Fits my camera,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony NP-BG1 NPBG1 Replacement Battery for Sony Cybershot DSC-H10 / DSC-H20 / DSC-H3 / DSC-H50 / DSC-H55 / DSC-H7 / DSC-H9 / DSC-HX5 / DSC-N1 / DSC-N2 / DSC-T100 / DSC-T20 Digital Camera (Electronics)
I was worried if it would fit my Sony H-10. I wanted to buy a new one when my original gave way after just 2 yrs of use. So I did not want to buy Sony batteries now. At the low price, I bought two, just for back up. This one should keep the charge for about 45% longer.
The worry I have: It is 3.6V, when the original is 3.5V. I know that should not make a big difference, especially as the actual voltage when fully charged is higher and goes down with use and so 3.6 is just the average.
Also, no company name on it! Generics without any company name scare me. Is it illegal? Is it so poor quality that the company would not give its name to it? What you see in the Amazon picture is exactly what you see on the battery, on BOTH sides! Looks shady to me. If I had known this before I would have gone for a little high priced one but with a company name on it and have a peace of mind. I thought Amazon would never sell a product with absolutely no company name on it. Poor quality batteries can even damage your electronics. I think I will update this post a few months later to let you know if I had any problems, but with no company name who am I even targeting with this review?
UPDATE: June 2013
Positive: It has still not damaged my camera in any way.
Negative: It fails to keep charge too long. And less than the original battery that came with the camera that has much less capacity. Means I need to keep recharging it often. But then it is cheap and good as a backup battery.
However next time I am going for a better one.

Now that many months have passed, what is your opinion of the battery? How does it work with the Sony DSC-H10?
