                  I use this battery with my sony A7s. It doesn't seem to have as long lasting as a charge as the Sony brand battery, however I still lasts a decent amount of time to make it a very worthwhile purchase. I would definitely recommend the purchase of this product

                                Correct size with no any problems for working with A7R, so far, looks like no difference between this one and Sony battery. Could be recognized by A7R immediately.

                                  Good price, works well with the Sony a6000 camera. It's true that it doesn't hold a charge as long as an authentic Sony battery, but it doesn't discharge as rapidly as some other OEM batteries do either.

                                    I wanted to have a spare battery for my Sony camera and bought this one instead of the Sony battery. Much cheaper and works perfectly. At least up to now (just 1 month of use)

                                      Held its charge was well as the OEM battery (in a Sony Alpha NEX-6), and considerable lower in cost. This is my first experience with Watson, and I found it to be just as good as other 3rd party batteries I've purchased for other cameras. I also bought the STK charger, so I could charge the not-being-used battery while still using the camera.

                                            This is the back up battery. I used it when I am charging the original battery. For the price I paid, I am satisfied.

                                                    Great price and really long battery life. Use it with my Nex 6 and find I can shoot for 3-4 days with it before needs to be charged.

                                                    Battery works well if charged with the Watson charger. I have a Sony Nex 6 if you try to charge the battery in the camera the way Sony says it will not charge completely. Is that the battery or Sony?
