    Canon 1DX Battery

    Hi Everyone,

    I have been using 2 Canon LP-E4N batteries for 6 years and they start to show their age. I want to get new batteries for my 1DX as I plan to continue to use it as long as I can. I want to get the new LP-E19 that the 1DX Mark II uses but my understanding is it cannot be charged with the old 1DX LC-E4N charger. Can someone with personal experience confirm this? The price for the new LC-E19 charger is $350. Brand new LP-E4N are still being sold on B&H but lithium ion cells have a shelf life and I donít know how long B&H has had these. I donít mind using aftermarket batteries as long as they can be charged with my LC-E4N charger and my 1DX can read it.

    Thank you!
    Nate

    From what i have read you will nee the new charger for the new battery.
    "The new LP-E19 battery pack is a 2700 mAH device running at 10.8 volts. In addition to the LP-E19, the EOS-1D X is also compatible with existing Canon LP-E4N and LP-E4 battery packs; However, maximum continuous shooting speeds are reduced to 12 fps through the viewfinder and 14 fps with the mirror locked up when using the older batteries (versus 14 fps and 16 fps respectively using the LP-E19). Users can charge LPE-4, LP-E4N and LP-E19 battery packs on the new Battery Charger LC-E19. However, LP-E19 battery packs cannot be charged on Battery Charger LC-E4 or LC-E4N."

    I'm not sure where you got that but it has to be referring to the 1DX II. The 1DX is only capable of 12 and 14 fps, the 1DX II does exactly as you said and reduces its frame rate by 2 fps.
