5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says
Im pleased to confirm that it defiantly does work with my hx5.

The battery status does now give readings in minutes, but I don't know how accurate this is at the moment.

My gut feeling is that it lasts for slightly less than the original, but Im fine with that as the official Sony battery would cost much much more.

2.0 out of 5 stars powerful battery but does not work for me
ordered this as spare for Sony hx9v but despite being high amperage battery this did not work in the camera. it came up with incompatible battery inserted message ,it seems Sony has put something in the camera that will only accept original batteries for this model not sure about others in the range

Bought this for my HX9V - and like others - found it to be better than the original sony battery - shows time left - i got 72mins for video on a full charge.

This is the new chip battery this camera needs - so just buy it! Amazon is cheapest - ebay was £1 more!!

I bought this battery a few days ago from ABCProducts via Amazon
and from what I have seen so far, it charges up quickly, and it
works perfectly in my new Sony Cybershot DSC HX20V Digital camera.
This battery is just as good as the original Sony battery that
came included with the camera, and for a fraction of the price!
Get one now! Highly recommended!! For a fiver this is a steal!
For a similar battery in Jessops you'd be looking at about twenty
eight pounds, if not more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than described, 15 Dec. 2011
This review is from: ABC Products® Replacement Sony NP-BG1 / NP-FG1 / G Type Info Li-ion Rechargeable Battery for Select Cybershot Digital Camera / Handycam Camcorder (Models Stated Below) (Electronics)
Bought 3 batteries (they were really unexpensive) in November 2011, they have proven to be good quality, work very well with my Sony Cybershot dsc-hx9v without any problems and actually (nice and usefull feature) these ABC batteries are able to comunicate with the camera, showing the remaining charge in minutes on the camera screen. The standard battery included with the camera does not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extra power., 16 Feb. 2012

This review is from: ABC Products® Replacement Sony NP-BG1 / NP-FG1 / G Type Info Li-ion Rechargeable Battery for Select Cybershot Digital Camera / Handycam Camcorder (Models Stated Below) (Electronics)
Better than the original at a fraction of the price. Got this for my Sony HX5, works perfectly with the added bonus of on screen info of how many minutes of use left with battery, something that would cost a lot more normaly. A perfect companion as a spare for my camera, charges in the same time but seems to last a little longer. Speedy delivery, I cant say more, thanks Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars better then main brand, 17 Feb. 2013
This review is from: ABC Products® Replacement Sony NP-BG1 / NP-FG1 / G Type Info Li-ion Rechargeable Battery for Select Cybershot Digital Camera / Handycam Camcorder (Models Stated Below) (Electronics)
had this a while now, and use it more then the sony that same with the camera, slow to lose charge when in the camera (it needs to use some power so it knows you`ve turned it on)

and unlike the sony it will tell me how long i`ve got left in the camera, it`s good to watch, with GPS off it`s 1h50m turn on GPS you loose 20-30 min.

it`s one of those things you think you won`t need, then half way trough a day out, you wish you did have.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dubious Marketing & False Promises - Beware!!!, 10 Nov. 2012

Product details and description on Amazon state that it has 10 years warranty; however, when I ordered the product and received it, they offer just one year warranty. Despite escalating this to the seller, he has not rectified it till date and has done nothing to compensate the loss. Shabby customer service - don't recommend this seller. Buy at your own risk!

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work with my Sony HX20V, 18 Mar. 2013

I have no idea if it I got a bad battery or if it wasn't supported by my Sony HX20V. After charging for a few hours it simply didn't power the camera on long enough for the startup sequence to finish. The camera powered up fine using the original battery that came with it. Sent it back for a refund and ordered another one from another seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as the original Sony, 14 Jun. 2013

Slightly less capacity than the original branded battery - but what the heck - it cost a fraction of the originals price!
Holds its charge ok, fits charger and camera ok so I'm happy!
PS - it does display the battery time remaining on my Sony HX20V camera when using this battery - despite dire warnings from the Sony man.
