Comments about Sony InfoLithium W Series Spare Battery Pack:

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.

Battery Life NEX cameras

By rkreiss

from Maryland

Pros

  • Long lasting, fast charge

Cons

  • none

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony InfoLithium W Series Spare 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.

      PRE-CHARGE BATTERY BEFORE USE

      By MaysEffect

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Sony InfoLithium W Series Spare Battery Pack:

      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.

      Why does everyone say this battery underperforms?

      By Puma12

      from St. Cloud MN

      Comments about Sony InfoLithium W Series Spare Battery Pack:

      First, let's cut to the chase. This battery at first will be pathetic. It will only give you 40 to 50 shots. You have to use the battery for several weeks before it "burns in" and reach 200-300 shots per charge. Used this battery for a year now. Still no capacity loss. People who reviewed this battery, didn't use it long enough. Shame.

      Horrible Battery

      By SparkleP

      from New York

      Comments about Sony InfoLithium W Series Spare Battery Pack:

      This has to be the worst camera battery I have ever owned. I would never buy this camera again because of the battery life. What is the point of selling a $600.00 camera with a useless battery. If I buy an extra battery, that extra won't hold a charge. So what do you do when you need to use your camera for 2 hours? Take your Kodak.

      right battery for the wrong camera or vice versa

      By ProfessionalAmateur

      from Wichita, KS

      Comments about Sony InfoLithium W Series Spare Battery Pack:

      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)
