The NP-FA70 InfoLithium battery is designed specifically for use with select Sony camcorders. It provides up to 3 hours of recording time, depending on the device, usage, and temperature — that's nearly twice the power of its predecessor, the NP-FA50. If you go in for long days of shooting, you'll appreciate the extended power the NP-FA70 offers. Plus, this type of rechargeable battery doesn't lose its capacity when partially charged or discharged, so you can freshen it up whenever it's convenient.

For compatibility information, please see the owner's manual supplied with your camcorder.

Product Research


InfoLITHIUM: The NP-FA70 battery exchanges data with compatible Sony video equipment about its power consumption, thus when used with InfoLITHIUM components it will calculate remaining battery life based on the actual power consumption of the equipment using it. If used with non InfoLITHIUM components remaining battery life will not be indicated.

Battery Life: The NP-FA70 has an estimated life of 150 minutes (2-1/2 hours). The battery life is based on continuous recording at 75° F for Sony camcorders with the LCD screen off and 2.5W power consumption. This is only an approximation and will vary based on actual power consumption of the component being used, manner of usage and temperature.

No Memory Effect: This battery has no memory effect, so it may be partially charged without creating memory problems.
