        Comments about Panasonic VW-VH04-K Battery Pack Holder Kit:

        3 times per year I attend Bible Study Assemblies and Conventions, which last all day long. This makes it so that a six hour battery will fit my camcorder and the battery charger that came with it.
        Cord is "just" long enough for me. I usually just set up my tripod, but could carry while record and hold it up over my head (if I wanted too). I am average in height.

        Comments about Panasonic VW-VH04-K Battery Pack Holder Kit:

        I thought this was a battery charger. I don't see the point in lugging an extra pack/cord to video. Even a larger battery is less hastle.

        Best Uses

        Comments about Panasonic VW-VH04-K Battery Pack Holder Kit:

        I assume you need this for the biggest battery (VW-VBG6) for the Panasonic HDC-TM700 (or similar models) because that model's viewfinder doesn't extend out far enough to see into it with the biggest battery mounted on the camera. If you are recording outside and you must or want to use the viewfinder instead of the fold-out LCD screen than the battery holder is essential. For recording outside in cold climates the holder allows any size battery to be kept warm in your clothing near your body with the two-foot cord. But if you are recording anywhere where you can use the LCD you probably should spend the money on more useful accessories like the wide angle converter (still very useful to make this already widest angle of view camera even wider, approaching that of super wide angle big pro cameras' $20,000 zoom lenses) or a directional microphone with a windscreen. The only consolation for the outrageously high price is that the carrying case can be used for other things, like small point-and-shoot cameras, etc.

          Comments about Panasonic VW-VH04-K Battery Pack Holder Kit:

          The battery that came with the camcorder would only work for 1 hr. So I bought one that will run for 4 hrs. I didn't know, at the time, that I needed this Battery Pack Holder. Shopped around and found this one for a really good price. The holder works great when using the tripod. Had plenty of battery power for our daughters voice recital.

              Very nice surprise to have received an official model. Instead of a counterfeit "made in china". One thing that would be interresting to specify. Quality materials, ergonomic bag. [...]

              I wanted a battery that will last all day...
              I purchased this device along with the super extended battery and works great.... for all day shooting.

              I highly recommended.

              COLD WEATHER? SUB-ZERO SOLUTION

                Comments about Panasonic VW-VH04-K Battery Pack Holder Kit:

                Knowing the OEM battery won't perform in extremes of cold, this item was employed to relocate the battery under the clothing, keeping it warm and happy. 4ft length is just enough.
                Only problem is that the wire gets very stiff in sub-zero conditions.

                Used to enable a larger capacity battery to be used with my camcorder. The thing I liked about this product was the price I landed this product to my door for about $350nz cheeper than I could have got it in NZ. I have nothing negative what so ever to say about the product it preforms a treat.
