    I bought this battery since I was concerned with the battery life of the stock battery. We were using our camcorder for our wedding, and I wanted to make sure all the moments got captured. Our friends took tons of video all day, and the battery lasted the entire time!

    though it claims to have slightly longer usage time than the high-capacity 3rd party brand that costs a lot less, this Panasonic battery does not in fact last much longer in use. It's fine, but next time I need a high-capacity replacement, I will probably buy that low-cost alternative.

      Comments about Panasonic VW-VBK360 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (3580mAh):

      My Panasonic HC-V500M is very much a bang-for-the-buck camcorder with the usual compromises that come with it. The battery that it shipped with, which kept it at a certain price point, would always run out on me at the worst possible moment, and this replacement battery's substantially longer life eliminates that issue entirely. It indicates how much charge is left, and I have had ample charge for most sessions, even when traveling. This allows me to now use the original as a backup, although so far it hasn't been required. It also recharges in a reasonable amount of time--less time than it would take to drain the original, so theoretically I can shoot forever! Now I shoot whatever I want for as long as I want, giving me more choices to edit down.

            Used this heavy duty battery to record a school play. After using it with zoom action as well as panning, was able to cover over two hours of showtime. To my surprise, I still had many hours remaining although I didn't need it. Never had to worry about running our of juice.

                  Needed up to two hours of reliable continuous recording time using Panasonic HDC-TM90. So far have used up to 1.5 hours with lots of reserve left. I wish this was the battery that comes standard with this camera.

                        I used this battery solely at the EAA Air Venture Air Show in Oshkosh, WI, shooting everyday events there. I had two other -VBK180 batteries, but never had to use them! This battery did all the HD camcorder shooting during the day, and was recharged at night for the next day.
                        It was a great purchase at a good price!

So far it has never run out of a charge during days where the video camera has been on, off, taking video and pictures for up to 12-14 hours (not on or running the whole time). Battery was even dropped once onto a tile surface and sustained no scratched, dents or other damage.

                            [...] Battery was as expected and as described. It's a little bulky, but again expected out of an extended life battery. One thing I'd like to have seen was an offline charging option, downside is you have to charge the battery through the camcorder.

                              I've bought a lot of 3rd party batteries for my devices off of auction sites and got burned every time. They never work as well as the real deal. You should always have a spare battery at hand. I decided to spring for this very expensive Panasonic battery this time.

                              It works as advertised - twice as long as the stock battery. But be warned, it's very big. I have a small camera bag. If your camera has a snug fit with the stock battery you'll likely have problems fitting it with this big one.

                              If I had to do it over I'd probably get the standard sized battery to save some money and have a better fit. On the plus side the extended shooting time will be nice to have. You should decide which is more important before you buy.

                              The 3580mAh Panasonic battery is a lifesaver if you need serious recording time. It takes a while to charge (first full charge) and it's worth the wait. My Panasonic camera manual gives one piece of excellent advice regarding battery life: Even if the camera is OFF, the battery still operates the instant start feature (which drains the battery). Remove the battery between recording sessions for much improved life. I also purchased additional batteries as well as a battery charger so that I am free to move around and not run out of power.

                                This battery was just what the doctor ordered. I am able to plug this in, place my video cam on the tripod and film away while kids play games and I never miss a minute of the action. [...]. Thanks!
