i am only writing to warn people to pre charge batteries before first use. i dont know if some people do or do not do this but all batteries should be charged to its optimal level before the first use this is important to overall batter life, and charge capacitance. some people forget and have complained that the batter is useless or terrible. IF you do this first and the batter is still not up to its optimal level then you can complain.

I was forced to buy this battery for my alpha 55 SLT camera, since the battery that came with the camera lasted on for approx 400 shots (this was as mentioned by sony, no surprises) with 18-55 kit lens. I was going on a vacation and was not sure if I would have the option to recharge the battery regularly. The other features of the camera were nice so I just didn't care much about the battery life at that time. I am repenting now!! Now, with the new 70400G lens which I have purchased, the battery lasts hardly for 200 shots!!!!! Its my bad. I didn't give enough consideration to battery life. This is a good battery for point and shoot cameras BUT not for SLR/SLT/NEX cameras!! Please make note of this, before deciding to buy these cameras!!! I am learning it the hard way I have heard that sony is coming up with new models in the near future which have a different battery and give excellent battery life. But I am screwed!! After so much investment I can't even go to a different brand ($1000 for camera+$1600 for lens$80 for battery)

These batteries are a bit too expensive and do not last for long periods of time if left in the camera. purchased this one for a backup.

    Battery Life is terrible

    By 

    from Florida

    Comments about Sony Rechargeable Battery Pack:

    When I first purchased this camera, the battery probably lasted about 50 photos. I've had this camera roughly a year now and the battery life is down to 20-30 photos. When using a flash, the battery life numbers should be cut in half. Today after fully charging the battery all night, I took five pictures using the flash and the battery was down to 19%. It is ridiculous, please make an add-on battery pack for this camera. I don't normally post reviews but specifically created a Sony account here so I could post this.

    • none

      Comments about Sony Rechargeable Battery Pack:

      I have a NEX 5K for a year now. Purchased an extra battery soon after getting the camera. Just returned from 3 week in Africa and prior to leaving purchased another battery. This gave me 2 while on game drives and one back in camp charging. Most of the time, the battery lasted for 8 hours of of the 2 game drives. Only twice did I have to swap batteries during a game drive. No power at night to charge the batteries. Most of my photography is stills not movies. No matter what camera you own, digital photography uses battery power. One should have no less than 2 batteries to insure you have power during your days picture taking.

          Comments about Sony Rechargeable Battery Pack:

          It's the same battery that came with the camera and I haven't had any issues with short life. I bought this as a second battery for when I travel or backpack, but I rarely ever go below 50% on a charge, so I probably would have been fine without it. I've even done some time lapse shots, and the camera will outlast my phone, which I use as a remote control trigger, but I suppose that's not saying much.

          Comments about Sony Rechargeable Battery Pack:

          I bought my NEX-7 with an extra Sony battery. The batteries took about 4 hours to charge. I used the camera to shoot pictures out the window of the train from New York to Washington DC (about a 3.5 hr ride). By the time we got to DC the first battery was dead. I plugged it in to recharge in the hotel and we went out to lunch and to walk around tourist sites. by the time I got back to the hotel for dinner in the early evening, the 2nd battery was dead on about 200-250 shots (across both batteries). The battery is rated at 430 shots (CIPA) but in a month of shooting I've typically experienced about a quarter of that. Genuine Sony batteries cost about $50 - so carrying 3 of them is ridiculous. Neither my Nikon D300 nor my Canon G9 suffers from such ridiculously short battery life nor takes as long to charge.
