New Battery

One of my legit Sony batteries seems to have died (getting the flashing warning signal when I try to charge)

I had been thinking of maybe buying another battery anyway; so I'll take this as a sign.

My questions is, show I go for the Sony Official battery?

Or what about the DSM Broadcast Power battery? I have two of these (came with another camera I bought) and they seem really good. High capacity and haven't had a problem with them. I can get one of these from an Irish company for a cheaper price than the Sony Official battery

Thoughts? Recommendations?

Hi Ronan, don't know about that battery you linked to but I have two DSM V-MOUNT batteries and are still going strong even after 7/8 yrs.

Re: New Battery

Thanks for the quick reply Anthony! I've had a good experience with the two DSM batteries I already have, basically just wanted to know if they were a reliable brand. Seems like its a positive review from you anyway!
