When I got these batteries, I decided to give them a "life test" in my camcorder by playing back video (which uses less power than shooting video) to see how long they would run. On each of the two BM batteries, I fully charged the battery until the light on the charger LED turned green, then put it into the camera and let it playback video until the camera stopped functioning. I then fully charged each battery and repeated the test.
Note that if you were shooting video, the batteries would not last as long as they do during playback - also with my camera you might shoot with the LCD screen or the internal viewfinder enabled which would also make a difference, so these "battery life" times should be used for comparison not for absolute usable time in the field.
I did it this way because it was easily repeatable. I played the same video footage for all tests.
On the first battery, I got 3 hours 20 minutes on the first test, and 3 hours 34 minutes on the second test.
On the second battery, I got 3 hours 46 minutes on the first test, and 3 hours 49 minutes on the second test.
I then tried the same test with my 5-year-old and very used genuine Sony NP-FV70 battery pack. It ran for 5 hours, 42 minutes - more than 50% longer than either of the BM batteries.
Additionally, I noticed that when playing back video that the BM batteries showed "0 minutes left" on the camcorder while playing back for the last 45 minutes to an hour of operation - but I left the camcorder running until it just stopped.
Additional info - The camera indicates an approximate lifetime for the battery, so I noted that at the start of each test.
Battery 1: Test 1: 246 minutes Test 2: 284 minutes
Battery 2: Test 1: 269 minutes Test 2: 333 minutes
So I guess I'm going to keep these since they were so inexpensive - basically $15 each, but I'm not going to depend on them to last very long recording video... I'll just use them if my sony battery quits on me.
I don't know if these may improve with time (both tests showed a little better results on the second test over the first), or if perhaps they were made with cells that were not all that fresh, or if they might have been subject to bad storage conditions at some time, but the lifetime results seemed disappointing - considerably less than a 5-year old Sony NP-FV70.
Additionally, it is really awkward to get these batteries into the provided charger, although they did fit into the camera pretty easily. The Sony batteries click nicely into the Sony charger.
I noticed the BM charger has only 2 pins wired, (one on each end of the connectors to the battery) whereas the equivalent Sony charger has 3 pins wired. This charger does come with a car cord, so you can charge the batteries while in the car, but I didn't try that function.
I recently filmed an event that lasted almost 5 hours. For well over the first half of the event, I used my one stock battery. When it died, I used up both BM batteries in short order, and had to revert to my power cord for the last hour and a half or so. These things will drain completely in less than an hour when I'm merely lensing shots with the camera on...not even recording! The meter will show them like 60% full one moment, and then 8% the next. They are worthless.
The charger is cheap plastic, but it works. In fact, this wouldn't even be a problem for me, if the batteries worked halfway decently. They are not up to spec in any way. They're hard to put into the camera, and even harder to fit into their own charger. I feel like tossing them.
First Order - Low 4 star rating.. Came in packaged well, quick shipping. Charger feels cheap but does the trick fine. The batteries work well in both my Sony AX33 4k camcorder as well as my NEEWER CN-160 which was the big draw to stocking up on these batteries. The reason for the low rating on first batch was the fact that brand new out of their packaging the only could hold a 92% charge which gave my camcorder a recording time of 100 minutes. The biggest pro was the price, for only a fraction the price of a brand new Sony was worth the buy for me.
Second Order - Low 2 star rating..Just like the first batch came in, Packaged well, and quick shipping. I took a chance that I got a bad first batch and bought these. Only to find out the first batch I bought from them was better... These 2 batteries brand new out of the box hold low battery power. One holds 60% for a recording time of 65 minutes and the second holds 70% at recording time of 70 minutes. Once again the only reason I even gave them any stars was the price factor. I'd have to pay over twice their price to get 1 new sony. So for both orders I still paid less than 1 new battery from sony.
So all in all if you want to save money and don't mind switching out batteries alot faster, then these are the ones. If you use these batteries for professional use I'd prob dish out the extra cash for longer lasting batteries. For reference on the actual sony battery I got with Sony AX33 was a floor model so it got alot of use but still charges to 100% and has 135 minutes of recording. Hope This helps, I'll probably post a review on my youtube channel about these
