    This was to have an additional Sony battery for my camera. I almost didn't need one as the original one I bought with the same (exact same battery) just seems to last forever. I can go to a school event and record an entire show and never have to worry about running out of battery life--even if it's not fully charged. I run out of memory on the camera before I worry about battery. It does stick out a little but is so worth it to have the long battery life.

          Ordered the battery on a Monday afternoon and received it Wednesday morning. The battery fit perfectly and works great. I'll definitely buy photo gear from B&H again.

                  The NP-FV70 Battery for my Sony Camcorder worked flawlessly on our trip to Safari West wild animal
                  resort. This battery appeared to loose charge less rapidly than the origional Sony battery that sells
                  for double or more.

                        When purchasing a camcorder, you should buy at least one additional battery. I decided to go with one that had larger capacity.

                                I was a bit wary of purchasing a battery for our video camera that was not a brand I knew but after being assured by the sales person, I decided to take a chance and I'm delighted. This battery was priced far lower than the equivalent Sony and it is performing beautifully.

                                Really nice battery, however it is a little bulky but that is the price you pay to use the camera for an extended period.

                                        This battery was not as expensive as the Sony and works well. The VG-20 has not given me any backtalk for putting it on there so being able to get the 3rd party one was a savings!

                                        Same performance as the Sony stock battery included with the VG-20.

                                        Will buy more!

                                              I meant to use this when I purchased a Sony
                                              HDR-PJ580V camcorder. I tried the camcorder out and this battery lasted longer than I had the camcorder. I had to return the camcorder as the manufacturers website had lies about what the camera could do. B & H as usual had accurate information.
                                              The battery recharged quickly in my universal
                                              re-charger.
                                              The only negative thing I could say was that the price was too high. But it was cheaper than a Sony Battery,

                                                  This battery works just fine. It does what the packaging says. It is twice as large as the original battery, so it makes the camera heavier or balnced in a different way.
