    Hi Folks,
    Anyone tried using a third party battery on the Panny G1? Which one would you recommend? I am not sure how good the Chinese made ones are. I see there is a Energizer version for €40 but don't know if it is worth the price.

    Thanks. :smile:

    Hi. I purchased one of those cheaper chinese, but didn`t receive it yet. I have one for my FZ-18 and it works very well tough.

    I don't see the need. My batteries last an amazingly long time.

    Recently with the last firmware update of the G1 the support of BLB13 ( generic) has been dropped only the ones with the chip BLB13E are still accepted. Be careful before buying the battery check your firmware ( this thing started with the 1.5 firmware).
