These arrived today. Batteries have a shelf date of 2028, which is fine, I’ll use them long before them. The packages say “For Brazil only,” which is weird. Also, although there is nothing on them to indicate they’re anything but Sony, the return address on the package was Fuji Novel Batteries. So I guess Sony batteries are made by Fuji.
I wrote to them and asked, so here is what I now know:
- Sony batteries and Fuji batteries are made by the same company.
- Sony is out of the battery business.
- Fuji batteries have no association with either Fujifilm or Fuji Heavy Industries.
- Apparently the parent company is FDK, the same company that makes Fujitsu batteries.
- Fuji Novel Batteries’ email is an aol.com address.
- They seem a little paranoid. When I asked them a second question they challenged me on why I was asking.
