It's a spare battery

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am using this battery on my Sony A7 II camera. The battery life will last for around 350 shots. It is not that much long. Therefore, I always have a spare battery. Also, it will be recharged very fast.

Pros: Not good enough compared to other competitors

Cons: Fast recharging

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very happy with the short time that it takes for the battery to recharge. It seems to have a long enough time while in use. I have only used it for three weeks.

It does what it is supposed to do, which is power my camera.



Solid buy

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Alpha series cameras are amazing but go through these batteries like crazy. If you want a good days amount of shooting pictures and video, then you will need at least two if not three of these batteries!

Pros: Holds charge relatively well when not in use

Cons: Expensive but pretty much a required investment for the Sony Alpha cameras.

Product Research



Compatibility: The Sony NP-FW50 W-series InfoLithium rechargeable battery-pack is compatible with select Sony NEX hybrid digital cameras and Sony α (alpha series) DSLR cameras.

InfoLithium: All Sony InfoLithium batteries incorporate an IC chip that communicates with the camcorder to provide the amount of time remaining on the battery. This feature is known as the Accu-Power meter and the battery time remaining is displayed in the viewfinder or LCD.

Lithium-Ion: Lithium-ion batteries provide superior ease of use and recording time when compared to Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cad) batteries. Unlike Ni-Cad batteries, you can recharge them at any time without developing any memory effect.

Battery Life: Up to 330 shots. Actual battery life depends on a number of factors, including camera model, selected shooting options, and temperature.


Output Voltage: 7.2 Volts DC

Capacity: 7.7 Wh (1080 mAh maximum / 1020 mAh usable)

Operating Temperature: 32°-104° F

Weight: 2.1 ounces
