Do 3rd Party or Generic Batteries charge in the camcorder


Just wanted to confirm if generic batteries charge in the camera or do I have to buy a seperate charger for it


Rising Star

As long as they use the Inteligence System, the answer is yes. I got mine from vhbw-tec on Ebay.

EOS C100 mk2 - Atomos Ninja 2 - Zoom H2n - Dell 8700 i7-4790 3.6Ghz, 24GB Ram, Win 10, Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB - DaVinci Resolve Studio 18.5B - Blackmagic Speed Editor - Presonus Faderport 1

What model number did you get?

I have used Watson batteries and they work well.  They will charge on the camcorder.  

Watson BP-808

Watson BP-819

Watson BP-827


Wasabi is another brand I use and trust.

These batteries seem to be for Canon HF S20. Do they fit in the Canon HF G40?

Those work for the HF-G20.  The Watson ones for the G40 are the BP-820 and BP-828.
