Summary: I got this battery to because the stock battery on my Sony camcorder conked out about 1.5 hours into my son's 2 hour football game. This one is a huge upgrade as far as time goes. The only minor complaint is that it is significantly heavier and larger (longer) than the stock battery which throws off the balance of the camera. If you're filming from a tripod this obviously isn't an issue. I would definitely recommend this battery.
Summary: I bought the Sony rechargeable camcorder battery for my granddaughter for Christmas. The battery that comes with the camcorder only runs for 45 minutes before requiring recharge. The Sony battery I purchased from Walmart will run between seven to eight hours before needed a recharge. Great for parties and picnics. That same battery at other name brand electronic stores were $50 to $100 more expensive. Thank you Walmart.
Summary: After shopping around..HH Greg, Best Buys, and online I was surprized to find the OEM Sony battery. It was priced far below any of the competitors, even Battery Plus. I am delighted with the storage capacity almost 12 hours, it is wonderful. No regrets great buy.
Summary: Having this battery relieves alot of stress of not knowing if you will have enough battery time to last for any event you plan to record. You can always keep the original battery as a backup. This was the cheapest I found this battery name brand from a trustworthy source and the shipping was prompt!
Summary: It is expensive, but it lasts me days. I purchased it to record me completing jobs I do for eventual use on a website. It lasts so long it is ridiculous. You will get over the price quickly. I also purchased the travel charger and it works well, no problems.
