I have looked at various discussions re: the a6000 battery, but would like to re-open and get some members input. Having recently purchased my a6000 and getting to learn how it handles (with great satisfaction) I finally went on a photo shoot yesterday to put it though its paces. Temperatures started out in the low 50's and then climbed to mid-70's. I have virtually every unnecessary setting turned off, including review; I do very little chimping; Shooting 300 single RAW frames, a dozen or so 3-bracket HDR, a couple of 10 sec. videos; 3 or 4 Sony App captures over a period of 6 hours, (using both Sony and (proven under test by me that I could live with those results of no-name batteries I have purchased) - batteries 1 & 2 each lasted about 2 hours (100+ images) and #3 was at 52% when I finished. I carry 4 batteries at this time and am leaving for a 3 week trip to Europe tomorrow so I will have to suck it up and live with what I have, BUT does anyone have ideas/solutions for this dilemma, or is it just one of the joys of moving into mirrorless technology.
