No matter what you're looking for, we'll help you find it. Here's a simple checklist to help walk you through the process:
You may already know that you have a Sony Handycam or Canon VIXIA Camcorder, however, if you know the exact model number, it will make your search much easier. Typically the model number can be found on the camcorder itself or printed in a label behind the battery.
The camcorder model data might also be printed on the inside of the battery compartment. Look around to see if you can find any sort of name that sits next to the brand name (JVC, Panasonic, Samsung, Canon etc.)
Before you remove the battery, however, be sure to power down your camcorder first. You might also want to unplug the power adapter first.
If the make and model of your camcorder can't be found on the device itself, you can sometimes find the information on the battery.
Many online battery stores like Batteries.com will help you find a battery by model number, or will provide a replacement camcorder battery or a Factory OEM battery, giving you more options to choose from.
If you have all of your information ready, then you're ready to search for the correct camcorder battery. Fortunately, Batteries.com offers a smarter and easier search process.
Simply start typing the name or number of the product you need into the search bar located at the top of our site and it will return your results. Our search bar is the quickest and most accurate way to find all your battery needs.
It's always a good idea to look closely at the images of the battery you are about to purchase. If the battery connector doesn't look like the same connector on your current battery, this is probably not the correct battery for your camcorder.
If for some reason you don't have the old battery anymore or if you have already recycled the battery, you can always check the connectors on the back of the camcorder itself to see if they match the battery you are about to buy.
For example, the picture above is a Sony Handycam DCR HC-240. Look at the compartment where the battery would fit (labeled Battery Connector). If your new battery is shaped differently, has a different connection slot, or simply doesn't look like it will fit, it's time to contact the website call center to see if they can verify whether the battery is correct or not.
