EOS R10 Not turning on with third party batteries

Hello, I recently bought two spare third party LP-E17 batteries for my EOS R10, but even though they are fully charged, when I put them inside my camera, the camera doesn't turn on at all, no light flashing or anything. What could be the problem and is there anything I can do to get it to work with them?

You're surprised a $9.00 charger doesn't work?  Thats not even worth returning.  I'd strongly suggest you not use this with your camera or its battery.  Thats pure junk.  Please don't risk your camera with it.

Greetings,

What brand are these batteries?  

The camera has protective circuitry, and specific power requirements to operate.  It might not work if the batteries don't meet these standards.  Its really best to use OEM batteries with your camera.  While I have used a 3rd party batteries successfully, I normally use OEM for best results.

Canon has been "chipping" some of their battery packs for several years now and third party packs in some battery styles won't charge in a Canon charger.  This has been a known issue with the LP-E17 for some time and it sounds like they may be now doing the same with camera bodies to require the use of only Canon batteries.

I would more likely accept the argument that it is Canon protecting the body from low quality batteries IF it weren't for them producing the LP-E6N/NH series which are some of the most unreliable batteries I have ever had the displeasure of using.  In reality, it is just an extension of what has been done with ink printers for years and a continuation of producer behavior that led to the original Magnuson-Moss act and the more recent "right to repair" legislation.

Yes those ones! I live in Europe, and unfortunatly those were the only LP-E17 batteries I could find, and I bought them because I wanted to avoid the situation from few days prior when I had a whole day shoot and had to charge my only battery twice. Fortunatly I now there are Canons own LP-E17 batteries available on amazon so I ordered them to avoid situations like these. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to help me out!
