NB-5L ----Good battery
Strengths: Long lasting
I like to keep a spare battery for my DC, especially on trips. I prefer a battery from the original manufacturer, which has the original good quality. Off-brand replacements are usually one grade worse.

Genuine Canon SD800 battery pack NB-5L review
Strengths: Genuine Canon battery; holds charge for very long time if not used, when used it holds for at least 250 pictures with flash and LCD screen on; Included protection cap for battery when it is not used.
I highly recommend to purchase a second battery for your camera, I am taking mine Canon SD800 underwater (with a underwater housing WP-DC9, sold separately), so I am prepared for it with - 2 memory cards (4 GB each and 2 genuine Canon battery packs). These are not AA batteries that you can buy on the go, get additional pack for the great shots to come. Have fun taking great looking photos!

Impressively long-lasting battery for SD700 IS, SD800 IS Canon Powershots
Strengths: Charge does not take too long (+/- 2hrs); lasts forever-long in my SD800 IS; none-too-big for storage in appropriate camera case or bag.
Weakness: Somewhat expensive compared to regular alkaline batteries; no clear idea from packaging about length of warranty or extent of its coverage.
Even though people generally tend to complain about proprietary batteries, I've found that in this case the NB-5L is a pretty good deal, assuming you can purchase it in the mid-to-low $30 range. For light usage, I've had the battery last a week with no downtime (and I charged it only then because I had some events to shoot and not because the camera was indicating "low battery"). I actually own...

Even though people generally tend to complain about proprietary batteries, I've found that in this case the NB-5L is a pretty good deal, assuming you can purchase it in the mid-to-low $30 range. For light usage, I've had the battery last a week with no downtime (and I charged it only then because I had some events to shoot and not because the camera was indicating "low battery"). I actually own two of these little guys and plan on employing a "swap-and-charge" tactic during a trip to Paris in the coming months. Ultimately, the NB-5L is lightweight, it charges quickly for this type of battery, and it lasts much longer than I expected considering my level of camera usage. Did it cost? Certainly, but it's a fixed and one-time price to pay. Would endlessly inserting two AA batteries after every twenty shots cost less? To me, it is just not worth the continuing expense.

Strengths: Very compact compared to my last Canon camera. It took a charge quickly and works longer than I expected.
Weakness: None that I have found yet.
I am about to go on a big trip and wanted to have a backup battery for my new camera so there would be no battery issues. I went with a genuine Canon battery even though it was more expensive because the generic battery I had with my last camera didn't function that well.
