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.[...]

I didn't go large enough. This battery is a good backup to the 100 class battery. I would suggest going as large as possible. These batteries don't last as long as the previous Sony batteries did.As the saying goes...go big or go home.

    Comments about Sony NP-FV70 Rechargeable Camcorder Battery Pack (1960mAh, 6.8V):

    Purchased this battery for my Sony camcorder. My original battery lasts for about 1 hour only and sometimes it is ending in the most interesting moment, so I've decided to buy a bigger battery which will give me the possibility to record without any "energy lack" worry.

        This battery is crucial for filming longer sporting events. Enough power to film an entire soccer game without worrying about having to change the battery during the game.

                  This battery provides the right amount of extra recording time without sticking out from the camera so far that it gets in the way. Recommended for anyone that will record more than a few times per year.

                                            Perfect fit for my camera Sony, add great additional time of recording and is neither too big nor too heavy.
