Given the not-so-hot battery life, a second battery is a must. Any road, I have a spare regardless of projected battery life. Just good practice if the photos are important to you.

Given the Panasonic announcement about third-party batteries, I'd stick with their label. The worst that can happen is you'll pay too much. I've experienced what happens when you pay too little for a knockoff. Not good. Bite the bullet; pay the price; buy from B&H.

Battery life is shorter than expected

Need to have a back-up battery ready to go since the longevity of battery life during camera use is not as I expected. If you are prepared for this, things will be OK.

    Comments about Panasonic DMW-BCG10PP ID Secured Battery:

    It is a genuine Panasonic Lumix battery. Exact same kind as we wanted to have more of for vacation. Using around town and home for now to determine battery life, etc and is working fine. Happy to have been able to have bought two more batteries now at reasonable price to take on European vacation next month. Have had Panasonic Lumix camera and Lumix battery recharger for more than five years now and the batteries last for many years with constant use and recharging. Have confidence in B&H to ship genuine product, not knock-offs. Will buy from again.

              Good Battery. I have used off-brands and they do not last. I heard that Panasonic sabotages other batteries in some way to make them not work with the camera. Don't appreciate that when the battery is very expensive for what it is.

                    This battery is identical to the one I received with my new Panasonic ZS-20 camera. Great pictures and accurate information to get the original Panasonic battery and not a knockoff brand.

                      I bought a couple of off-brand batteries for my Lumix ZS6 camera and was surprised at how much better they were compared to the battery that came with the camera. When I charged this new Panasonic battery, I was shocked at it's capacity. The original must have sat around for quite awhile in the Panasonic or [*] warehouse before I bought it. This new battery hasn't even been conditioned, but it has surpassed my expectations. I've had the camera on for over 3 days now and taking about 30-40 pictures every morning before work. It still has two bars showing! I'm trying to wear down the battery to do the next re-charge!!! The off-brands just don't cut it.

                              I bought an extra battery for my new Lumix DMC-ZS25 camera before taking a trip to Iceland. I was very glad I did. The camera runs out of battery after about ~250 pictures (if you are fast, less if you like to leave the camera on while you search for photos). I was able to change the battery while hiking on a glacier, seeing our 100th waterfall, and while on a boat in a glacier lagoon. I would have missed a bunch of amazing shots without the extra battery. I also bought a spare charger so I could charge one battery in the camera and one in the charger at night.

                                  Searched online for this battery and thought I had a good deal at another store. Turned out it was the old "bait and switch". Stuck with B&H, and got exactly what I wanted, promptly and effortlessly. The battery lasted through some long days during my trip to Europe, and I am glad I did not go with a cheaper no name brand.

                                      Worked great as an extra camera battery for our vacation. Lasted a lot longer than my older battery. Used the regular UPS shipping and it arrived the next day!

                                            Works well. Worthwhile purchasing an OEM battery rather than the multitude of knock off's available.

                                            Price was right and BH delivered to Canada in 2 days---Excellent service. Thank you!

                                              There are a lot of aftermarket batteries out there, many which are good on form and fit, but have slightly different voltage or amperage. While in many cases the slight variations don't matter, in some instances, only the exact OEM specifications will result in the performance you desire: it just works. This battery is one of the few where the aftermarket varieties differ from the OEM specs. I've tried a variety of cheaper alternatives, but this OEM battery is the only one that just works.

                                              I plan to never run out of battery power again! We do not use the cmera consistently enough to make sure that the battery is constantly at full charge. This second battery fully charged as back up solves our porblem of occasionally running low on juice. Exact match to the original product even after two years post original purchase. Thanks.
