I have an a77v, bought in 2012 and two original batteries. Regularly charged and neither seems to have lost any capacity.

Sounds about right to me. I've also got 3 that I cycle through my camera (one that originally came with my A350 over 10 years ago, one from the 6 year old A77 and a year old one from the 99ii) and I can't really tell them apart for capacity.
2 knockoff's that I got with a grip for the A350 only lasted 6 months before they died though.

hello all,

I got the non Sony batteries, charged them overnight...

... and my A77II is back alive!

It was worth spending $50.00 for an A/C charger and batteries. Even if the camera still would not work, I had to try.

So thank you to all for your tips and support.

Now all I need is being able to go out freely.

maybe in a year...

Stay healthy, fellow Dyxumers.

It fits where the battery should go, rather than plugging into the side socket?
How do you know which battery is replaces? Which model it fits?

Simply googling "AC-PW20 compatibility" returns: [COMPATIBLE WITH:] Sony NEX 3/5/7 series, SLT-A series, Alpha series, DSC-RX10 series, ILCE and more series. Such as for Sony Alpha NEX-5A, NEX-5C, NEX-6, NEX-7, A6000, A6300, A6400, A6500, A5000, A7, A7II, A7RII, A7SII, A7S, A7S2, A7R, A7R2, A99 II, DSC-RX10 II III IV Cameras.

Or one could use the AC-PW10AM, also designed to supply uninterrupted power to select Alpha DSLR cameras while downloading pictures to your computer, for extended work in a studio, or while viewing images when connected to your TV or VCR. The adapter does not charge the battery.
Compatibility
SLT-A57, SLT-A58, SLT-A65, SLT-A77, SLT-A99, NEX-VG10 camcorder
