Battery Recommendations

Post by TimStannard » Fri Feb 01, 2019 12:36 pm

I'm looking for recommendations for third party replacement batteries for Sony NP-F series. Note these are NOT for use in cameras but in auxilliary equipment (lights, field monitor). Large capacity would be good as might need to power monitor for a 2 hour show.
Also - mains (UK) powered chargers for above.

Amazon have several brands of batteries and chargers (chargers all seems to be USB powered) but I am unfamilar with them, hence the question.

TIA

Hi Tim. My cameras are all Sony ones and use the same NP-F batteries. Apart from the genuine Sony ones I have had some called "Masione" bought on Amazon and so far these have worked very well and seem no different apart from being cheaper.
