Hi All
For Canon EOS 100D
I have 2 Chargers
1 says Canon Battery Charger
In 100 to 240V 50/60Hz
Out 8.4V 0.54A

The other says:
In Same as above
Out 8.4 v 600mA

Is there a Difference and which one would be better or are they even better ones?

As for the Batteries I have 2
Canon LP E 12
7.2 V 875mAh

Formax LP E 12
7.4 V 1200mAh

Which one would be better?
I am asking as both do not seem to charge very full. When put back into the Camera the bars show about 3/4 full but never completely full.Can it be that after a while Batteries do not charge full anymore.Any advice on which Charger and Battery to buy IF i need a new one?

Perform a full cycle once. Full cycle is more stressful for the li-ion battery but is needed some times to calibrate the battery.
