by CRUISI7 This is a joke, right?
Needs a powered docking station or something, I went to download my pictures after only using the camera, maybe 30 minutes total, and the battery dies! Can not even plug it into a AC power source to complete my download, now I have to sit here and twiddle my thumbs for 2 hours while this stupid thing charges.
What gives, SONY? the description says that this battery has a long life, did you make a bad batch or something? I THINK IT MAY BE TIME FOR ANOTHER BATTERY RE-CALL BECAUSE THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

I've read the reviews and TOTALLY concur; this battery has to be a gag gift with the camera. You definately will need an extra battery to get through a day of continuous shots OR just be very selective with taking your photos.

Rated 1 out of 5 by hotwils WORST EVER
What were they thinking when they developed this? The charge barely lasts for a few hours, and now, just one year after we purchased it, the battery is COMPLETELY dead. No charge whatsoever. VERY disappointing and will definitely have an impact on my next camera purchase, which will be within the next month, because I REFUSE to buy another cruddy battery for $50!!! RIPOFF

Rated 1 out of 5 by dazz worst battery ever
you cannot take more than 25-30 pictures and the battery is dead. i have an older sony camera and i can take 80-85 pictures before the battery dies.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mpcresse Terrible battery.
It doesn’t last long. It’s so frustrating. I’m constantly running out of power with this battery. I can’t believe Sony made such a nice camera like my Cyber Shot w/ such an awful battery. Seriously this battery should be recalled.

This is the worst battery ever. It is very unreliable as the battery life is much shorter than previous batteries by Sony.
I love the camera, the T700, however you will definitely need a couple of batteries as a back up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dezz Longer Charge Time ...
The battery doesn't hold charge for long, but it takes at least 2 hours to fully charge! You may need 2 spares to get through a one-day event. Unfortunately, we have no other choice but to use this particular battery.

Rated 1 out of 5 by gem06 Bad battery life.
I've had one Sony Cyber-Shot other than my DSC-T700 and I loved it. I love this camera as well but the battery life on it is TERRIBLE. I constantly have to charge it just to last one day. And I have to carry my charger with me wherever I go just in case the battery dies on me. I never had this problem with my other one before. I agree with some of the other reviews where this battery should be recalled or something. It makes me think that my purchase just WASN'T worth it.
