What can I say its the same battery that comes with the product tm 700. I found that with 2 of these recording at 1080 60p I could burn one for an hour then swap to another for an hour while charging the first one, and then swap again, all though I would have a 30 minute down time in which I would use the Ac adapater to crun straight to the camera. Either way a must have for extended shooting.

Good for price

This battery will provide an extra hour of time. It worked fine and there is another, more expensive battery that will give you a little longer. I wish the description had been clearer about the differences between the two batteries, as I was a little surprised that this one only provided half of the battery life of the original.

    Comments about Panasonic VW-VBG070 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack:

    I purchased a couple non-name brand batteries in an effort to save money but shortly thereafter realized that I should have purchased this battery in the first place. The battery has a shooting life of about 1.5 hours but the hockey games I shoot are just a little longer so I wish there was a longer life alternative, but this is relaible product and worth every penny. Don't make the same mistake I made...just get this one vs a non brand name battery.

      Not a good fit for TM700

      By MusicMan

      Pros

      • Lightweight

      Cons

      • Poor Fit
      • Short Life

      Best Uses

        Comments about Panasonic VW-VBG070 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack:

        I would not recommend this for TM700 owners. The battery life is far too short in this camera to be usable. You'll get 30 minutes tops. While this battery technically fits this camera, its mAh rating is far too undersized to be useful. So try the VW-VBG130 (comes with the TM700) or the VW-VBG260 instead.

            Comments about Panasonic VW-VBG070 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack:

            This battery was advertised for compatible use with my Camcorder, Panasonic HDC-HS250, what wasn't stated was you can't use the flash with this battery. I feel I was misled in purchasing this battery as an additional power supply.

            I would recommend for use if you never plan on using for flash photography.
