New battery unboxing and set up

You can see the explanation in the R6 manual here:

The icon will never be green if the battery does not allow the camera to achieve the highest speed and a unless the battery is recognized as a LP-E6NH. If the battery is sold as a LP-E6NH but recognized as LP-E6N (because the camera can't achieve the highest speed) the icon will remain white.
 
Here is the screenshot from the manual

I do not see any mention to Electronic shooter.

Summarizing, if the battery is recognized as a LP-E6NH the icon will show up in Green, which means that your battery will allow the camera to achieve the highest fps possible in your camera. This is how it works in the R5 and R6, I sold my R7 so I do not know if it's the same in the R7 but I believe it's the same.
I see. In my very limited testing, the shutter kept going until I stopped. To test it, I took out the Llano battery and put the original Canon LP-EsNH battery, and the H+ did not change color or blink. This is on an R7 and it may be different on an R5.
 
I see. I checked the same for R7 and the manual does not mention color change or blinking. Here is the link:
Yeap, I checked the R7 manual and I could not find any mention to a color coding on that icon. I found the color coding for that option very interesting because I had few batteries that are not clearly saying that they are LP-E6NH even when they are reported with 2400 mAh or higher and those are not coming in Green which means that the camera will never achieve the higher fps speed possible.
