I received this battery the day I wanted to use it and luckily it only took about 2 hours to fully charge in the matching Expro charger.

This battery powered my Panasonic SD900 for almost 3 hours at my nieces birthday party and was still going strong. I recorded about 12.8 Gb ( at 17Mbps in XA mode I estimate it's about 7.65 GB an hour so that's about 1HR40M I must have on my card) This was non continuous shooting. The cameras battery timer ( which does work with this battery contrary to what it says in the Panasonic manual about non Panasonic batteries )said there was over 30 mins. remaining at the end of the day. In contrast, my Mini DV camera which I had mounted on a tripod ate its way through 3 batteries in the afternoon !

Baulking at the cost of the Panasonic battery was one of the reasons I put off buying a new camcorder for a year. The availability of reasonably priced batteries combined with the ever falling cost of SD cards, means I can now film all day ;-) I will probably invest in a new USB hard drive to keep all my HD footage on :-) One thing I would say about this battery is that the fit is not 100% as solid as the OE battery. Despite my best efforts wiggling it about, the battery did not detach or loose electrical connection to the camera though. Despite this minor niggle and in light of the 2 Year warranty, I can heartily recommend this product.

I bought this battery as the one which comes with my X800 only records for about 1 hour. I didn't want to be in the middle of filming just to find the battery has fully discharged. This battery does as it says on the tin and to date I have no issues with it. It works the same as the original giving accurate time recording left in the battery. Gives you that extra security of knowing you won't be stuck for power when out and about recording.

This is not an original but it does the job and is affordable. However with in 3 months of little use the performance was getting worse. The company demanded I send it back to them for inception, and said it it's not faulty I will have to pay them to re-deliver it to me. I thought I am being cheated at this point, as the battery was still working, but was obviously not performing as it should be. Eventually I returned it and was send a new one. Hopefully the replacement will hold longer. Time will tell.

The VBN260 battery failed after two months - these things happen - & I was very pleased with the company's prompt replacement.

Posted the faulty battery to them on a Tuesday, received the replacement on Thursday. Since then, no problems with the battery which is very good value.

All in all, excellent product and service from ExPro, so I recommend them highly.

Battery charges fine and the Panasonic HD camera takes it fine, can read the battery level etc. It just doesn't hold a great charge. I have a Panasonic originalof the same size and regularly use if for 2-3 hours without any worry of it running flat. This weekend was filming an all nighter so bought this as a cheap backup, used it first and it lasted less than two hours - this was on-off filming with and without LCD panel. Similar filming with the Panasonic battery saw it last for just over three hours. The smaller battery that came with the camera lasts for around one and a half hours.

So, good value for money but considerably less uumph than the originals

I have used this on a holiday involving much use of my X-900 camcorder. The Battery appeared to work just as well as the Panasonic original which I also purchased.

This battery does not like to be charged on camera on a Panasonic HC X920. It will flash fast every 0.5s once near full charge, which according to the manual means there is a problem so it's not 100% decoded/compatible in terms of on camera charging but works on. It showed about 2h 30 mins charge capacity via EVF when charged via camera. I only charged it via the camera to check performance as the wrong charging unit was sent.

The correct LCD charger arrived today and I'm more confident charging this on that directly to avoid any issues with overheating or damage to the camera. The "full" charge from the camera showed 2/3 full on the LCD indicator on the charger. It took a further 23 mins of charging to show complete. It still showed around 2h 34 mins on the camera with EVF so not too bad at all for the price.

I've yet to test real world performance in terms of how close to the 2h 30+ mins I get from it but its hopefully going to get me out of not any situations where I run out of power from my two official 130 batteries.

Worth a look if you're looking for a cheap spare battery.
