      I needed a backup battery for my Panasonic HMC 40P video camera and didn't want to pay top price for a battery that may or may not work with my camera. The sales person was helpful in guiding me to the VW-VBG6 Lithium Ion Battery (7.2V, 4840 mAh). It came in time for a shoot I had scheduled at our church, charged quickly and worked like a charm. The battery life is more than sufficient for my uses. I must have recorded two hours straight and still had more than half the battery left.

      I bought this battery knowing there was a chance that the Af100 would hate it. When i got it, charged it up and put it in, it worked! So I was pretty happy about that, only now everytime I try to use one of the two I bought i get "This battery cannot be used" and the camera shuts down. I'm still trying to fathom (outside of the obvious) why Panasonc is so uptight about 3rd party batteries but be aware this will NOT work in the AF100. It will reject it, fortunatly I have a monitor that takes the d-series batteries and can be retrofit to use these E series, so Im not Totally SOL.

      Comments about Watson VW-VBG6 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 4800mAh):

      Recently purchased this battery to replace a long-lasting, finally failing similar 3rd party battery for my broadcast HIDef camcorder. Started out strong on first use, then depleted within 45 minutes. Should last MUCH longer. Now, perhaps its life will extend with successive charges, but right out of the box, a bit disappointing. Will see if performance improves with recharge routines.

              Not sure about the longevity yet, but has the same amount of time on it as my Panasonic battery, and a lot cheaper.

              I got 2 of these for the af100ap. They are lighter than the panasonic made ones. Hold just as much time on them. For the price difference id buy these again.

                      I purchased the VW-VBG6 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 4840mAh) by Pearstone for an upcoming trip to a desolate region overseas where dependable charging stations are less than dependable.

                      I've had the opportunity to test the battery for a local shoot in Cincinnati this week and the unit made it through the entire three hour shoot with plenty of charge remaining.

                          I used this battery with the Panasonic AG-AC7 camcorder. The battery was fully charged upon purchase which meant I didn't have to bother with any "charge for X hours before first use" which was fantastic and incredibly convenient. THe battery lasted about 8 hours of nonstop recording. I would definitely recommend this product.

                              Works well and is reasonably priced compared to the Panasonic model

                              Good as a back up only.

                              Bateries are always rated inaccurately. Tey rate them high with the view screen closed but do not tell you that with the screen closed and only using the eye piece that the charge. I found that the time is cut in half when suing the screen for any recording which really is not what I expected. Great for a quick and short back up. This also is the same even with the original panasonic batteries. Slow recharge.

                                This came with the camera so I feel hesitant reviewing something negatively that I got for free. Still, I want to warn people that this battery stopped working in my camera after a few uses. Was awkward to attach and than got a message from the camera saying the battery wouldn't work. After I returned it, it still remained awkward to fit into camera slot and when it popped out on a shoot... well I can't have that happen. Retiring it and keeping it around in case I need it to feed a light or monitor.

                                  I bought this battery knowing there was a chance that the Af100 would hate it. When i got it, charged it up and put it in, it worked! So I was pretty happy about that, only now everytime I try to use one of the two I bought i get "This battery cannot be used" and the camera shuts down. I'm still trying to fathom (outside of the obvious) why Panasonc is so uptight about 3rd party batteries but be aware this will NOT work in the AF100. It will reject it, fortunatly I have a monitor that takes the d-series batteries and can be retrofit to use these E series, so Im not Totally SOL.

                                    I bought this battery for back up. I had a shoot on a train, and did not know if AC power would be available. As it turned out I did need the battery to finish the shoot. thanks to B&H for getting it out to me so quick.
