This is a very popular battery found in many Sony Product. I am one of those who use this battery in my now "old" 3.2 megapixel Digital Camera...it was also used in my even older Sony Video Cam.

I bought a third party one a few months ago I paid $39 or something around that figure. I found it at Courts Super Store in Suntec City. Not bad.. I did not want to buy the Sony original as it was like $130 for one!. I only need it to power my old Sony digital camera since I am letting my mom use it. You might call to check with Courts to see if they have anymore. I bought the last piece I saw hanging at the battery and accesories shelf.

suprised to hear courts selling OEM sony, as with all sony batt, its illegal to sell it since they patented the info-lithium thingy... more over camera will reject batt. not made from these technology, so if the camera dont reject it means patent infringement...
