4.0 out of 5 stars Good battery for the price, November 29, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kodak KLIC-7004 / Fuji Np-50 / Pentax DL-I68 Compatible Li-Ion Battery (Accessory)
I bought the battery as the back up for my new Kodak Zi8 HD camcorder. It arrived pretty quickly and works well. I then checked its capacity by continuing recording with the Zi8. It lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes with a full charge. Not bad. As a comparison, the fully charged stock battery can record 1.5 hours. In conclusion, it has about 80% capacity as the stock one but considering its price, it is still a good deal.

Fantastic. Short, concise and provides me with exactly what I wanted to know-- in this case, the battery's longevity. Thanks!

I think he was commenting on the batteries charge capacity, the batteries longevity would be totally different. The longevity would be how many times the battery itself was able to accept a charge and then discharge and over and over again before it no longer accepts anymore charges.
To test that would take an awefully long time with also a lot of variables such as were they full charge cycles or did you charge it sometimes while only semi-empty etc... This info isn't even supplied on name brand cells.
However, I suspect the longevity of generic cells is probably shorter than name brand cells in general, I suspect the factories making battery cells produce thousands of different sizes for many different companies besides the generic ones they sell also.

I've heard in general that Japanese made cells are produced using better materials than cells made in other countries so that might help determine longevity but at these cheap prices, it is a gamble worth taking in my opinion.
I'd rather chance it for a few bucks than pay ten to twenty times the amount to have a name brand on it with a warranty.
Chances are they both will last just as long in the end, having a higher capacity mAh which will last longer between charges is however worth paying a little more for. But from what I've seen so far online, that isn't guaranteed with generics from seller to seller.

The info he supplied in his review was how long the battery ran his device compared to his OEM cell, and that is more of an indicator of the cell capacity, ie. mAh rating of the battery.
I hope this clarifies that difference some. Thanks
