Camera battery


Great product. Arrived promptly. Adds to the longevity of the camera. Having a second one on hand.

Great life, poor features


Don't get me wrong, this battery lasts a while - the issue I have is that there is no "InfoLithium" feature like on the previous battery series that I have used (G series), nor does Sony make a model that does.

First class


Purchased as a spare and is really useful when original battery is low on charge. A great protective case to avoid damage to the terminals.

competent charger


The power prongs fold, so this is a true travel charger. I have several of the tiny chargers styled as battery cases, and they work well, but are slow.

Should be included with camera!


Kind of bulky but a must for both home and travel use.

Great charge


The battery charges in just a couple of hours and lasts a long time in the camera. I usually turn the camera off between groups of shots.
