"Compatabile" battery does not work with Sony DSC W110 camera

Hi my partner just got this lovely camera and I treated him to an extra "compatible" battery (specified as suitable replacement for the NP-BG1) but the camera seems to reject it, announcing it does not work with non-original equipment or something and then shuts itself down immediately. Is this a common problem? Is there some way of getting around it apart from buying the branded battery?

    Thanks for that, Steve! I was about to get a generic car charger for the batteries too so I'd better not go there......

The Sony's are notorious for rejecting batteries from other manufacturers. I'm told their batteries are made with a security chip embedded within. The accessory battery companies try to copy the codes, but Sony keeps changing them. Another issue arises if you charge a Sony battery on another brand of charger. The chip gets it's code messed up, rendering the battery useless and unrepairable. Bottom line is Sony tries very hard to keep the accessory market from encroaching on their market.

I found a lot of chargers for this battery (and batteries too) by searching Amazon for "NP-BG1 charger". There are also cheap universal chargers, which will charge any of the small lithium batteries found in cameras and phones, on Amazon or eBay.

Dear all, After approx 1 year not using the Sony dsc w55 battery is completely empty and does not recharge after connecting to the computer with the usb cable which came with the camera. The camera was...


The DSC-W55 does not contain any charging circuitry. Connecting the camera to a computer makes the battery drain faster, since the camera must use juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). You need to use the supplied battery charger to charge the battery.

If you need a battery charger, here are some:
