Quick test of the Watson LP-E6 Li-ion battery that fits in the 5D3 5D2, 70D, 60D, 7D.
Watson LP-E6: around $35 so about half the price. 1750mAh, new, 1 hour and 9 minutes
Canon LP-E6: around $60, 1800mAh, 1 year old, 1 hour and 28 minutes
The Watson must have a chip inside of it because you can register it within the 5D3 and you can track it’s performance.
Canon says in the manual you can recharge whenever you like, Watson says to recharge only when it is dead. So I have a feeling that Watson has less recharge cycles than the Canon does.
I will check back in about a year to see what the performance is like.
