OK but capacity overstated
on 10 January 2014
I bought one of these as a backup for my Panasonic TZ35 camera. I chose this supplier because their battery was claimed to be 1250 MaH - 25% higher than the standard and more expensive Panasonic version. The advert said it would meet or exceed the Panasonic specification.
The battery arrived promptly, so good marks for service, and indeed it has 1250 MaH printed on it.
It works OK in the camera and after testing it with continuous movie filming in the camera, it achieved an average of 104 minutes of filming vs 108 from the Panasonic battery. I repeated the test three times, each time charging it to full, using the same charger as for the Panasonic.
So, it is adequate, it works, and fairly reasonable value, but 4% less capacity than the Pana battery and presumably nowhere near the claimed 1250 MaH.
Not really impressed by the manufacturers honesty nor the description in Amazon.
