Rechargeable lithium-ion battery for Sony NP-FV70
Premium Japanese cells for longer battery life with no memory effect
Compatible with the Sony camcorder and charger
Rated at 8.4V with 2500mAh for a longer run time
Includes 2 NP-FV70 batteries with 3-year manufacturer warranty
The Wasabi Power FV70 features 2500mAh 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 FV70 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.
The price is way less expensive as compare to a Sony brand of the same. Each battery when is fully charged it display on my HDR-PJ710V screen that it has about 2hr. 50min battery usage. So with 2 batteries it will give me about 4 - 6 hrs usage it depends on how you are using it. I don't know if the Sony brand will give you the same among of battery usage time or longer. It will work for sightseeing on trips. I will just charge them up each night. It also came with an adaptable round leg plug that will fit outlets in Asia and Europe. That will be handy. The car charger is also a wonderful idea. Be sure to align the battery with the front catch on the charger that it came with, press down and push forward to fit battery on. Then you won't have any prbblem fitting the battery onto the charger. This just a small characteristic of the charger and the battery you need to be aware of. For a small price, it is well worth the money.
Purchased as spare batteries for my Sony video camera. Lessons learned from using (4) different video cameras over a couple of decades is never buy cheap knockoffs. Many chisel on the quality of the internal cells. Wasabi doesn't do that. These are premium Japanese cells which fully charge and are very long life and reliable. Cheaper then Sony batteries make them the best buy in really good replacement batteries for your camera. They also provide the vital readouts on your video screen just like the original Sony batteries too.
The batteries seem to work well but the charger is junk. The charger is clearly designed to be universal with a snap-on piece that can be changed to accommodate different batteries, the problem is that the snap-on piece doesn't stay snapped on very well and every time I remove the battery it falls off. It's also difficult to line up the battery leads and has actually broken the plastic contact separators and bent the metal contacts on all of my batteries. The charger no longer works at all so I'm charging all of my batteries via the camera's internal charger.
