Sony NPFW50 Infolithium Rechargeable
Extensive recording of video on Sony Alpha 55 requires a reliable battery with a long life. I selected the Sony factory battery because of years of professional experience in professional photography and in teaching photography in college for over 40 years.

right battery for the wrong camera or vice versa
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!!

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)

Its a battery, not much to say but Adorama has a great price for an OEM product. Buy more than one though as you'll need them.
This was purchased merely to have an original manufacturer spare battery for my Sony NEX-3N. It works as expected. Charging takes place within the camera snd is rated as taking "290 minutes" in the manual, quite a long time. However, I have always found off-brand batteries unsatisfactory so I buy the camera manufacturer's. Price for this one was a bit lower than I expected.
I took my Sony NEX6 camera with this spare battery to Yellowstone national park. This battery came in very handy during full day of photo and video shooting.
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.
This is an OEM repalcement(actually an extra) battery for my sony NEX-7.. no problems works as it should.
Bought this as my backup battery for Sony NEX-3N. The battery takes longer to charge but I guess I can live with that. I am spolied by higher battery life from Nikon and quicker recharge.
Simply another quality Sony product.
Great original battery at very good price. Looked at knock offs however I need to be certain that my batteries always work. This is the gold standard.
This Sony OEM LiI battery appears to be exactly the same as is supplied with new NEX7 cameras. It has the same capacity and recharges in the same amount of time. It fits the camera and charger perfectly. The slow recharge of these batteries is a function of the low-current charger that Sony supplies with the camera.
This is a Sony brand, and should be reliable.
