    This is the backup battery that was included as part of the package with my HDR-CX700V Sony Camcorder. It works great, and should power the camera for 8 hours (I haven't had the camera long enough to use it 8 hours yet). The only drawback is that it is very outsized for a small camcorder. The battery is a little over 2" long and it sticks out so far off the back that it looks a bit unbalanced. More importantly, I can't use the viewfinder when this battery is installed.

    If I were buying a backup battery, I'd consider getting two smaller ones instead of one that is quite so large. However, as a backup battery that was part of the camera package I am very happy with it. When I want to use the viewfinder (which will be relatively rare) I can switch to the smaller battery that comes standard with the camcorder. It's nice to have 8 hours of backup power available.

    I ended up returning this because it sticks out too far so you can't use the camera eyepiece on the Sony HDR-XR550. The NP-FV100 is a great choice if you operate only from the screen. I traded it for two NP-FV70's, perfect fit, and they run all day.

      Once you go with this double size battery you can never go back. Not only is the battery durable, but it 's a long lasting power source, reducing stress on set and allowing for more time to film. Overall a worth while battery worth investing in

        Comments about Sony NP-FV100 Rechargeable Battery Pack (3900mAh, 8.4V):

        Just wanted to mention how nice this battery is. Bought it a few months back, and have used it many times. I needed a battery that would last at least 7 hours in my sony camcorder, this thing last that long, and can go on for 7 more hours. No need to change battery in middle of a project. as far as some say its heavy....well compared to the camera, it is heavy, but not tiring to hold camera. I would recommend this battery.

          This battery is used to record back-to-back baseball games and save the digital files to my backup storage areas. While the charging time takes longer, it is well worth the wait.

          Comments about Sony NP-FV100 Rechargeable Battery Pack (3900mAh, 8.4V):

          Lets face it, the battery that comes with most brand new camcorders will only last for 1-2 hours. That's why I always recommend buying the biggest battery that is available. And I recommend always buying the Sony brand over the imitation brands so everything will work smoothly. This battery will last 4 hours straight when filming in 4K resolution and up to 8 hours straight when filming in 2K resolution. If you are going out for the day to film, I would get 2 of these batteries for backup.

              The big battery is definately worth the investment! It gives you so much more shooting time. I think after I charged it up I got almost 300 minues of battery compared to less than 100 minutes on the standard battery.

                I use my video camera for recording broadcast TV. In that the majority of my shoots are outdoors (outdoor progarmming) I don't have the ability to plug into a wall to keep running. Having a NP FV100 battery gives me hours of time on the water or in the field with no worries about running out of power for my camera. If you need to work without chaning batteries often, this a a good option to consider and worth the cost. By the way, I shopped around. B&H had the best price.

                    The power cell that came with the Sony NX70U is good, but if your going to buy a second one this is your choice. The battery compartment holds different size batteries. The other good thing is the charger works on both size batteries, so you don't need a second charger. You get more time to film and less time changing batteries.

                    I use this for personal travel and leisure recording. After 2 hrs of use, not even 1 stripe on the battery load indicator is fading. This battery lasts.
                    The only shortfall is the weight. Weighs as much as the Camera I have (HDR - CX290e). And takes a while to charge it, but still, this is a very useful item for almost a full day of recodring.

                      This battery is INSANE ... I mean don't buy this unless you NEED several hours worth of shooting time ... When I purchased my Camera the HDR-TD20V which shoots 3D I thought I would need this because my Camera comes with the NVP-70 .. in 2D mode that goes for almost 3 hours on 1080p ...well if you pop in this Battery , your guantteed at least 4 hours on my Camera , I think it was more like 4&1/2 hours really (maybe longer as I only used it one time , turns out this battery may have been overkill for me , but it IS nice to know I won't ever run out of juice )...one thing you should know , as others haves said it DOES take a long time to charge this battery , so plug it in the night before . The reason I got the Camera here at B&H photo is really two fold ..1. the price and 2 , after checking the internet I saw that they had in the past been selling some sort of knock offs that appeared to be sony but were not (they also didn't work like they were suppose to ) ...by going with B&H photo I know i'm getting a product that works as it's desgined to .

                                Great battery life, especially when using the 1080p HD capabilities of my Sony Handycam. Long battery life comes at a small price to pay (the battery is almost as large adn DEFINIELY heavier than the camera itself). Well worth the extra price, and you always have the battery that was included with the camera as a functional backup
