    I purchased this for my Casio Exilim S880 digital camera.

    My original Casio brand NP-20 battery was still working great after 18 months, however I needed a second battery for some lengthy video projects. I was hesitent to purchase a non-name brand battery, since in the past I have had poor results with generic batteries. However for the about 1/2 the cost, I could get a battery with 2x the power. I decided to take the risk.

    This battery does perform as advertised. I have not yet ran out of juice while shooting. My estimates rate this battery at approx 2 hours of continuous HQ video film time – confirming that this battery does have 1050mAH of power (compared to the 630 mAH for the Casio brand battery).

    Since I’ve only had this battery for 30 days, I cannot yet determine how this battery will hold it’s charge over time. The Casio brand battery I am impressed with. Even after 18 months, I can still shoot HQ video for 45 minutes nonstop. Initially, the max battery life was approx 1 hour.

    This battery meets all of my expectations and deserves 5 stars for the value and performance. I recommend it.

    — UPDATE —

    I recently had two chances to test this generic battery’s capacity in one single video recording. On both video shoots, the battery lasted only 1 hour (highest video resolution, manual WB, anti-shake off, Casio Exilim S880). This is the same performance of a new Casio brand battery.

    It appears to me that the 1050mAH power capacity rating is not accurate. My Casio Exilim 630mAH battery also lasted 1 hour at the same camera settings when new.

    This new battery holds a “green / full” battery rating for over 45 minutes, then quickly drops to “yellow” and “red / empty”.

    I would reduce my rating to 3 stars if Amazon.com allowed me.

    I use this battery in a Casio Exilim S880. With the original Casio battery, I never worried about charging the battery. It would get charged every couple of weeks when I would download pics. With this battery, I have to constantly be aware of the charge. I bought two of these and and now figure the two together equal one Casio battery.

    This Japanese Replacement Battery performs as well or better than the original. At this price, I got 2 and carry a charged spare in the camera case at all times. No more worries about running out of power!!
