this will damage the battery. Taking care of your camera battery will ensure more productive usage of it. If the camera battery has to be cleaned it should be done using a soft cloth that is not abrasive. Soda water can be poured over the connection to clean its surface. The Canon camera battery is the heart of the camera and keeping it healthy will give you better mileage from the camera. Finally, the Canon camera battery has to be compatible with the OEM battery. This type of battery is ideally suited for working in open air and will last longer. Purchasing a suitable Canon charger will prove to be a good investment for the user. The Canon camera battery being purchased has to fit the camera perfectly in order to be used at optimal level.
