If you own a Canon G7x Mark II, you may have experienced some issues with battery life, especially when doing any sort of video recording. To combat this problem, some people have turned to aftermarket batteries. However, there have been complaints that these batteries aren’t recognized by the camera or result in error messages.

In this post, we’ll take a closer look at an aftermarket battery and see if it works with the Canon G7x Mark II.

The battery in question is the Envy-13L, which claims to have a higher capacity than the Canon battery. Both batteries are lithium-ion and 3.6 volts, which is the most important part to get right. Upon closer inspection, the aftermarket battery looks pretty similar to the Canon battery in terms of fit and finish, with the exception of some markings and a slightly slimmer profile.

To test the battery, we plugged it into the camera and the 120-volt power source. It started charging right away, indicating that the battery does work with the Canon G7x Mark II. We also tested another aftermarket battery, the D’Este Envy-13L, which also worked with the camera.

It’s worth noting that some aftermarket batteries need to be updated with the latest firmware in order to work with newer cameras. However, since the Canon G7x Mark II has been on the market for over a year, it’s likely that most aftermarket batteries have been updated to work with it.

Overall, it looks like you can safely buy replacement lithium-ion batteries for your Canon G7x Mark II without having to pay the Canon tax of $70-$80 per battery. Just be sure to do your research and choose a reputable brand.
