5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the original
Excellent battery, easily as good as the original item from Sony but cheaper. I've not had it long but have only needed to charge it once and have taken nearly one thousand pictures with my Sony Alpha 450 using it and still have 30% battery life left. The original battery lasted for just over 1300 pictures so it looks like it will last a similar number of photos. Whether...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as a genuine Sony Battery.
Mine died after a few months only holding a charge for 10 minutes / 10 shots. Pay a bit more and get a genuine Sony battery.

I've not had it long but have only needed to charge it once and have taken nearly one thousand pictures with my Sony Alpha 450 using it and still have 30% battery life left. The original battery lasted for just over 1300 pictures so it looks like it will last a similar number of photos. Whether its longevity is as good as the Sony only time will tell but I'd have no hesitation recommending this item.

This review is from: Ex-ProŽ Sony NP-FM500H, NPFM500H, High Power Plus+ Sony Cybershot Alpha DSLR Replacement Lithium Li-on Camera Battery for Sony Alpha [See Description for Models] (Electronics)
Doesn't seem to last as long as the Sony Branded battery, but also at a third of the price of the Sony, so can't complain. Unlike some of the other non-Sony batteries, this one transmits remaining power percent to the camera, so at least you know when it needs changing.

I use this as a backup to the sony batteries that came with my cameras (I own an a500 and a200), and for that it is perfect.

*** update November 2012 ***
I now have three of the ExPro batteries, along with an A200, A500 and A77 Sony Alpha cameras. The ExPro batteries work with all three cameras and their associated chargers.

I am often using my A77 for video, and the ability to pack 3 spare ExPro batteries is a godsend: the A77 eats batteries when used for video, and you really need a lot of spare batteries to video any event.

Yes, the ExPros don't last as long as the original Sony batteries, but they are a quarter of the price of the Sonys, so the price-performance ratio works in favour of the ExPros.

Worth noting that the ExPros have one big advantage over the Sony batteries: they charge in much less time, so if you are covering something like a wedding, you can charge the batteries you used up for the church service in time to use them later for the reception.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works on Sony A65, 4 April 2012

This review is from: Ex-ProŽ Sony NP-FM500H, NPFM500H, High Power Plus+ Sony Cybershot Alpha DSLR Replacement Lithium Li-on Camera Battery for Sony Alpha [See Description for Models] (Electronics)
Charges on the sony charger and is recognised by the sony A65 camera,which displays a percentage charge remaining.I havent used the sony original battery or this spare enough yet to fully compare their performance but its looking good so far. A good spare battery at a fraction of the price of a sony original.
Update after a year of use.The battery lasts a similar time to the sony original before it needs recharging and holds its charge well when not in use.The 'percentage remaining' meter reading is reasonably accurate except the last few percent drop more rapidly than on the original,giving a bit less warning that it is about to expire.Still recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Works just fine in my A200, 11 Mar 2011
This review is from: Ex-ProŽ Sony NP-FM500H, NPFM500H, High Power Plus+ Sony Cybershot Alpha DSLR Replacement Lithium Li-on Camera Battery for Sony Alpha [See Description for Models] (Electronics)
Buying low-cost batteries for Sony cameras is a bit of a lottery, even if the batteries have exactly the correct type number, and even if they are (supposedly) 100% Sony-compatible.
The issue is that they need to be "InfoLithium", i.e. capable of communicating their remaining state of charge to the camera. If they cannot do this, the camera will refuse to work.
No such problem with this battery, which worked, straight out of the box, in my Alpha A200.
Great buy !!

I bought this for my Sony A200, used it at Thruxton for the BSB, took over 500 shots, switching off and on between races and reviewing shots on the LCD screen, the battery still shows 44% remaining so should be good for 1000 shots.

I wasn't holding much hope for a battery at this price but it's actually fairly good. It shows the percent remaining and it charges in the same time. I haven't used it fully yet put it seems to last quite well so it's doing well as a backup.

1.0 out of 5 stars Compatability issues make this useless, 12 Feb 2012
This review is from: Ex-ProŽ Sony NP-FM500H, NPFM500H, High Power Plus+ Sony Cybershot Alpha DSLR Replacement Lithium Li-on Camera Battery for Sony Alpha [See Description for Models] (Electronics)
After fitting the charged battery and switching on my Alpha 350 I can take pictures if I am quick, but within a few seconds I get the message:
For 'INFOlithium' battery only

Then camera shuts down.

I have rated it as 1 star only because this is the minimum allowed. Realistically, the battery is entirely useless.
