Rated 2 out of 5 by Customer117 One dud battery
I'm looking for my 4th battery in one year. The first one did not hold a charge from the day I got it. I was not smart enough to know something was wrong. The backup that I got when I purchased the camera is now doing the same thing, and this camera is only used a dozen times a year. I thought Lithium batteries retained the charge and had a longer overall life.
Also the price is a little steep.
I'm going to try a replacement brand at half the price and see what kind of performance I get.

I have had my camera for 6 months and I love it, but since I've owned it I have hated the battery life, every time I go to use it the battery is dead. they tell you not to keep it on charge, but to me ,I'm ready to. At least then I would know if it has life. They need to make some changes in the battery BIG TIME.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nycom92 Very good battery
I've owned an Alpha A330 for 1 month now and have taken my kids pictures for sports (tennis/soccer) and a parade (band). I bought a "long-life" battery that is "similar in every way" to the FH-50 (made by Premium Tech). Darn battery quit after 30 minutes of intermittent Live View and it would not come out of the battery compartment! I was able to carefully wiggle it out until the spring took over and pushed it out. I was able to insert the original Sony NP-FH50 without any problems. I've requested a replacement from the vendor, but specified I only want an original Sony battery, not the Premium Tech. The "other" battery did not even warn me that the power was going. Do not settle for inferiority. I won't anymore.

You would think that the battery from prior model would work - but no - found another way to get more money.

Thanks so much for your prompt service. I received my battery for my Sony A-380-L right on time as was told to me.
