    Pros:
    It's compact, and cheap compared to an original Sony, It charges the BG-1 and FG-1 batteries properly....sometimes. Read below.
    Cons:
    On my travels (20 degC), I found both my orignal Sony BG-1 and a Pisen FG-1 batteries went flat prematurely. I noticed the nigh...

    Works reliably as advertised

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I use this in my Sony HX-9V camera. It fits without any problem, and works as expected. I'm glad to say the 'InfoLithium' feature (tells you remainng life in minutes) actually works. It charges in the camera just like the original BG-1 that came with my cam...
    Cons:
    No plastic battery case included. This is a minor con. The battery itself seems to be working well, even after 15 months, provi...

    Likely lower capacity

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I bought this as a backup battery for my Ricoh Caplio R6, which came with their DB-70 (3.6V, 1000mAh) battery. - It's similar in size and shape to the DB-70, and works with the R6. No complications here. - It charges in the Ricoh charger, again not fuss h...
    Cons:
    Over time, I have found that it takes way less time to 'fully' charge compared to the original battery, but in use, does not la...

    Workable Tx-to-FMS cable

    posted by Crafter65 on 01/31/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It works as advertised, and solves the challenge of connecting an R/C transmitter (Tx) to the PC for R/C flight training easily. Tested in WinXP, the cable interface is recognized as a Windows-compatible joystick, no driver installation needed. Tx trainer j...
    Cons:
    a minor point is that on the Futaba/Hitec 6-pin DIN trainer jack converter, pins 4 and 5 are NOT shorted by default. Shorting t...
