FV100 is much larger size than FH40
from Irvine, CA
Comments about Sony Black Rechargeable Battery Pack:
FV100 is much larger size than FH40, it hits your face when peeking through the view finder of the camcorder.

Quality, long lasting & heavy
from Sand Springs, OK
It is expensive, but it lasts me days. I purchased it to record me completing jobs I do for eventual use on a website. It lasts so long it is ridiculous. You will get over the price quickly. I also purchased the travel charger and it works well, no problems.

This battery is a must ...
from San Antonio, Texas
This battery is a must for those who need to keep filming without changing out batteries often. I wish sony would cut a bit of the weight though without sacrificing power.
Works for Me
from Cheyenne, WY
I bought the battery because I do a lot of outdoor photography. I want something that I don't have to worry about, that I can charge in the morning and have it good for a day or more in a national park. The v100 is rated for eight hours for three times the cost of a v50 which is rated for two hours. It's better than lugging a couple of v50 batteries around and forgetting which is up. I would not consider modifying a battery or using anything which is electrical and defective. I was going to put "weight" down as a "con" but figured that is part of the energy which I bought. I've used Sony video cameras for 20 years and not had a battery problem.
most powerful battery in V series
from Kenosha, WI
Bought two of these batteries to use with Sony HDR-XR500V Handycam. NP-FV50 battery lasts 1.5 hours and the NP-FV 70 lasts 2.5 hours in this Handycam. This battery (NP-FV100) lasts six hours, a great comfort when trying to record a day's worth of events.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comment on prior poster perception.
from Woodland Hills
The new V battery may look like the old H battery.One could force the old H battery into a new camcorder, with or without filing off the tab, and it will work for a while OK, e.g. for 5 minutes when the time comes to update the remaining battery state, then the message: "Cannot operate with this battery" will appear and the camcorder will be shut down. So the idea to use old H battery where newer V battery is needed will not work on newer camcorders..

Ridiculous scheme from Sony
from NY, NY
This battery NP-FV100 is exactly the same as the older version NP-FH100 in size, power, capacity according to the Sony's official spec. the only difference is the notch where it slides into the camcorder so the newer model camcorders won't work with the H batteries and forced to buy this same old V battery with different notch so it slides in to the newer camcorder models. I'd just file off the notch on my old H battery.
