    Best Battery for Sony A6000!!!

    Okay, so a couple of months ago, I purchased a Sony A6000 from Best Buy, and I couldn't be happier (see that review)! I started with the battery it came with because I thought I would snapping a couple of photos here and there, nothing too crazy. Well I was completely wrong!!! I fell in love with that camera, and then fell in love with photography even more! I could not put the camera down. I started taking it everywhere! So what's a guy to do when the camera dies? Purchase another battery of course! And that's exactly what I did. I purchased not one, but two more of these Sony - NP-FW50 High-Capacity Lithium-Ion Batteries. Yes, there are off brands you can purchase for cheaper, but my outlook on that is, why buy cheaper products for a high quality camera?! That defeats the purpose. These batteries charge fast, hold a charge for a long time (depending on usage of course), and even tell you the percentage of battery left on your sony camera screen. Plus, Sony is definitely a name you can depend on, and they back up their products if you have any problems. Anyway, definitely recommend this product for any of the sony line cameras. A bit pricey, but you won't regret it. Tip: You can find these on sale from time to time at bestbuy.com OR the other option is, find them cheaper somewhere else and Best Buy will PRICE MATCH! They are amazing at price matching.

    When I first purchased extra batteries other than the original Sony that came with the camera, I went with the largest online company and got several non-Sony brand batteries for the price of one Sony NP FW50 and I was happy. After 6 months I noticed that the off brand cheaper batteries started losing charge very quickly, in some cases after 30 minutes of taking pictures. This is my fifth Sony FW50 and on an extensive weekend shoot, will use all 5. Also have four non-Sony brand batteries advertised as having more power and longevity. It is only true for the initial months, not long term. Don't even use the off brand anymore. The good deal was not a good deal. Stick with Sony and Best Buy has the one you need or can order and have it in no time.

    I bought the original Sony battery because of the feature that it shows the actual power level in percentage in the camera display (I am not sure if all Sony models support that, but mine does.). Another reason for the Sony brand original battery was that I have pretty mixed experiences with other brand replacement batteries, and often their life expectancy wasn't convincing. But that might be a personal, subjective experience. So far, my Sony FW50 batteries are consistent in load capacity and work well. I can't make any statements about the battery's life expectancy because I have it for only 2 months so far. It's weight is 42 grams (ca. 1.5 ounces).

    As Good as Stock

    What more do you want. Batteries are always subject to use case scenarios so battery life always varies. I will say that this battery preforms just as well as the stock battery that came with my camera. Would I like for it to last longer, of course. Who wouldn't. Are these more expensive than aftermarket batteries, usually. To me though it's not worth the risk, putting garbage batteries in what I consider to be my investment. Do I want to buy another $500-$2000 device because I put an after market battery in my camera and had something happen? Not this guy. What ever you pay for this little guy, its worth it to have Sonys brand on it. Protect your investment with quality Sony products. I always do and its once less thing I have to worry about when I'm out shooting.

    Switched from Canon DSLR to Sony mirrorless and am loving it. Should have known long time back. Anyway I would definitely recommend hobbyist or pro photographers. It's amazing size makes easier to carry around and shoot but my only concern is the battery life. It just drains out quickly and I would suggest an extra batteries. Hope Sony improves the battery life or supply more than 2 batteries. It would definitely help. Thank you Sony for making such a wonderful camera.

    It's the authentic Sony brand battery. Generic products in my opinion can't match Sony. I've gone through 2 generic batteries on a7r2 within a couple hours while Sony's battery still got lot of charge. Sony batteries life span through recharging is without doubt superior to generic's. Not to mention Peace of mind using Sony battery you don't have to worry about generic battery overheating, expanding or generics. The price you pay for Sony though higher than generic brands will out perform it in performance, life span Safety and dependability.

    The OEM Battery for the Sony Alpha Series

    This battery is just what you would expect, a battery. While the price is somewhat high compared to third-party batteries. I find the performance to be about equal, but these batteries hold their charge better. I usually have 6 batteries on me, and I rarely use them all in a day, but you never know. The Sony batteries go in and read 100% or high 90's, my third party batteries, sometimes start with high 80%. Luckily they're all small and light, but keeping track and keeping topped off is just easier with the OEM Sony Batteries.
