This Pisen battery fits perfectly in my Sony HX-5V. The original battery that Sony ships with this camera is a NP-BG1 (910mAh) which lacks the info lithium feature. The Pisen FG1 (1000mAh) reports the number of minutes left, so it is an info lithium type. Packaging of the product is good, so there was no damage during shipping from Shanghai.
The only con I could think of is that cover side of the battery is plastic instead of metal of the original. Also all text on the battery is in Chinese, but I think that is kind of cool.
The battery was drained when I received it, so I had to charge it for first use. Most of the times batteries have some capacity available to test it after opening the packaging.
This battery is value for money and actually replaces the NP-FG1 with a slightly higher capacity. The info lithium feature works with my HX5-V as well as my standard charger.
