Canon DSLR’s offer a way to monitor your battery. A feature unknown to many. It is a simple but effective system. It lets you know whether the battery requires to be replaced. It also provides the number of shots taken since the battery was inserted.

Canon DSLR Battery Monitor

To access this feature, simply go under the menu option “Battery Info” on your Canon DSLR. Once within, you will be able to see the battery inserted along-with shots taken and its health. Now press ‘Info’ & then select register. Now your battery will be registered and you can monitor it time and again. This way you can register multiple batteries. This also helps when you swap batteries with someone and are unable to identify the two, as the batteries are registered by the system via their unique serial number. This might not work if you are using third party batteries which do not have the smart chip within. I always recommend to use original spares from the manufacturer.
