    It is generic brand but it serves as a Sony Brand one. I thought it is not as same specs as Sony, but it is. After I received, I charge for a whole night just to make sure it's full of charge. I snap it on my Sony Digital Video Recorder. My camera shows hour many hours remain. It is 10% more than my original Sony NP-F950. All I can say is it is great battery for half of the cost of my pocket.

    The time showed in camera was great but one day i need all time and it stoped after 1,5min, i put charge many time but not, only 1,5 min of shot.
    I opened the batery and see signals of corrosion, many rust.
    I used a few months. I bought in 09/2009 and stopped in 2010, november. Without any reason, camera shot in the studio, air conditioners, no several conditions.

          Comments about Watson NP-F975 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 7800mAh):

          We purchased this battery because of the other reviews of the battery life on the Atoms Shogun Monitor. We immediately began using these batteries instead of the ones that came with the device (which we use as backup). They are a bit heavier, but on a balanced rig, it's really moot. We get a couple hours out of each charge. On a 10-hour shoot, we use 2 of these batteries per monitor. A great investment if you'd rather focus on your shoot rather than swapping out batteries.

              With this battery I have been able to film 200 min. straight. I capture sunrises and sunsets. And now I don't have to worry how remote of an area that I trek to. I know that I will have the battery power for the job.

                These work great and last a long time. I bought a few of them and one was defective. So I suggest ordering one or two extras if you're in a time crunch just in case. I ordered a couple more and sent the defective back. The two extras I got worked fine and the return was handled very easily and quickly. I now have 5 of these and they're great.

                I have used Watson batteries for about 2 years now. They work great and hold a charge like my comparable Sony batteries. For half the price of a Sony battery, you can't go wrong even if it lasts half of a Sony battery (which it mostly does not). If you are still uncomfortable using these on an important shoot, use them as backups. One way or another, you will not be disappointed with these.

                      using aftermarket battery can be a hit and miss, some does not fit perfectly, some does not last, and some are so bad that you start to worry about putting it on your expensive equipment.

                      I was introduced to this make some time ago, and have encounter no problem ever since. Now this is my go to after market battery for all my camera, camcorder, lighting, etc.

                                  Comments about Watson NP-F975 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 7800mAh):

                                  I purchased this battery to power my Ikan 7" monitor and it has been absolutely fantastic. I have been on set, multiple times, for 12 to 14 hours and this battery just kept on going. Keep in mind that is not 12-14 hours straight, but if you are careful to save your battery during set-ups and breaks, it will run with you all day. It is definitely a workhorse.

                                      We do a lot of event shooting and often cannot be plugged in; so when that happens we need lots of batteries and these have proven to hold up.

                                        This is a good value battery for the price. It fits both my camera and my other video accessories like monitors and lights.

                                        I just purchased a Sony HXR-NX3 with 2 batteries from B&H. My first gig took place and after a 2.75 hour shoot, the battery had an unbelievable 63% remaining power! I am so accustomed to having to swap out batteries but after this gig, that will no longer be a concern.
