A great alternative
on 9 February 2012
I first of all purchased the regular Panasonic battery from Amazon, but it was never delivered. Apparantly, it was damaged in transit and the courier (Royal Mail, I believe) sent it back to Amazon before it was ever delivered to me. Amazon provided a first class service as they issued a credit note before I had to chase up the delivery and were able to let me know about the problem almost before I realised there was one. Anyway, this made me look a bit further and I found an alternative battery from this supplier at around one third of the cost of the original Panasonic one. It is identical in all respects to the original Panasonic device and unlike some others, does not have a 'flying lead' to connect to the camcorder. I have had it a couple of weeks now and it does everything in exactly the same way as the Panasonic battery which came with the product. All at one third of the cost - what's not to like?
