Canon LP-E4 & LP-E4N batteries & chargers
Michael Stevens, Photographer, Assistant

->> So I just picked up a used Mark 3. Ordered a couple new batteries 'cause: 1. It only came with one. 2. I figure the battery it comes with is likely as old as the camera and is nearing, if not past, it's usable life.

Stick them all in the charger and they charge up fine. Then something got me reading somewhere and apparently the LC-E4 charger that came with the camera is supposed to ONLY charge the LP-E4 batteries which you can no longer get. We are NOT supposed to charge the LP-E4N batteries with this.

How much truth is there to this issue and/or what have I done to my new batteries? Not looking forward to having to pickup a new charger but I guess if I gotta...

Thanks,

Mike

->> Where did you read about not charging the new batteries with the old charger? The old charger will only charge the E4N's to about %90 capacity. But I have mixed and matched the old and new batteries with the old and new chargers without any problems.

->> A couple places but I only refound one link to this page:

http://consumer.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eo...

where it says at the bottom next to the accessories:

"Battery Charger LC-E4
*Please note: You cannot charge any batteries other than Battery Pack LP-E4 with this charger."
