The OEM Canon LPE6 Battery is the best. They also hold their charge longer than most third party batteries. A number of BMPCC4K users have tried a variety of LPE6, and have come bsckmtomthrnLEM batteries as being the best option.

I was hoping for more than 1865mAh, The ikan IBC-E6+ Lithium-Ion Battery Pack claims 2950mAh, anyone try this? Does it last longer?

I'm no fan of the prices that manufacturers charge for their batteries, but I've come to the realisation that only OEM batteries truly provide reliability, longevity and safety. Many third party manufacturers claim that their batteries have higher capacity, but on investigation it's found to be far from true.

Just Google 'third party battery capacity claims' and you'll find plenty of example to make you think twice.

What the others have said is unfortunately true. The "other" batteries that claim very high mah don't last as long as the OEM Canon brand ones that claim 1865mah.

The best solution for a long lasting battery is a Vmount battery with DTAP into the 12v input of the camera.
