      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.

        I purchased this battery as a backup for my Sony A-65 camera. The price was very reasonable and it works just as well as the OEM battery. I am very pleased with its performance.

            Comments about Watson NP-FM500H Lithium-ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1500mAh):

            I've just acquired a SONY 77 II and of course I'd recomend it to any one. I bought a spare battery to make sure I wouldn't be surprised while away from home. I'm still getting used to its many many features, but what I've seen so far tells me that its simply a fantastic equipment. I'm moving from my previous camera, a SONY Alfa 100, and the difference is extraordinary. I'm sorry, but I don't know what else to say. I hope this can be useful for something.

                          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.

                                                  Nice to buy a battery that works well and only pay half the price!

                                                    Got this battery as a backup. It seems to work perfectly. For the price, it's a good deal.

                                                      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.
