Is ok as a backup battery
on 13 March 2011
Got this a few weeks back, used it about 3 times from fully-charged to camera (TZ10) shutdown and battery full recharge. Battery life seems good, I shot about 75 minutes of HD video today before it cut out, haven't compared it with the Panasonic battery but I'm happy with this. My main gripe is the battery indicator constantly shows 3 bars for about 70 minutes and then down to 2 then 1 and then shuts off all within about 5 minutes (shooting HD video). Maybe this is a feature of the Panasonic firmware which only updates the status on original Panasonic batteries.
Apart from that, it is a good price and as a backup battery well worth buying.
