Rechargeable lithium-ion battery for Sony NP-FV100
Premium Japanese cells for longer battery life with no memory effect
Compatible with the Sony camcorder and charger
Rated at 8.4V and 3900mAh, identical to the Sony original
Includes 2 NP-FV100 batteries with 3-year manufacturer warranty
The Wasabi Power FV100 features 3900mAh which provides a longer run-time between charges. It is made with premium Japanese cells to provide maximum battery life and also comes with a 3-year manufacturer warranty. Additionally, the Wasabi Power FV100 comes fully decoded, so it will display the remaining battery life and usage time and is completely compatible with all Sony original equipment including the Sony charger.
Here's the bottom line. Of the 8 batteries I received, 3 were defective. They last about 2/3 as long as the Sony NP-FV100 in my AX100, so they're more like 2600 mAh batteries. However, at this price, I'll live.
This is how you test to see if they're defective. Fully charge them and set your camera to record until it runs out of power. If your camera dies without saving the video, the battery is defective. I had originally purchased 4, and 1 didn't pass this test, so I ordered another pair. BOTH in the new set failed! Then I had a replacement pair sent to me, and they were fine. This took a lot of my time. If you need good batteries fast, order twice as many as you need and hope that half of them work.
I also tried these in the link below, and they were even worse. They're actually Vivitar batteries, and one came completely discharged, and if you know anything about Lithium ion batteries, reading 0V on the battery means permanent damage. The other 2 of the 3...
i was about to buy SONY FV100 for my SONY CX-700V but it was very priced $150 ! but i saw this product and i read all reviews and i thought there`s something wrong with the reviews cuz all of them give it 5 stars ! so i decided to buy it and test it on my CX-700 and the shipping & the price was very good, when i got my package i decided to test the two batteries & the charger
i`v fully charged the two batteries ( it took me about 3-to-4 hours for each ) i test the first one with Full HD Video Recording 1080p 60p Setting without using the GPS and it had recorded about 6 Hours & 30 minutes ( i`v turned off the camera several times ) the second battery recorded about 6 hours & 52 minutes in same Full HD setting but in this one i`v turned off the camera for 1 time only and then i`v continued recording until the battery shut off,
the other good thing with these batteries`s the info on the screen it gives you the recording time left on the...
Don't buy these, they aren't very good. Here's exactly why: 1. They don't display the correct remaining time on the charge on your camera 2. They have less than the stated capacity 3. I recorded 3.5 hours of video with my Sony camcorder (the battery said initially, and wrongly, that it would record 4.5 hours). So what happened at the end? Well, here is what is *supposed* to happen. The camera should save the file and shut down. What actually happens is that the camera shuts down *without* saving the file. So 3.5 hours of video gone forever. In fairness, many aftermarket batteries don't work properly or fudge or lie about the capacity. So if you want half a Sony that costs more than three times as much, it may by a good deal. For me, the shutdown is a serious problem.
