Thread: 5DIII Battery Charging

    That's my experience, too, but on the charger I have now (LC-E6E) the flash rate doesn't change ! I've left it charging and eventually it powers off and the battery appears to be fully charged? This happened with both the Canon and Hahnel batteries.

    Have you tried the battery in the camera? Does it last as long?

    My apologies, as others have commented, on battery insertion the charger LED starts to flash amber once, and then as charging progresses the LED moves on to a two flash sequence(=50%), then the three flash sequence (=75%). Continuing until the battery reaches a full charge (100%) at which point the LED is in a steady state and changes colour to green.

    I'm using the LC-E6E with no problems. I suspect that the batteries u are using are not genuine canon and haven't been decoded so that they will work the same as a genuine canon battery. I use Baxxtar LPe6n battery and it charges fine but I have since gone on the using genuine canon batteries

    Had a charging quirk in the past. Originally had a 60D then added a 5D3. For some reason the 60D charger would not charge the battery that came with the 5D3.
