    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.

          Bought one previously for me FS700. It's a great battery, super long lasting. Liked it so much that I bought a second one for spare.

          Keep in mind the super long charge time (around 9 hours in my estimation). But there seems to be about 6 to 7 hours of battery life on a full charge.

          I use this with my Sony FS700. This battery looks like a brick, not that that's relevant. Just did a 7 hour shoot and this battery just lasted the entire time.

          Beware though, it takes forever to charge!! I left it overnight (7 hours), and it still wasn't fully charged.

                The battery takes forever to charge, even longer than the sony np970 battery. But it lasts very long as well. If I need another battery for my sony fs700, I would definitely buy another one.

                  The only reason for four out of five stars is that I'm not sure how long the battery will last. At around half the price of the Sony battery I figured it was worth a gamble. The Sony batteries last for many years but are a bit pricey.

                  We purchased one of these batteries for our FS-700 to test the compatibility with the camera. Everything worked great. Long life span in the field but the typical long charge times associated with most of these lithium-ion batteries. Overall excellent product.

                    I am using this on my Sony HXR-NX3 video camera. It provides ample power for a 2+ hour shoot. I could have gone on for another 30-45 minutes for sure. The ONLY negative thing about the battery is that it is a s-l-o-w charger. When I first got it there was no charge on it and it took 12-13 hours to get a full charge on it. Since then it seems to charge slightly faster but it is slow charging, no two ways about it. But it is a good battery - just plan ahead.

                      I only give it a 4 as there seems to be some limited information giving when it's powering up on the charger, like it won't tell you how long it needs to reach full charge where the sony brand does

                        I bought this to power my Genaray LED-7100T light unit. It recharges well and works great. I seem to get the same amount of time or a little more than the original batteries that came with the unit.

                        Saves me every time ! , thankfully bought this battery since the kit I had before only came with a regular battery , this battery can last upto 8 hours nonstop use , since I usually turn off the light when not in use, it will last so much more ! Watson so far has been a life saver even in other items

                            Except for the fact that the Sony regular charger does not send messages on charging status, it works perfectly. Propositally I left it on until the end of battery life. It gave me a lot of hours with the Z5 camera working all the time non stop. As good as the original.

                                I used this battery for a three hour video recording. With a Sony pd170 camcorder.No problems at this time.
