    When I click your link the page says that battery is for the G2. I don't see anything about the GH2 and that battery doesn't look like the one that came with my GH2.

    I think Panasonic must have made a mistake on the website and then fixed it. The last time I looked at that page it did include the GH2. Now tomrock is right, it only has the G2 listed.

    The G2 and GH2 have very different batts and wont interchange- I can verify that as I own them both.

    Has anyone tried the third-party batteries for the GH2 on sale on eBay? There's a lot being sold for prices ranging from around $12 to $20.

    I think the newer panasonics have firmware that locks out 3rd party batteries.

    I just got a few Power2000 batteries for my GH2 from BHPhoto and they work fine (although you don't get a remaining life indicator).

    I bought and returned Power 2000 batteries. Yes, these work fine except for not being coded and the fact that they are said to void the Panasonic warranty on the GH2. I am unwilling to gamble with the latter. I did find 3 more batteries by doing some caareful searching. I previously posted this so I do not know who, if anyone still has batteries. Your best bet is to search the movie supply houses and mixed dogital camera and computer supply folks. Try Abel Cine for one. The latter is a pain on your first order, but they carry the battery and they are honest. Good luck.

    Best regards,
    Tom

    I bought 2 Ebay GH2 knock-off batteries before my oversea vacation few months ago. They worked fine on my GH2, MOF it lasts longer than the OEM one. They're no chipped therefore: auto-shutoff, and battery metering doesn't work, but they served well as a backup power for my GH2.
