View Full Version : Canon G6 Batteries

Just Bought Canon Powershot G6 and looking for additional battery. The Canon G6 has a BP-511A. Thompson Distributing sells a BP-511. I called them just to make sure they were the same. They gave me the phone number of the battery company. So I called them--they guaranteed the battery (BP-511) would work in the camera but NOT the charger, although they thought it would.

Looked at the Digital Foto Club website--they have a BP-511--7.4 volts, 1500mah for $29.85. to complicate things they also have a BP-511A which is 7.4 volts and 1390 mah for almost twice as much, $54.85.

Question--are the BP-511 and the BP-511A batteries interchangeable in the camera and the charger??
