The SmallRig NP-FZ100 is a bit different from many of the other third-party batties that are available for Sony cameras. It’s not only a replacement option for the original but also improves the quality of use and capacity of Sony’s own. This replacement battery is designed to work seamlessly with Sony cameras, employing the same physical specs to ensure a snug fit.
However, where the SmallRig version excels is in its higher 2400mAh capacity, compared to the 2280mAh found in Sony’s own NP-FZ100, offering extra minutes for both video and stills. The big feature here, however, is the Direct USB Type-C charging—simply plug in a cable into the battery, and you can expect a full charge in around 2 and a half hours.
But it’s not just about functionality; it’s about practicality, too. With its distinctive light blue finish, the SmallRig NP-FZ100 is easily distinguishable from your other batteries, making it easy to locate in low-light conditions and in the pit of your kit bag.
