Sony NP-FW50 reviews

NP-FW50 Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery (1020mAh) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 612.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Massive power drain... This battery is awful for retaining its drains down drastically even when the camera is turned off! And when you're actually using the camera, well...I have suffered through with this abysmal battery performance since the thing was new because the camera is so handy and creates great images. I've been using the battery that originally came with my 5-N Sony, which I bought soon after it hit the market...figured it's time to order a new one...then I saw the price!� $55 for a battery this bad?� What is worse, the clone batteries that I have used perform even more poorly than the SONY factory batteries...but, if it's the only game in town, I'm stuck...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you own an NEX, you need extra JUICE! Being an battery, there isn't a whole lot to say about it. The thing is, if you own a Sony NEX 5, you really need to carry at least one extra battery. These cameras eat electricity the way an Olds 98 went through gas. This isn't necessarily a function of the battey, but more of the camera. The LCD display and the menu jumping consume a lot of power. Another charging unit would be useful as well, to carry in the bag. The LCD protector kit is also a must-have. For the price, you can't go wrong. Sony is suppossed to be coming out with an adaptor that snaps on the back of the camera, but until they arrive on these shores, this is a good, cheap alternative.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NOT the same as original - now 1020mAh I bought this item as a spare with my Sony a7 earlier this year (Jan 2014). It was identical to the battery that came with my camera. Made in Japan, the label on the battery says that it is min 1020mAh and typ 1080mAh. Regardless, the a7 sucks the power out of these batteries in no-time. If you're shooting all day, you'll probably need at least two fully charged batteries to get through it.Last week (Jul 2014), I bought 5 more batteries using the same B&H part number as before, SONPFW50. The new batteries are different than the originals. They are noticeably lighter in weight and the back says they are rated at 1020mAh. No mention of 1080mAh. And they are made in China, not Japan. I am concerned that they will not maintain a charge as long as the original batteries I bought 6 months ago.I'm disappointed that Sony and B&H have substituted an obviously cheaper product for the same-priced original batteries that I bought earlier this year. At minimum, I think the part number and description should have been updated to reflect the difference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive, but worth the $$$ for an OEM battery I bought the NP-FW50 as a spare for my a5100. There really aren't any surprises with this--it is a high quality battery that does exactly what it is supposed to do. It is expensive compared to the third party batteries, but I personally find the extra cost worth it. I have tried third party batteries in the past, and I have always found that the OEM batteries hold their charge much longer over the life of the battery, last longer per charge before being drained, and feel like they are better made and with higher quality materials. The biggest con to this battery is the length of time required to recharge it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The one and only I use this battery for my Sony NEX 3N. Excellent battery life, quick charge, and best of all shows remaining battery life on the camera. The off brand batteries do not provide that information and so far have been inferior to the battery life of the Sony product. Beware that it took about 3 charges and depletions for the battery to perform well. I almost returned it when it barely held a charge the first time. After reading other reviews it appears this battery has a bit of a burn in period. Best advice is to charge and deplete a couple of times when first purchased before planning on using it for a special occasion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Necessary There are a few thing I like. It's small, recharges fairly quickly, and can be used in both my A6000 and my A7II. The thing I don't like. The camera's they were designed for suck them dry relatively quickly. Which makes them overpriced for the actual usage I can get from a single charge. Additional battery's are necessary if you're planning on what I would consider a normal shoot with any other camera/battery combo. Back to the good. They are also considerably better than the less expensive knock off batterys sold by W. Since there is no viable alternative. I would recommend them to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so small...and weak. Hey, it's a good product. I'm very glad it came with my camera at no additional charge. I would hate to have to purchase another one being that they are very expensive for how small they are. I suppose there are cheaper alternatives, but when you think about how much the actual camera cost (A7rII) I'm hesitant to put anything in it that might cause the camera to malfunction. I used to have a Fuji X-Pro 1 and XT-1, and their batteries lasted longer. You NEED at least two of these batteries if you are going out for the day. Use them sparingly! The camera will drain them quickly if you sit and chimp at your screen all day long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery Life a No GO I thought buying original Sony batteries would be a sound investment but sadly its not the case with these batteries. I own a Sony A7Sii and these batteries will last about 30 minutes max and they take upward of 2-3 hours plus to charge. So I suggest you buy 6+ of these batteries if you are working a full day.
