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
