Takeaway: Works with Sony a6300, last 30-45 mins each when recording 4K, charge quickly.

You'll receive the dual battery charger, two batteries, and a cleaning cloth. The charger is made of plastic and has two charging bays. They are labeled CH1 and CH2 which correspond to the left and right sides of the LCD display. On the back of the charger is a built-in USB cable to power the unit that stows neatly in the bottom; it measures about 7" long. At the top of the charger is a microUSB input port for use with a longer cable or backup in case the built-in cable fails. It takes a couple hours to charge two batteries fully from completely dead.

Compared with the NP-FW50 battery that came with my Sony a6300, these batteries are physically identical, but the capacity is supposedly higher at 1500 mAh versus the OEM 1020 mAh capacity. However, I didn't find that they last much longer than the OEM battery; I get about 30-45 mins of continuous 4K recording time from each battery. I've been using them daily for a little over a month. For charging, just remember to press the battery all the way into the bay until it clicks. While charging, the LCD lights up and there will be an animation for each battery's progress. When charging is complete, the LED shuts off and the batteries show all four bars. Both the batteries work fine in my Sony a6300 as replacements. These batteries have been really helpful in extending my shooting sessions, and I can charge two batteries (including my OEM one) while shooting with the third.
