This S-8U63 BP-U Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery from SWIT can be used with select Sony camcorders from the professional PMW and PXW lines. This battery interfaces with the camera electronically, providing real-time information such as approximate capacity and time remaining for viewing on the monitors and in the viewfinder. Capacity info can also be quickly checked using the 4-LED indicator. Camera accessories can be powered right off the battery via a D-tap output, and a USB output can be used to charge or provide power to your smartphone or other electronic device.

4-level LED power indicator, to give a quick view of remaining power before using
14.4V D-tap DC output socket, to power the other on-camera devices simultaneously.

    SWIT S-8U63 reviews

    S-8U63 Li-Ion Rechargeable Battery for Select Sony Cameras is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for FS5 I can power my FS5 all day, including tapping power to run a SmallHD 502. Each battery lasts about 2.5 hours of shooting time. They recharge very quickly, too, with the Sony charger. The only con is that the time remaining indicator on the FS5 menu isn't accurate with these batteries. It reads 99 percent until the battery reaches about 25 percent left, then quickly drops. No worries, I just use the push-button led on the back of the battery to gauge how much life is left.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Third Party BPU-60 Replacement I'm using this as the main power supply for my Sony FS-7. It communicated perfectly with the camera (giving % / time remaining), and the Sony BPU battery charger (showing recharge progress indicators). The capacity is as you would expect for a battery of this rating, giving 3-4hrs usage with manual lenses, and only dropping to 2-3hrs with IS lenses. Also includes D-tap and USB power output sockets, with weather-shielding rubber covers. Note the D-tap will require an additional physical adaptor to be accessible given the shape/depth of the FS-7's battery cavity. Recommended to anyone looking for a more reasonably-priced alternative to the Sony BPU-60 battery. :-) jason

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great battery This battery is compatible with the Sony FS7, unlike some of the other knockoffs of the Sony onboard batteries out there. It has incredible capacity and behaves like a Sony battery in the camera The D-tap is useful for powering accessory devices but cannot be used easily when the battery is mounted in the camera.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but P-tap not accessible on FS7 when plug in camera Working great with my Sony Fs7. A little more power than the genuine Sony. But I was buying this one for the P-tap and unfortunately, it is on top so impossible to access/plug something in it while clip in the battery slot of the FS7. Poor design there, the USB is at reach at the bottom but useless for my needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Run and Drag becomes Run & Gun again Gives my Sony FS5 wings again. Every larger battery like this should come with USB & D-Tap connections. This provides drastic weight reductions on your rig. Power your camera, external power zoom lens (B4 etc), Odyssey, Atomos, wireless mics, iPad and more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the Sony I bought this battery to use with a Sony FS5 camera. I cannot tell exactly if performance compared to the Sony BP-U60 is better or worse. It is probably equal or very close, but I say it is a better battery for the USB port: I can use it to power accessories or charge my phone. It is a bit longer than the BP-U60, but doesn't really make a difference to me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll likely need a D-Tap Charger for this battery. Purchased as an accessory for a battery powered BrightCast light I had ordered. Has USB and D-Tap power outlets. This would not charge on my standard Sony Charger, and I had to buy a separate D-Tap Charger for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good deal So far as I can tell these work great for a good price. Seems to last a similar length as the Sony batteries
