This battery is exactly the same as the original sony one, i was worried about buying it as some look like there massive in comparison to original batteries, but this is great, functions exactly the same as an original and no extra cables.
100% recommended especially at half the price as an original.
I was looking for a higher capacity battery than the one shipped with my HDR-CX11e and was shocked by the price of the Sony branded ones. I took a bit of a chance on this product and it has exceeded all my expectations. It's the same battery that Sony use (branded differently) and therefore has no compatability issues. There are no dangling or seperate cables to worry about, and it's the same size as the lower capacity battery (NP-FH60) supplied with the camcorder. Delivery was quick and service first class.
I bought this as a spare for the Sony DCR SR35 Camcorder and it fits perfect and there are no extra wires like some compatible batteries. All the normal functions report on the camcorder screen - 243mins after charging. This is the same as a Sony NP-FH70 for less than half the price - Excellent!!!
I had to find a NP-FHXX replacement for my Sony camcorder as the original one (NP-FH40) can't be charged any more. I want to find one that's affordable and works.A few years ago I brought a 3rd party replacement online but when turned on, the device said the battery is not genuine SONY and won't operate. Turns out, these type of batteries are what Sony called "infoLithium" types which has a built-in chip so that your device knows whether or not the battery is genuine. I am very happy to tell that this Ex-Pro replacement battery must have the chip and passes the check, so it works just like genuine batteries, only for less than 1/3 of the price! I am very happy and recommend this to everyone.
Also, to my knowledge NP-FH40,NP-FH50,NP-FH70 etc are of the same voltage and differs in volume and size, so if your device does not have a battery size constrain (for example, digital cameras), then you can go for the higher model for longer operation time!
It works just the same with the original OEM battery, the capacity is better than the original, you can charge on camera or you can buy mains charger. It wad also fitted with chip, it will not be under or over charge, battery level is also working. Excellent price.
