I've always been amazed at how expensive Sony batteries are for the types of Sony equipment I use. Only recently did I find that there were other makers that made AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL and Vivitar (a brand that I'm familiar with) is one of them. Initially, I thought that while it may power the camera just as well I entertained the thought that it wouldn't take as many recharges or that the charge wouldn't last as long when put under a load. I was wrong. This is an excellent battery which in every way is as good or better that the original battery...oh, and WAY cheaper at Amazon than at any other site.
My VIV-SB-FV100 and VIV-SB-FV70 batteries and The vivitar ACDC Rapid Travel Charger for them are real lifesavers. They work well together.and are much less expensive than the sony equivalent.
Although its a little large on the back of the camera it does the job. Still need to run the battery dead a few more times to give a true time on how long this battery lasts.
