    Genuine Sony NP-FV50 battery

    I opted for the genuien Sony battery. There were several non-Sony choices with the same designation, but they had less than 1030 mAhr capacity.

    I received this battery with a Sony TG5V today. Sad that the battery is not compatible. I bought it because it appeared in item Accessories when I ordered the TG5V, so I thought that's good to have a higher capacity one than the original FH50. Cannot return it because I'm overseas now so it's costly to ship.

    In short, beware that when you order something, those appear as Accessories may not be compatible.

        Comments about Sony NP-FV50 Rechargeable Battery Pack (1030mAh, 8.4V):

        I used this battery as spare for my Sony Handycam on a safari to Namibia. It is identical to the battery that came with the camera. When fully charged, I found this gave me over an hour and a half of continuous shooting capability. So with two of these, I could shoot all day without worry of running out of juice. This included dozens of separate videos and photos over the course of the day. With a third, larger spare, I had no worries the entire trip about running out of power when in the field.

        After returning from the trip, I have found that the batteries drain fairly quick when installed on my camera. However, the batteries that are stored off the camera have maintained their charge quite well.

            Comments about Sony NP-FV50 Rechargeable Battery Pack (1030mAh, 8.4V):

            I use this Sony Lithium Battery with my favorite Sony Handycam DCR-SX63 Zeiss 60x 16gb very lightweight camcorder. The movies are amazing sharp, and being that I am a senior, it is so easy for me to operate this camera.

            The battery holds a long charge. Depending on the battery, you can shoot for 200 minutes or more.

            I attend many family weddings, so I purchased additional few batteries to keep on hand.

            I must add that I just love this camera. After I take movies, I later transfer them from the Handycam to the VRD-MC8 to make a DVD easily without a comuter.

                            Most camcorder tends to drain battery quickly compared to still camera. I use my camcorder a lot when I travel and just one battery won't last me whole day. I am glad I bought this battery as backup for my camcorder.

                            Comments about Sony NP-FV50 Rechargeable Battery Pack (1030mAh, 8.4V):

                            I needed a second battery so I would always have one fully charged and ready to go. This was my first order from B&H and they didn't disappoint.

                              I bought this as a spare to go with my HDR-CX200 video cam. If you need to maximize the compactness of your rig, this is the one to have. It won't record as long as the FV70, but it's only about 2/3 the size. Like all the Sony proprietary batteries, this one's a keeper. That said, the FV70 improves that camera's balance and handling noticeably and offers increased recording time.

                                I read reviews on this product before hand and some were stating that this product does NOT last long. This is the furthest from the truth! This battery last quite some time and I have had nothing but good outings with it!

                                      For Sony HDR-CX110E (PAL)
                                      Bought 2 to suppliment the same origonal li-ion. Having them all the same, I don't need to remember different running and charging times.
                                      Up to 4-5 hours operating time is more than enough for me.
                                      Great prices from B&H help me afford quality OEM accessories. Less than half the price in Australia.
                                      Time will tell in regards to longevity and long term reliability. My experience with Sony, is that they produce top quality gear; the camcorder certainly is. (Bought locally)
