Rejected by NEX-5N,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony NP-FW50 Lithium-Ion 1020mAh Rechargeable Battery (Electronics)
The battery I bought from the seller Excess Outlet does not work with Sony NEX-5N, although the model (NPFW50) is the same as the one that came with the camera. I got it for $15, so I guess don't buy that cheap next time.

The reason these "After Market" NPFW50 Rechargeable Batteries do not work with any of the SONY NEX series DSLR cameras is because they do not contain the information chip within the battery pack that the "Sony" brand/labeled NPFW 50's have, so that the camera can communicate with the battery .... Most of the people in camera sales do not know this. They might as well be selling shoe laces for all the camera/photography equipment knowledge they have.... they're there just to make a sale! Amazon as well as many others advertise thse "after market" batteries as "SONY" ... They in fact are not! So if they do not say SONY on the battery, Don't buy them!
