unless it's a fake.... i dunno :P
The seller on the amazon.ca link is for a company called Camaccessory with a 90% feedback rating.
Buyer beware I guess.
I'd rather take my chances with Dell.

Here's a pretty good thread discussing fakes and 3rd party manufacturers of the NP-FW50

Sony is notorious for having their products only work well with their ecosystem of accessories.
For example, many people were having issues with firmware updates because they weren't using official Sony USB cables.

I guess it comes down to the risk/reward of saving money vs how much you value your time in potentially dealing with trying to return a dud fake.

That......can't be a real thing. Proprietary memory cards, maybe, but just the cable? Those people are FUD-spreading trolls...

Personally I'd just buy one of the $13 Chinese ones on eBay ...
