    Has anyone found any after market batteries that work with the GX7 (UK based) please.

    It seems Panasonic originals are either very hard to get hold of or stupidly priced. There is one merchant who is advertising the BLE9EB battery, saying the following:

    For Clarification with regard to the GX7 Model the camera is fitted with BLG10E Batteries
    However Panasonic Recommends Both the Original BLG10E and the BLE9EB for the GX7:-

    **** Please note that the BLE9EB is the Battery Panasonic Supplied In Their Own Genuine Panasonic GX7 Accessory Kit Which They Gave Away in the UK With Early/ Pre Orders and Includes the DMW-CGK24KK and a DMW-BLE9EB Battery ****
    These are Therefore Officially Supplied and Recommended by Panasonic for Use in the GX7 Body


    Is this true and do they works properly as I note they are only 940ma, where as the supplied DMW-BLG10E battery was 1025ma ?

    The Wasabi BTR-BLE9-JWP battery is a good replacement battery for the GX7. I've had no problems with it. It has an amp-hour rating of 1100 mAh.
