I purchased the above long life battery. I was able to count on it's nearly four hours of dependable power to shoot a wedding . . .plus an entire party following the wedding. No worries whatsoever about this battery quitting on me! I also purchased a SONY 810 CAMCORDER . .for the uses I have it cannot be beat. Having a couple of these strong batteries for back-ups I never have to worry about power; it is so nice not to depend on house power.[...]

When charging this battery with the double charger Sony AC-VQV10 AC Adaptor/Charger, the charger does not display the charge in the battery in terms of hours a minutes of operation remaining. This does not happen when the charger is used with the NP-FV30 Rechargeable Camcorder Battery Pack (500 mA). I do not know whether the problem is with the battery or with the charger.

      There are so many false/fake/lies/frauds of "the real thing" out there. Be careful. I only trust B&H because they are licensed with Sony, and other companies. Don't fall for the cheapest deal; it's not what they claim.
      Anyway, this battery is A+.. made for my camcorder so not much else to say.

                    Bought an extra battery for my Sony HXR-NX30u camera. I shoot a lot of corporate events, weddings, exercise and music videos so having a battery of this size lasting for 4 hours is sufficient. My oily nit-pick is the travel charger BC-TRV. It takes just over 4 hours to charge a completely expended battery. That means if I need to use it again, when my second battery dies within that 4 hour period, it won't be fully charged. I recommend purchasing the NP-FV100 battery as a second and/or third battery.

                        Have been using this with the Sony CX-900 camera. Last shoot was 8:30 AM to 1 PM. On and off shooting. B-Roll and interviews. Still had plenty of power left. I was using the flip out screen the entire time. I would advise to get two battery chargers if you have more than one battery. It takes less time on the charger to charge as compared to using the camera to charge the battery.
