V-mount Batteries
Improved Cycle Life
(BP-GL95A/GL65A)
The BP-GL Series prolongs cycle life over its predecessor
model. Utilizing highly durable cells, it retains 30%
higher capacity at 250 cycles than its earlier model.*1

	Actual battery life may vary based on different operating conditions and settings.
Intelligent INFO Function
(BP-GL95A/GL65A)
The BP-GL Series is equipped with a professional INFO
function that shows the remaining capacity, charging
time, and charge cycles on INFO-compatible
equipment such as Sony chargers and camcorders.
Battery Remaining Display
on Viewfinder
When using the BP-GL Series with a compatible
camcorder from Sony, users can see the remaining
capacity on the camcorder’s viewfinder, in terms of
percentage (in 10% steps) or voltage. When using
the BP-L Series, the remaining capacity is indicated in
terms of voltage.
BP-GL Series and BP-L Series Lithium-ion Battery Packs come
with a durable V-mount mechanism, which provides high
compatibility with a variety of Sony professional
camcorders, some portable VTRs, and video monitors.
The BP-GL Series boasts high power in a compact and
lightweight body, plus intelligent functions.
The BP-L Series is characterized by long life.
Four-step Remaining Capacity
LED Display
The four-step LED display on the side of the battery
provides an accurate and at-a-glance indication of
remaining capacity.
High Reliability, Compliant with
International Transport Regulations
BP-GL and BP-L Series lithium-ion batteries are
designed to be highly safe and reliable, compliant
with the various international transportation
regulations.*1
They are therefore suitable for the
long-term shooting associated with travel.
*1
	All of these lithium-ion battery packs have a rated capacity of less than 100 Wh, and
can therefore be transported as non-hazardous lithium-ion batteries. Related laws
and regulations are subject to change. For detailed conditions regarding the transport
of battery packs, please consult your respective air transport company.
