The LP-EL was designed with high-performance flash photography in mind. It’s capable of holding a lot of charge, and can deliver the large currents required for very fast recycling and burst shooting – something that the EL-1 excels in.
It’s quicker to change than a set of AA batteries and can be charged using our LC-E6 battery charger, which is supplied with many of the Canon EOS cameras. The EL-1 can show exactly how much charge is remaining, so you can change or recharge it at a time that most convenient – no nasty surprises!
When used in the EL-1, the LP-EL battery delivers up to 335 full-power discharges. It can be charged to full capacity in approx. 2 hours 10 minutes and has a life of at least 300 charge/discharge cycles.
