Caution on Sony "genuine" batteries for A55/33 on eBay
Oct 9, 2010

I bought a battery on eBay from an international seller stating that it is a genuine Sony battery for the A55/33. It turns out in the camera it looses power contact occasionally. I almost thought it was a problem with the camera, but I put in the original battery and that works fine. Unfortunately, I purchased a 2nd one also, and couldn't wait for the 1st one to arrive for a trip. The packaging and battery seem legit (though the eBay battery label is a little different)

So even if I am out $29x2, hopefully that saves someone else! The seller does seem to have good feedback, so I'll contact them and see what they say.
