Extra Battery

Crutchfield customer from Sequim, WA on 5/14/2019

When ever I get a camera I always get a second battery. While discount brands are cheaper they have never measured up to the Sony. Lots more expensive, but worth it.

Pros: Reliable Long charge life

Cons: Expensive

Needs just a little more capacity.

Pros: Compact size.

Cons: Battery stamina Seems to be ok, but defiantly need to keep a spare handy.

can't beat sony quality

tiredad from Tulsa, OK on 6/6/2013

Aftermarket, third-party batteries are readily available and much cheaper that sony-branded product. However, "your mileage may vary" applies especially well to electronics like camera batteries. Aftermarket batteries we've tried, even those rated to have larger storage capacity, simply don't have the charge life or service life of the factory sony batteries. If they're half the money, but last half as long in service life or run down twice as fast... so did you really save money? We've been tempted by low cost, but the third-party products simply don't last as well for us plus the reality that their use could void a warranty. So, we've gone back to sony batteries in our sony equipment and are happy doing so.

Pros: factory built, factory recommended, factory performance. no surprises

Cons: up front cost is higher than third-party product, but safety and reliability are worth something.

A very good battery

semmla from New York on 1/25/2012

I was surprised the battery last quite long. I took about 400 photoes plus about 10 minutes on average movies and the battery still was showing 75%-80% charge left. More then enough for me. The Camera is Sony SLT65V. Quite happy with its performance

Pros: Last very long, charge time not long at all.

Cons: none
