    Power Drains Quickly

    I bought this as a backup battery to my Sony RX 100 V camera. This is the only fault of this camera. The battery drains quickly. On a few days I went through 2 batteries and had to recharge with a external power source. It really drains the battery quickly when trying to transfer photos to iPhone or when using the iPhone to take selfie pictures. I finally decided to use the camera's 5 second timer to take selfies to save the battery. That was much better in saving battery life.

    Cover, or wrap, comes loose

    The batteries allow a lot of pictures to be taken. Unfortunately, the wrap, cover, whatever you call it, comes loose. At times the loose wrap catches on something when trying to insert the battery in the camera. The battery must be removed from the camera, the wrap needs to be squeezed back in place, then reinserted. All four batteries I have do the same thing.

    Buy extra because you'll need them

    Do yourself a favor and make sure you get at least 2 extra batteries so that you will have 3 total if you plan to use one of the Action Cameras like I did. I definitely needed the two batteries and I can see if I used the camera a bit more would have needed the third. They last around an hour or so if memory serves me right. Depends on how warm the day is etc and if you're doing recording or playback etc....

    The battery life doesn't last that long. I bought an extra one because of it but it still serves a purpose and I'm able to record what I want. Definitely needed an extra battery to record my daughter's extracurricular activities. So far two batteries aren't enough to record an entire event. I don't want to buy another one so I just try to record less to save battery life.

    Sony makes some amazing cameras, HOWEVER they all have one con to them...the battery life. My Sony RX100 only lasts about 20-30 minutes on a full charge recording in 1080p 60 fps...THATS KINDA SAD! My Canon G7X battery can last a WHOLE DAY!!! So these are a necessity if you are buying a Sony camera so I am still going to recommend buying extra batteries for your Sony camera.

    I bought this as a backup up battery for my new camera. Neither battery seems to last very long unfortunately. Maybe 150 pictures or so per full charge. :/ I only recommend it because the off brand replacement is actually more expensive. Stupid.

    Nice compact design, decent for photo use. Mediocre battery life doesn't last long for videos. Sony should make a new version for the cybershot series as these are not good at all for camera video recording mode.

    this item does its job but the price for this battery is a bit high not to mention you have to either charge your battery in your camera or buy a charger as well not impressed but if you need it you need it. they do tend to last a decent amount of time however

    I got this as an extra battery backup for my camera. The original seemed to lose it's charge rather quick. This isn't much better. Not sure why I can only take approx. 100 photographs before it runs out.

    I bought this as a back up battery for my camera. After I bought it, I found a non-Sony brand for cheaper and worked just a good. In the end, there a cheaper batteries that are just as good.

    I needed to have a second battery for my camera, so I bought it. As long as I wasn't taking video, it held it's power well. It's a battery, there's really nothing special about it.

    Purchased two of these for my camera. Batteries work well, but are a bit expensive. Cheaper alternatives are available.

    Honestly, I bought this because my non-proprietary batteries didn't come in time for vacation. It's way over priced for it's life span.

    It's an OEM battery pack for my handy cam, works well, but I think you can get it cheaper from other online retailers.

    I would like it if the charge lasted longer or that there was one that assured longer record time for howmuch it costs.
