I've owned an Alpha A330 for 1 month now and have taken my kids pictures for sports (tennis/soccer) and a parade (band). I bought a "long-life" battery that is "similar in every way" to the FH-50 (made by Premium Tech). Darn battery quit after 30 minutes of intermittent Live View and it would not come out of the battery compartment! I was able to carefully wiggle it out until the spring took over and pushed it out. I was able to insert the original Sony NP-FH50 without any problems. I've requested a replacement from the vendor, but specified I only want an original Sony battery, not the Premium Tech. The "other" battery did not even warn me that the power was going. Do not settle for inferiority. I won't anymore.

Does not work!
I bought this battery with my new HDR-CX130. After about 60 seconds the camera said "use only compatible batteries" and shut off. Considering that everything is new, I am very disappointed.

Good Low Capacity Battery
from Glasgow, KY
Comments about Sony Black Rechargeable Battery Pack:
This battery is standard with many of Sony's camcorders. Life is about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Good when size and weight is a factor when using camera.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Long Life Battery
Battery has over 2 hours of capacity when used with CX-760 & 900 cameras. Because of larger capacity, it takes longer to fully charge on my Travel Charger and longer for the charge status progress indicator to show status.

Good on NEX 6 NP-FW50 - 2 batteries simultaneously
from Cumming, Georgia
Simultaneously charges the NEX 6 camera battery (battery inserted in the body) and a loose spare NP-FW50 battery: 1) Connect the (NEX 6 supplied) mini-USB to USB cable. The mini-USB cable end to the camera body and the USB cable end to the BC-QM1 charger's USB slot. 2# Insert your spare NP-FW50 battery into the BC-QM1's charger cradle. When inserted, the battery mounts "sideways" at the bottom of the charger #i.e. ,when viewing the charger plugged into a wall AC receptacle#. The NP-FW50 battery looks tiny in the charger. Three yellow LEDs indicate the charge time - all 3 lit means your battery is fully charged. Fully depleted the NP-FW50 took a little over 3 hours to recharge. Charger is fairly large in a camera bag. But, because it can charge batteries from a number of other Sony mini digi-cam and camera products, it is useful when upgrading an existing camera system. #Believe it charges the Sony Alpha camera's batteries - check out all the other batteries it can charge#. Regardless of the charger's somewhat larger size, it travels everywhere in my bag. The BC-QM1 is a well-built and thought-out product. It is well worth the money - it charges 2 batteries at once, charges reasonably quickly and works for a number of Sony products.
Bought a new PJ380 and this battery the day before I had to film. It would NOT charge in the camera and was essentially dead which screwed up my filming plans. The smaller battery that came with the camera worked fine, but I NEEDED this battery for a longer shoot. This is the second time that a much needed Sony battery failed me upon purchase under difficult time constraints.
Always have power
from Atlanta, GA
Got this battery in a camcorder bundle. I am very impressed. Got 2 full hours of recording out of it with lots of camera interactions. The battery still had more power to go... Would recommend if longer run times is what you need.
from Washington, DC
Great product; small, compact and provides an excellent charge. Great for travel.

Thanks so much for your prompt service. I received my battery for my Sony A-380-L right on time as was told to me.
POOR Battery Life
from Calumet City, IL
I have had my camera for 6 months and I love it, but since I've owned it I have hated the battery life, every time I go to use it the battery is dead. they tell you not to keep it on charge, but to me ,I'm ready to. At least then I would know if it has life. They need to make some changes in the battery BIG TIME.
One dud battery
from Detroit, MI
I'm looking for my 4th battery in one year. The first one did not hold a charge from the day I got it. I was not smart enough to know something was wrong. The backup that I got when I purchased the camera is now doing the same thing, and this camera is only used a dozen times a year. I thought Lithium batteries retained the charge and had a longer overall life.Also the price is a little steep.I'm going to try a replacement brand at half the price and see what kind of performance I get.
