      I am really impressed with the quality of this "free" kit when I purchased the Switronix light. And yes, due to the weight and size of the battery, the charger may fall out of loose wall sockets, so use a power strip. My wall outlets are fairly new and I don't have this issue. I also charge my Sony brand batteries of the same type and have no issues (i.e. the green indicator "charged" led on the charger works with my Sony batteries). On some off brand chargers this is not the case. Very pleased indeed.

      Got this free with my purchase of the Switronix TorchLED. It's a solid Sony knockoff battery and charger but not worth the price at all. You get can knockoffs with the same capacity and build for much cheaper elsewhere. It's a really great thing to get for free, but please do some research before paying that much for this.

          This was a replacement for one that arrived with a charger that did not work properly. Easy and fast replacement service from B&H.

              Lasted almost 3 hours on high, while I tried to drain it to see if I could get the charger to work...per recommendation from switronix. The charger was DOA but got a quick replacement from B&H. Great customer service.

                You really cannot go wrong with getting a Sony type battery, even more powerful than the 970 series, with battery charger, for less than $[$]. You can use it with your Sony camera if you are not using the light and take the lighweight battery charger with you on location if you need it.

                  Time will tell if these batteries last as long as the Sony batteries. My experience with other brands is that they do not. Otherwise, this kit seems fine. These came along with a light kit.

                          What can I say, it's another lithium ion battery and associated charger combo. Most of the work is done on the users part to ensure good performance and long life. I gave it only 4 stars simple because I don't use many of these and have no idea how many charge cycles I'll get out of it. I will say it is a decent match for the Torch LED fixture as long as you are not running it at its maximum output.

                                    This battery endures, close to 4 hours use with the Switronix Torch LED at full output.... Charging takes at least 6 hours, so plan accordingly. The price for this longevity is weight-- when used with the Torch LED, probably more weight than you want on your camera's hot shoe. So use a light stand, or a handle setup, which will also give the light some directionality.

                                      I am really impressed with the quality of this "free" kit when I purchased the Switronix light. And yes, due to the weight and size of the battery, the charger may fall out of loose wall sockets, so use a power strip. My wall outlets are fairly new and I don't have this issue. I also charge my Sony brand batteries of the same type and have no issues (i.e. the green indicator "charged" led on the charger works with my Sony batteries). On some off brand chargers this is not the case. Very pleased indeed.

                                          very good price, good life, long lasting. looks like ac unit can have other battery plates attached if you ever want to charge something else.however, the chargers are a bit flimsy, with rather bendable pins, that seem like they could easily break. also very slow to charge these batteries, but thats a classic problem of the 970.
