    When I recently bought the Panasonic HDC-HS300 I only had the standard battery which worked well for about 1.5 hours of mostly continuous use. Unfortunately I was quickly running out of battery-life near the end of the game which meant I had to cut off a lot of the game to save battery-life for the end-of-the-game ceremonies.

    Fortunately I will never have to worry about that again! I get more than 3 hours of continuous use from the VW-VBG260 and never have to sweat it out near the end of any event. I keep the standard battery with me and charged just in case the event goes WAY over the normal time. If I have to use the standard battery I put the big one on the charger and would have plenty of charge time once the standard battery ran out.

    A bigger, extra battery is an absolute must!

    There are no cons to owning this battery. It's a battery, it lasts a long time and is made well. What else is there?

      Comments about Panasonic VW-VBG260 Replacement Lithium-Ion Battery Pack:

      Ordered the battery because I misplaced the original. I wanted an original Panasonic battery and not a generic brand. Found this at the best price at b&h. Shipping was fast and product arrived as specified. The battery color was a ligher gray than my black camcorder, but it charged up fine and works great. Thanks.

            I bought this battery as a back up. I video weddings and lately I have had several outside weddings with no electric hook up. So, I needed an extra battery for such situations.

              Gives me over 5hrs of recording time on my Panasonic SDR HD 80. Beats the price I had to pay for similar product in South Africa.It is a genuine Panasonic Battery. For same value I would have had to purchase a pirate battery.

              Great acquisition and now you can spend almost 4hr without thing in battery status. is enough for a 32gb SD card full.
              Negative point is the size that can have problem moving your thumb but its OK

                  This brand name battery is small and weighs next to nothing. Easy to pack and use.
                  I have yet to drain the charge so I can't comment on run time.
                  I mention price is expensive but compared to other brand name cameras, the Panasonic has most camera for your dollar.

                  Comments about Panasonic VW-VBG260 Replacement Lithium-Ion Battery Pack:

                  Some might think this battery chunky or whatnot. However the original battery dies fairly quickly. I had to get an extra one for my camcorder. So when I was planning to get this other one, I thought it wouldn't make sense to get another one with the exact same size because I will not be able to record everything in one time. This battery is the perfect size. Not very big but last much longer than the original one. at the same time you can have your original one being charged while using this one anyways. I think the beauty of this battery is its duration and size compare to the other two models available. This fits me very well.

                              I charged this battery once thus far it has performed excellent. It fits my camera perfectly. I bought a third party battery a couple months ago and it was so loose I thought it might fall off. [...] There's no substitute for the name brand for some things. This is my first Panasonic camera and so far so good.

                                Its always great to have at least one big battery in your camera package. That way you can use the one that came with your camera as the reserve when the big one finally dies and is recharging. Good times!!

                                Comments about Panasonic VW-VBG260 Replacement Lithium-Ion Battery Pack:

                                I bought this battery to supply longer recording time for my Panasonic HDC-TM700 camcorder. I get about 2 1/2 hours continuous recoring time from it, although that is just a guess, as so far I have been recording in short segments during a vacation tour in Florida. The battery fits well enough to the camcorder, and I can still use the viewfinder with this larger battery installed. It is recommended to give a much longer recording time than the standard supplied battery.

                                  It is awful you become without battery in any situation, so for traveling and for being in situations where you can not charge the battery it is necessary go take extra batteries along.

                                      The TM700 camcorder comes with the VW-VBG130 battery, which only lasts 1.5 hours. That's simply not enough recording time for the events that I record. This VW-VBG260 battery lasts a more practical 3.0 hours. I highly recommend it.
