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.

        Hours of power when you need it. Always remember to check the amount of power left, as it's easy to forget about it due to it's longevity.

        Item is as described. I'm using it with Sony's X70 XDCAM and it works great. Charge seemed to start dropping quickly but was long lasting in the end. It only makes sense, but make sure to get a full charge in to ensure lasting usage when in use.

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

          I was able to shoot an entire wedding including pre-ceremony photos, the ceremony and the reception on one charge! It was about 5 hours of HD shooting, and there was still charge left in the battery. I'm using a SONY Handycam HDR-PJ710.I have no idea why I did not buy this before now. In the past I have consistently been running out of power in places where I was relying on battery power and I had no spare. While this battery is much bigger than the original it came with, I did not find the size or weight to be a real problem. I did notice that it took awhile to charge it the first time. I highly recommend it!

              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 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.
