Bought one of these through Amazon but it won't physically fit into my NEX VG10 - will go in the charger, but not the cam - there is a slight difference in the key lock plastic "shapes" compared with the supplied stock battery.

Looks like this might be a fake - onto Amazon - I remember it being cheaper than the usual £100 job

Just to add, it came through Navinet storefront on Amazon - several complaints of the same thing with Canon and Sony batteries AVOID these villains.

That's all you needed to know. There's no such thing as a free lunch, the vendors know that, - it seems that some of their buyers don't!

Sorry Paul, it looks like another instance of the old adage, 'if it looks too good to be true, it probably is'. I suspect you've got a good case for a refund though, because the goods are not fit for purpose, which is enshrined in the Sale of Goods Act.
