      When i bought these I expected a battery pack that would actually fit in my camera. When I have to use pliers to remove the battery pack from my camera I am not impressed with the quality. I own a @700 and the original battery pack fits like a glove. This pack need to hammered inn and pulled back out again. Sorry guys. This is not acceptable and it is not even worth the one star that I was forced to give it.

        The battery works exactly like the Manufacturers battery. No need for a special charger, works with the charger that came with the camera.

              I have 2 of the batteries and 2 Sony batteries for my Sony SLTs. These work great and are an inexpensive alternative to the OEM battery.

                    Not quite as many watts as the equivalent Sony battery, but, considering the price differential, an excellent choice for a spare/backup battery.

                        There is not much to say about a battery. This one works fine and costs half as much as the Sony product. Some reviewers complained that it does not fit properly in their cameras. It fits just fine in my a65.

                                I purchased this as a second battery for the Sony a65. I have notice no performance difference between this and the stock Sony battery, but the cost was less than 1/2 of the Sony.

                                            It seems to work as well as my original Sony battery. I have not used it much yet but I feel it will serve the purpose I bought it for which is to back-up the Sony battery when I am on extended adventures away from power.

                                                was looking for a power supply that did not cost a lot but worked with the two cameras that we own. I could purchase this battery for half the price of the sony battery's and it works the same.

                                                      Haven't used it to test life of charge, but it fit into my Sony charger and into my Sony A57 just fine. Should be fine as a backup battery.

                                                          it works. it seems to perform well. the "fit" is a little snug but it goes in and comes back out easily. this is not as good as the "real" Sony battery, but for a back-up to your back-up it will do.
