    Sony Battery

    My Sony WX-350 did not come with a supplemental charger and required access to a local USB port to charge the single battery provided. I decided this was not acceptable and purchased a second Sony NP-BX1 Lithium battery, along with an external charger. Needless to say it is much more convenient to quickly replace the discharged battery with a fully charged second battery. It only takes about 30 seconds compered to the chore of charging the battery in the camera and foregoing any picture taking. The battery is an identical replacement to that provided with the camera.

    Excellent battery - needs more capacity

    The Sony RX100 V is an excellent camera. As of this time, Sony only recommends the NP-BX1 as the battery to use. Went through 3 of them during the day of heavy usage. The battery did not get hot, fail or glitch the camera, even when it was low on charge. The battery provided plenty of power till it ran out. My only complaint is the camera needs a battery with more capacity so one can run for a longer time before changing batteries out. That's not the fault of the battery. When there is a higher cap battery available I will try it to see how it works.

    It's the genuine article--not a foreign knock-off

    This battery charged up just like it should and gave me the expected number of shots -- which isn't a heck of a lot. So I recommend having extras on hand if you shoot a lot. If you use your flash a lot or set your camera to continuous shooting, you will run through batteries quickly. I now have five of these batteries and think I could easily use that many in a day. I use it with my Sony RX100 camera and got the Sony charger which works well and gives me a clear indication when the battery is completely charged.

    Bought two of these batteries as spares for my new Sony DSC-HX80 camera. Have recharged them a couple of times now with no problems and they also have a good long use life. Would have preferred to pay less but new ones were they same price or more expensive on the web without the advantage of Best Buy Rewards.

    Best battery for my Sony compact

    This battery was exactly what I needed for my Sony RX100IV. It was expensive, but not more than at any other camera store. And I was elated that it came with a convenient battery case! I was so happy it was in stock, for I needed a back-up for my upcoming trip to the Grand Canyon! I strongly recommend having a back-up battery (or two) for your digital camera, especially if you shoot lots of photos like I do!

    Good insurance for vacation picture taking.

    I bought this for a backup when the original runs out of power for our vacation. It seems to have a very long life and it is always good insurance to have an extra battery for your camera on vacation. The reviews say that you can take almost 400 pictures and I think that between the two batteries we will be able to cover the busiest picture taking days on our Alaskan vacation.

    Battery Vs. Battery

    I have an RX100 MKII which is a $700+ camera. I didn't want to take any chances with an aftermarket battery. The best thing about using the manufacturers battery is they both behave exactly the same (charge time, drain time). I've used cameras with a replacement battery that would drain faster than the original and it makes it tough to be out in the field and not intuitively know how much battery life I have.

    I have two. It may have been the first charge for one of the batteries that needed a second go-round with the charger because it seemed very short-lasting. But a proper re-charge fixed the issue. I think I did read that a double check on the charge might be necessary. However, I also found that to be true with other battery brands in the past. I plug into the wall to charge. That's my favorite way by far.

    This battery is a great rechargeable battery. I found it appealing b/c you are able to view the remaining battery life in minutes. A word of caution, you are only able to view the remaining battery life ONLY if you use it with electronic equipment having the InfoLITHIUM logo. If your equipment doesn't have the logo, the capacity will not be displayed in minutes. Otherwise, it's a good battery.

    Bought an extra battery for my Sony - AS300 action-cam I know there are after market versions but I wouldn't trust any other brand. When you buy brand name there is no risk for compatibility issues, build quality is better as well as durability, the charge is very consistent no unexpected power loss. Simply put the quality is better and more reliable.

    Useful for extra batteries for my Sony RX-100 V

    I purchased these batteries as extras for a long trip I am taking with my Sony RX-100 V camera. These are perfect for my needs, reasonably priced and are the exact batteries that came with my camera. Great deal on a necessary accessory for cameras. These also work with other cameras, just check your battery model number before purchasing.

    It is a great battery, but I bought it so that I could use it with the new Sony POV camera that just came out. Im 95% sure that the camera is to blame for the overheating of this battery, because I have used several Sony cameras and camcorder and this is the first time i have a battery heat up to this degree. If would recommend this to any one who plans to take videos on day long activities.

    Great battery! Just got back from a tour in Great Britain and Ireland. Have two batteries for my HX400V used both batteries everyday for 12 days and took over 4,100 photos. I'd recharge both batteries and go again with a full day of photos the next day! Still charging strong.

    Bought a back up battery that was the same as the one with the camera before my 2 week vacation. I did a lot of recording on the high quality setting and quite honestly only got close to running out of battery once. Never really needed to switch batteries because they last so long. Unless you are doing a lot of recording you probably don't need a backup.

    My wife and I took our camera to Scotland for two weeks of constant photography. We used this small battery in our Sony. After eight hours of intermittent shooting, we never had less than 1/2 a charge left on our battery by the end of the day. We did not need our back-up battery.

    I purchased the battery for my Sony camera. It's always nice to have an extra since my camera will only take about 300 pictures before it needs to be recharged. I'm not sure if it's worth the extra money for a genuine Sony product, but I guess if you're willing to spend $800 for a point and shoot camera (RX100M3), $39 isn't so bad.

    We recently took a trip to Disneyland and needed a good, reliable back up battery for our camera. There's cheaper options out there, but I felt confident that this battery would last and not blow up on me! I was right!

    spend the extra $ on a the actual name brand battery for your cameras! it really makes a difference, the off brands ya cheaper but not by much & won't last! these batteries last a long time & even charge faster than others. didn't think it really mattered till now but it does. I even bought an extra one cause it is always good to have a back up!

    Purchased this battery after trying an aftermarket battery even from a name brand manufacturer. The aftermarket battery kept needing to be charged even though it was tested to be at full strength. The camera is a sony RX100. Best buy had a sale on this battery that made it worth the little extra cost. The battery worked and fit perfectly.
