I received this camera as a git, and I noticed about 2 weeks after receiving it the battery always died very quickly. I missed so many special moments because the camera would die just within 30 min after I charged it. Now it comes to a time where I need to take my camera on a 2-3 month trip and I am squirming because I need about 6 batteries to last me for a few days. How did this happen??

Needs a powered docking station or something, I went to download my pictures after only using the camera, maybe 30 minutes total, and the battery dies! Can not even plug it into a AC power source to complete my download, now I have to sit here and twiddle my thumbs for 2 hours while this stupid thing charges.What gives, SONY? the description says that this battery has a long life, did you make a bad batch or something? I THINK IT MAY BE TIME FOR ANOTHER BATTERY RE-CALL BECAUSE THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

I've read the reviews and TOTALLY concur; this battery has to be a gag gift with the camera. You definately will need an extra battery to get through a day of continuous shots OR just be very selective with taking your photos.

This is the worst battery ever. It is very unreliable as the battery life is much shorter than previous batteries by Sony. I love the camera, the T700, however you will definitely need a couple of batteries as a back up.

The battery doesn't hold charge for long, but it takes at least 2 hours to fully charge! You may need 2 spares to get through a one-day event. Unfortunately, we have no other choice but to use this particular battery.
