Beware of Counterfeit Battery Packs  

Click to Share on Facebook

 
As more and more cameras are using rechargeable batteries the market for knock-off batteries has exploded.

It has come to my attention that counterfeiting of battery packs has become a serious problem for both manufacturers and consumers. A knock-off battery pack may save you money but, at the very least, may not carry a charge or last as long as an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) pack.  Worse yet, it could catch fire!

Here is a guide from the Camera Imaging and Products Association that will help you identify counterfeit battery packs.

Use the links below for information from specific camera manufacturers:

Casio
Canon
Fuji
Nikon
Panasonic
Pentax
Ricoh
Olympus
Sanyo
Sony
