1 STAR IS WAY TOO MUCH!

David Hurwitz "DaveH", Amazon
15 May 2013
  • Summary: This particular "Sony" battery came with a partially peeled label and wouldn't fit. After I fixed that problem, I found that the battery only provides half as much charge as the Sony battery that came with my camera. I'm pretty certain that this battery is a counterfeit and Amazon should immediately investigate the vendor. I can't return it until I get back from my vacation but it's the first thing I will do when I'm home.

Doesn't hold a charge for more than 5 minutes.

Kenneth Roehr, Amazon
12 May 2013
  • Summary: Doesn't hold a charge for more than 5 minutes. After that, it takes upwards of 3 days to charge enough just to get one bar of battery life, enough to turn on, then die off.

I got a Dud

SteelCrash2209, Amazon
17 April 2013
  • Summary: I ordered this battery for my wife's camera to replace the original battery as it would no longer hold a charge. The new battery arrived and I charged it. Placed the new battery (fully charged) into the camera and took less than 10 pictures. Boom! Battery dies. Re-charged battery and tried again. Same results. Battery is junk.

Works as advertised

Mary June, Amazon
20 November 2012
  • Summary: I tried to buy a battery for my DSC-W150 Sony Camera at Batteries Plus, but their generic battery would not work in the camera, it gave a warning about a non-approved battery and shut down immediately. This battery is a genuine Sony Battery, and it works perfectly. Thanks!

100 % Pure Sony - Not a Flukey Flake, Spoof, Imitation, Spin-Off!

Professor Geek "Insanity Not Required Will Train", Amazon
30 October 2012
  • Summary: Genuine Sony Product in a genuine Sony package; with everything on the package being genuine Sony including the replacement battery being Genuine Sony. If your Cybershot Camera original Lithium Cell Sony Cell battery is dying; yes, there is a slight difference as this is a newer version on the back but it is GENUINE SONY - the only difference is that the old (if you have an older Cybershot like I do) or older version of the this Lithium Cell Battery on the back side is...

Not Compatible

Jim, Amazon
17 October 2012
  • Summary: Bought these for an upcoming work trip, I charged them and put them in my camera and received a "use with compatible batteries" message on my camera. They look the same as my original batteries and the labels are identical, so not sure why it does not work.

cheap knock off

Jmar, Amazon
22 July 2012
  • Summary: This battery is either refurbished or simply a cheap SONY knock off as it is not able to retain charge. At first I thought it would get better after a few charge - discharge cycles, but after several cycles it is still not able to retain charge. The product arrives in a zip-lock bag. I would not recommend buying this product.

Not as good as the original

L. Wright "Fair share", Amazon
18 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought this as an extra battery and made sure I ordered the same exact brand as my original, thinking it would be "the original" but to my surprise, the charge does not hold as much as the real original one. It helps as a back up, but it is not the same quality.
