Rechargeable camera battery question?
My older Sony compact ran on a couple of rechargeable AA sized batteries and a spare pair were supplied with it so that you wouldn't run out of power.
Not so with my newer Sony DSC-W350 ... no back up battery included (or even a camera case!) so I'm thinking of buying a spare.
The supplied battery (NP-BN1) is made in China and branded Sony and I can get a Sony branded one off Amazon for about £12 all in. Not bad, as they were about £25 when I bought the camera a year ago.
Similar unbranded batteries can be had on eBay for as little as £4. For all I know they could be from the same factories as the Sony but unbranded, or maybe they are inferior and wouldn't hold a charge?
This one is listed as 'decoded', which I am unaware of the significance of ..
Anyone know if it's worth spending the extra on the Sony branded item?
