We have mentioned how the Canon XA10 camera is one of the most versatile camcorders around. It does not outperform a highly expensive pro camcorder but it has enough features for you to make your first film. The Canon XA20 offers a better set of features. Unfortunately, your old XA10 batteries may not work with this new camcorder. The good news is you can still get decent Canon XA20 batteries for your long shooting sessions:
Watson Duo LCD Charger: charges 2 BP-800 batteries at the same time and saves you time. It is compatible with BP-808, BP-809, BP-819, BP-820, BP-827, and BP-828.
Kapaxen BP-828 Intelligent Battery Pack: Canon batteries are not always cheap. This battery can power up your camcorder. It has 2900 mAh capacity and can be charged by Canon original charger or AC power adapter. It does not cost a ton which is nice.
Wasabi Power Battery for Canon BP-828: I have been using Wasabi batteries for my own cameras. They are not perfect but very affordable. This one has 2670mAh capacity.
You can always buy your batteries from Canon but they won’t be cheap. These XA20 battery kits save you money and make your life easier.
