            I purchased this back up battery for my camera. I noticed that many of the generic products just don't hold a charge as long as the real thing. I suggest spending a few more dollars and go for the manufacturer's brand.

                This is my first Sony battery that really lasts.
                Even though it was less than half charged when it arrived, the battery lasted long enough to take a lot of pictures, film some videos and check the photos over wifi on my tv with no problems, and take photos next day as well.
                On my previous Sony camera (G Battery) with less than half of the battery charging time was coming ahead quickly.

                    When shooting important events, my philosophy is don't take unnecessary chances. The knockoff/clone batteries are cheaper, but often just don't last as long. Sony makes good batteries.

                    1240 mah, Super long battery life, it was a part of my Kit, nice to have it be bundled with it, I brought 3rd party battery with higher mah on [*], better prices. But the SONY OEM quality is better. Buy it and be glad you did

                      I only buy manufacturer's replacement batteries. I have heard too many horror stories about off-brand batteries destroying equipment, so why take the risk. The few extra dollars are worth it. If this happens with an off-brand battery, you have nothing to stand on when making a warranty claim. If a manufacturer's battery ruins your equipment, at least you have an argument.
