I've just acquired a SONY 77 II and of course I'd recomend it to any one. I bought a spare battery to make sure I wouldn't be surprised while away from home. I'm still getting used to its many many features, but what I've seen so far tells me that its simply a fantastic equipment. I'm moving from my previous camera, a SONY Alfa 100, and the difference is extraordinary. I'm sorry, but I don't know what else to say. I hope this can be useful for something.

When i bought these I expected a battery pack that would actually fit in my camera. When I have to use pliers to remove the battery pack from my camera I am not impressed with the quality. I own a @700 and the original battery pack fits like a glove. This pack need to hammered inn and pulled back out again. Sorry guys. This is not acceptable and it is not even worth the one star that I was forced to give it.

Comments about Watson NP-FM500H Lithium-ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1500mAh):

I can't give this a 5* only because I have not actually used it in my camera yet. I have no doubt it will be fine though. I bought it as a back up for my Sony A100 as I did not want to spend $100+ for a "Sony" branded battery. It fits perfectly, no problems getting it in or out. Charged up on my Sony charger no problem. This arrived very promptly and hassle free from B&H. The option to pre-pay the duties and taxes is a bonus.

Doesn't last as long as Sony battery (maybe 75% as long?) but it gets the job done. A decent alternative. No problems with it not fitting well or swelling, etc.

So far so good. This battery replaced another non Sony battery that had started to get the non interface issue. Charged this new one up and no issues so far. Good price so I recommend it

Good Battery

Comments about Watson NP-FM500H Lithium-ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1500mAh):

This is a great battery. I purchased 4 of them. I do wish it had a bit more power. Although the battery is important..........it's also important to know what it is your camera/lens are doing. Continuous AF, 600mm vs. 18mm make a huge difference and each factor uses more or less power. But compared to Nikon batteries etc........it does take less pics which is the only reason i'm give 4 stars.

Comments about Watson NP-FM500H Lithium-ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1500mAh):

Very long lasting battery (compatible to Sony"

Please don't let the name or price fool you. Order as many as you can. You will be very pleased at how many images you can take on a fully charged battery.

I counter almost 500 images before charging is needed.

Highly recommended to anyone who takes a-lot of pictures.

Best Uses

    Comments about Watson NP-FM500H Lithium-ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1500mAh):

    I purchased this battery for use in my Sony A77ii. Comparing it to the original Sony branded battery, I can find no significant differences in construction.

    This battery is rated for 1500mAh, vice the Sony's 1600mAh, and 11.1Wh versus 11.5Wh. This difference in specification results in a slightly lower number of shots per charge, but considering the difference in price, it's absolutely worth it.

    I have run into no issues with the camera recognizing the battery and it charges in what appears to be a slightly lower amount of time, obviously due to the slightly lower capacity.

        I bought this battery for my Sony DSLR. The original name brand was more expensive. This Watson battery is good. Quality not equal to original, but good enough. Keep this battery charged as a backup when on a photographic venture, when excessive shooting is expected. Better safe than sorry. I would recommend this battery to others needing a good inexpensive battery.

        I bought this battery as a replacement for my Sony a300 dslr camera. I am very pleased with its functioning thus far. I will definitely be ordering another as a spare. Charge life has been the same if not better than the original. I would highly recommend this battery to anyone who needs a replacement or just as an extra to have on hand.

        This is my 4th Watson battery I've purchased. They are reliable, have good lasting power and are completely compatible with my Sony equipment. Well worth the cost saving over the OME products. Don't second guess, buy it!

            I wanted a back-up battery for my new Sony A58. I take a lot of photos and find myself running out of power too quickly. This batter seems to work well. Have taken many photos with it and am pleased so far. Also, it's less expensive.
