JVC BN-V408 battery is compatible with V416 and V428. Usually,
V408 is rated as 2-hour, V416 as 4-hour and V428 as 6-hour battery.
V408 is the smallest and lightest, thus best for short trips. V428 is
the largest and heaviest, and is the best when filming longer than
4 hours is required.
Occasionally, these batteries are referred to as BN-V408U BN-V416U
and BN-V428U. The "U" at the end does not imply anything. These are
just different names for the same batteries.
For an average user, V416 would be the best choice from runtime vs
weight perspective, and V408 would be the best from size perspective.
If you need to film more than 4-hour shows then V428 would be the best choice.
Generally speaking, V428 extends too much from the camcorder to make it
look a bit "unaestetic". If you never plan to film more than 4 hours without
an access to an AC source, you should definitely get a V416 battery.
