Excerpt: I am 60 years old and if there is one thing I have learned is do not attempt to save $20 one a rechargable battery as you wont save a dime. These batteries get hot and without the proper amount of casing or insulation they can weaken the casing causing unreparable damage to the camera.
Excerpt: This is an excellent battery which recharges veryquickly, but does not give as many shots per charge as some others. I usually go on photo shoot expeditions at least once a week and typically shoot two to three hundred pics so havenot run out.
Excerpt: If you have the excellent A99 then you need a couple of THESE name brand Sony batteries, not the generic ersatz ones. These hold a charge better and longer and are more dependable than the generic. You can't go wrong with this battery even though they might cost a little more.
