The Sony battery pack is built with Sony’s usual rigorous manufacturing process, matching the same quality and durability found in its industry-leading pro cameras.
The BP-U60 battery pack weighs in at 350 g and takes 170 minutes to fully recharge using the Sony BC-U1 charger, so it won’t overload your shoulder or your kit bag to keep a couple of these charged and ready to go for longer shooting stints.

The BP-U60’s recommended charging station is the Sony BC-U1 Battery Charger, offering fast charging for Sony BP-U90, BP-U60 and BP-U30 battery packs. The BC-U1 is multitalented: it can either charge a single battery pack, or its built-in AC adaptor can provide 12 V DC output to run a Sony camcorder from mains power.
If you’re looking for a replacement battery pack with even greater capacity, the Sony BP-U90 offers 85 Wh compared to the BP-U60’s 56 Wh. As with the BP-U60, the larger and heavier BP-U90 has a handy one-touch LED battery indicator built into its casing.
