Rechargeable Battery Pack
Must have for Alpha owners!!!
I have 4 of these original Sony batteries. I also use third party batteries too and they don't last as long as the Sony's. I can get between 400-500 shots with my A57 and A77. Save yourself the headache and spend the extra money on the Sony batteries.

I bought 2 extra batteries last May (2012) and one will only take a charge up to 56% and the other up to 34%. Very disappointing.

Not compatible with a55
The compatibility chart provided on this website lies. This battery does NOT fit a55 series of cameras, trust me I found out the hard way.. :( This is not a real product review, but more of a warning to others.

I purchased an Alpha 65 about a month ago. Amazing camera! Only drawback was this battery. The stats say it will only take 560 images on the LCD screen on a charge. This is bad for me, seeing as how I bought this camera to move into shooting weddings. Where you will be literally taking thousands of pictures. So I was kinda bummed thinking about how many extra batteries I would be buying. Well I shot a model shoot today for over an hour. Took 593 images and still had 93% battery left! Absolutely awesome! So I'm just saying that this battery will power through taking a heck of a lot more pictures than what Sony states. Hope this helps anyone on the fence of buying the camera or this battery!
