Why Sony can't make a battery with better life is a mystery

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great long lasting for still shots on my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300 camera.

Pros: Long lasting for still shots.

Cons: Doesn't last long when your using the movie option.

The nice thing about having an extra battery is to be able to take more shots. The unfortunate thing about this one is that the camera must be used to charge the battery. This will allow us to use two batteries during the busy time for photo shots - if needed.

Pros: fits the camera

Cons: a tad expensive, but that was expected
