Alternative batteries and battery chargers for Sony EX1/EX3
on Aug 29, 2016 at 7:25:47 pm

Looking to get another few batteries and charger for my Sony EX1, saw a few 'non-Sony' BP-U30 and BP-U60 batteries online, most in the $60-150 range. Anyone have any names or brands to avoid, and ones that worked just as well or didn't break the bank?

Cheers,

Tom

probably depends where you are - i got sme off ebay from a LOCAL source, though of course they were made in china. i've heard good things about http://www.betterbatt.com.au/

i'm not worried about using unbranded batteries as long as they're from a local source so i sue them;-)

I've been using this battery from Switronix for several years with my EX1 and EX3 and it's been great. When new, they ran around 7 hours even with an LED light plugged into it. Of course, they have slowly declined but I still am getting almost 6 hours. I have 4 of them. The downside of the battery is that it has to be plugged into the dc port with a small cable but no big deal for me.

I notice that it is discontinued but a newer model is out. I've not used it but this is the link.

Good luck, hope this helps some.
