5.0 out of 5 stars Sony battery pack, April 3, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony NP-FV100 Rechargeable Battery Pack (Retail Packaging) (Electronics)
Though expensive, this is a must have item for any camcorder. No function or recital will last longer than the life of this battery. I used a Sony HD handycam in Italy and never had less than 50% power even after all day at the Vatican. Coupled with a 32gb memory stick you have the perfect no worry setup.

Just FYI. Beware of fake imitation Sony batteries. There are a lot out there and their cheap price will really draw you into buying it. I recently got a fake one. Although it's in a Retail Package like how they advertised it (but they don't say OEM or original or genuine), you will notice some difference from the original battery. The battery lasted long time for each charge though, so it still works, but I think once in a while, somebody will get a bad defective one.

Here are the differences I noticed:

- There are slight imperfections on how the plastic was molded into shape especially at the bottom area like the corners where you connect the battery to the camcorder.
- My original battery has an imprint of some numbers at the bottom. The fake battery does not have it.
- The cut of the infolithium sticker on top is not as exact as in the original battery.
- Some of the retail package is not the sealed type. You can slide the back paper in and out.
- The print or the graphics on the retail package is not as clear as the original or is blurry.
- And of course, no warranty from Sony.

This is just for information purposes. The battery that I got that I am assuming fake or imitation still worked.

No he meant, fake batteries have much erratic and inconsistent life expectancies... although he doesn't say, people pay PREMIUM like 3-5X more than replacement parts... when you buy from genuine manufacture, you pay 5X times the cost. Fake destroyes everything you pay 5X for. Otherwise, why not get a $20 battery? Sure it works - but for long? Can it keep a charge after 2 years? Work or not is never the issue, genuine or fake is the reason you pay 5X. $100 a battery, you better be sure what you're getting is genuine - HENCE his passion for his post.

Just FYI...im getting the same message on my sony but my battery came with my camera and is the original. I dont think this means everyone that gets this message has a fake battery. Ive used my camera for about 2.5 years and i think its just time to change the battery out. Its been giving me issues for about 6 months now and then today, I got that same error message. My camera came direct from the manufacture and was new in box so I can say that I recv. this same message on a orginal part. Just wanted to let everyone know. I was searching for info on the error message and came across this post.
