Think it's a battery season for me. Now looking for a camera battery for a Sony Camera. It takes NP-BG1, sony has it for $50, which I would rather not buy it.

ebay has a ton of them, so as Amazon. So anyone has any other suggestions? Of course, quality and low price are preference smile

An example below:

BH Photo has a house brand called Watson, which is generally well regarded...

Thanks, I believe battery is toast since it's a few years old.

Also, when I plug in the charger, yellow light comes one but within 30 secs no lights shows up. Does it mean charger is gone or it's battery?

I'm a big fan of PWR+. I have bought various batteries (mainly for a laptop) and adapter cables from them over the years. Only good things to say about them. My last dealing with them was emailing them that one of the prongs in a 3-prong cable came loose. They mailed me a replacement for free.

https://www.amazon.com/PWR-Charger-Batte...s=pwr%2B+NP-BG1

THis link is for a battery AND a charger unit that plugs into the wall, for $18. Free shipping.

Define 'few'.

Typically a Li-Ion battery should not be completely dead so soon, unless it was stored depleted for very long and continued to deplete itself to the point of no return.

Hard to tell. Depending on how smart/dumb the charger is, if it detects a battery that is depleted too much, it may consider it unsafe and refuse to charge it.

Can you check the battery's voltage with a DMM? If the voltage is below 2V, I would throw it away.

I've used the Chinese batteries from Amazon with no issues.

I believe 7-8 years.

Let me check voltage of it, I think it might be 0 but worth a try.

If so, then I can be a bit hopeful I guess!

It has 3 terminals and I checked by keeping one constant.

One voltage is 3.76 and other one is 4.12 V

Does it mean charger is bad?

+ and - should be the two outermost terminals (not the center one). What voltage are you getting there? If it's 4.12V, then the battery is pretty much full. When you put the battery in the camera, does the camera work? If not, then maybe your camera is broken?

Yeah, camera does work and take pictures and all. Tested it just now, but battery is draining out really quick. Does it mean bad battery? I believe camera is 8 years old.

Yes, after 8 years, the battery has probably lost a lot of its original capacity. I would replace it.

Ok, thank you thumbsup

I am going to test this battery see how long it'll last and then probably order a new one!

eBay ones are really tempting...
