They are the largest of the Sony NP-f type batteries so they do have heft compared to the gear I use them for but I preferred not having to carry spares in my initial purchase of these types of batteries. Charging takes a few hours each so I'll probably but a dual charger.
I placed both of them in a Cowboy Studio 360 LED camera light after charging them in my own charger after it showed 100% charge on both of them.
These two batteries powered the light at full power for over 4 hours. I took the batteries out and checked the charge level on my charger. showed 25%.
I didnt check out the included charger, probably works OK.
How can you beat this price / performance combination, and with their own charger to boot!
Do a search for "Watson Dual Charger" for this type battery, its the one I used to charge these batteries.
The batteries arrived quickly and were easy to open. Simple instructions and sparse packaging kept things simple. It took a couple of hours to charge both batteries completely, but considering their heft, I was not surprised. Once charged, I attached one to my YN360 and realized that the added weight made it hard to comfortably use the light wand. So I then switched it over to my video light and it was perfect. It powered my light on full power for the entire evening that I used it. I fully expected to need to use both batteries during my project, but I was pleasantly surprised that I did not have to.
So far, I have not has any issues with the batteries or the charger. The price is very reasonable and I might just buy another set so that I have backups. I would certainly recommend the DSTE batteries for anyone who has purchased one of Yongnuo's light systems that requires a Sony style NP-FXXX battery. Just keep in mind, this is a higher capacity battery and therefore is larger and heavier that some of the other batteries. If you want something lighter, I would go with the DSTE NP-F550 which are great.
It does take a while to charge though. Not sure if that's specific to this battery, charger, combo, or if it would be with any np-f970 batteries.

Well they last about 5 hours on half power for a 12 X 12 LED light panel which was pretty great. I will warn you thought these take a LONG time to charge. Don't think you will be quickly charging them and cycling them while the other ones are being used...You will need more time. I was not keeping close track....but I think they took maybe about 10 hours before the green light came on.
I only used them on one shoot so far so I will update everyone in a few months.
*Update #1 - I had another long shoot yesterday and the other set of batteries that I bought lasted around 5 hours as well so they are fairly consistent so far...again you will need a really long time to charge these....but I am happy so far.
I will use them for awhile and do another update when I get to using them consistently.
Update: After writing this review they sent me a new charger free of charge. This new charger appears to work correctly and I have updated my ranking accordingly. However, it does not appear to fully charge the batteries. I left them on the charger over night and it appeared to have a full charge. When I placed the batteries on the Atomos charger it appeared that they only had 3/4 charge. I'm not sure where the issue is, but the Atomos charger appears to do a better job. These chargers might be useful if you need to charge more than one battery at a time, and then place the partially charged battery on a different charger to top it up (Atomos in my case).
Thank you to this vendor, amazing customer service. If you have one of the small 7" monitors like Lilliput from Amazon, these batteries and charger are what you need. You get 2 large batteries, a charger that works on AC ( you plug it into the wall ) and they also supply you with a car adapter to charge in the car using the cigarette lighter port.
Shipped fast and very nicely packed
