What is the difference between an OEM camcorder battery and DuracellDirect's camcorder batteries?
We carry replacement Duracell Direct camcorder batteries for Minolta camcorders that will meet or exceed OEM manufacturer
specifications. All aftermarket Minolta camcorder battery products come with a full one year warranty, and carry
various UL, CE, RoHS and FCC safety certifications. Aftermarket camcorder batteries are built with high quality
materials and newer technology which makes them longer lasting camcorder batteries, safe, and have an advantage over
OEM Minolta camcorder batteries.
What different types of Minolta camcorder batteries are there?
There are several different types of aftermarket Minolta camcorder batteries that you might find on DuracellDirect.
These different Minolta battery chemistry types are: Li-Ion (Lithium Ion), Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium), Li-Poly (Lithium
Polymer), or NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride). Li-Ion is a fairly common camcorder battery chemistry type for Minolta
batteries. Each Minolta camcorder battery chemistry type has advantages and disadvantages, such as longer life per
charge, longer overall life cycle, weight, size, faster charge time, or stability. All four battery chemistry types
are universally accepted in Minolta camcorders.
Why do Minolta batteries have different capacities?
Minolta camcorder battery capacity is measured in “mAh” (milliampere-hour). Many different factors affect camcorder
battery capacities: in particular, camcorder battery cell size, voltage, wattage, and even the battery chemistry type.
The more electrolyte and electrode material there is in the camcorder battery cells, the larger the capacity will be
if the chemistry make up is the same. Minolta camcorder batteries with larger capacities will always last longer than
camcorder batteries with lower battery capacities.
How long will my Minolta camcorder battery last?
Your replacement Minolta camcorder battery should last a few hours for recording and playback. Recharging your Minolta
battery will take one to three hours to reach a full charge, with 80% battery capacity being reached the first hour.
Minolta camcorder battery lifespan should last for about three years and can handle over 500 discharge / charge cycles.
How safe are Minolta camcorder batteries and batteries in general? How do I take care of my Minolta battery?
