Essential travelling kit for your Lumix....
on 1 October 2014
Being already a satisfied user of Ex-Pro batteries and chargers with other cameras, I felt no need to look any further when I bought a Lumix TZ60: indeed, this package could be seen as almost essential bearing in mind that the battery on a TZ60 is charged in the camera, effectively taking it out of action during the process.
Since the Lumix is intended first and foremost as a travel camera, chances are that most users will need to carry at least one spare battery - there's nothing worse than losing the perfect shot on the trip of a lifetime because your power's down. With this package you not only get a spare battery which to all intents and purposes seems to work identically to the one originally supplied, but also a separate charger of a particularly neat and light design with removable interchangeable plugs to suit UK, USA or Euro-style sockets. You can pack whichever you need for a specific trip and leave the other plugs behind: better still, there's also a car adaptor so that you can charge your spare on the move, if necessary. All this means that the camera can always be available, even when you need to charge a battery.
A couple of nice extra touches: unlike the image which was linked to the product when I was writing this, the battery has a white sleeve, making it easy to tell which is your original battery and which the spare. Similarly, the battery holder on the charger is blue, which makes it easy for me to differentiate between it and the one I have for my bigger Lumix, which is black.
Lots of positives, no negatives. Thoroughly recommended.
