This is a great, though expensive, battery. I used to buy third-party batteries and use them without incident. But Panasonic is now "chipping" their batteries so only Panasonic-brand batteries work completely. I bought one in addition to the battery that came with my LX5, because I like to have a spare fully charged. I did buy a third-party battery prior to purchasing this one, and although the third-party battery does work, the camera's battery level indicator doesn't work when this battery is installed. Perhaps that's the only weirdness, but it makes me wonder if the battery might do damage to my camera with extended use. So ... the ~[$] I spent on the third-party battery is wasted. I only use OEM batteries in devices that require chipped batteries now.I took one star off for the high price. Otherwise, great battery with long life.

        This is the only battery to use with the Panasonic Lumix Lx7 or older Lx5. Do not count on cheaper aftermarket batteries.

            It's a good Panasonic battery for LX7. But a little bit expensive. If would be perfect if cost around $20.

              I have purchased generic batteries elsewhere in the past for other cameras.

              At best they were adequate, at worst they were not what I expected.

              I purchased the Panasonic battery at a premium cost because I simply wanted something I could be sure was 100% compatable with a high quality product.

              Purchasing it gave me greater peace of mind.

              I was happy that the product was delivered straight to my mail box and I didn't have to worry about a misdelivery.

              The battery was somewhat expensive, but it was worth it to me.

              Having a dependable spare battery means that I can take pictures for an entire day's outing.

                We purchased the Lumix LX7 camera which came with one battery. We always like to have a charged extra battery for the many photos and videos we take. This battery performs well for us. In the past we have purchased generic replacements, but they do not perform as well as original.

                      This is a new back-up battery for my old Panasonic DMC-LX5 camera. I have used a third-party battery as the back-up for this camera, but it proved to be unreliable, even though it was less expensive. The Panasonic battery that came with the LX5 lasted longer, and displayed a status icon. The third-party battery didn't last as long, and would die with no warning. Now I am going back to the Panasonic-brand DMW-BCJ13 battery.

                          Experience has shown me that the batteries sold by the camera manufacturers hold their charges longer, especially after the battery is a few years old. In the long run, it's really cheaper.

                              Nice addition to the LX7. When using some of the movies modes and /or flash the LX7 can go through the battery somewhat quickly. I don't think it was much worse than my LX3, but it is nice to have the back up and not have to miss a shot.

                                    Alternative replacement for the Leica D-Lux 6 original battery. Good value.

                                    Comments about Panasonic DMW-BCJ13 Lithium-Ion Battery (3.6V, 1250 mAh):

                                    This is the very same battery that comes with the panasonic lumix lx7 that I bought recently. So now I have 2 perfect batteries and I can safely go to a full day of vacation, shooting pictures and video all day long because I know that there is no way I'm gonna run out of battery life.
                                    My advice is: go with this battery, because the original one is always the better choice. I couldn't be happier!

                                        I bought this battery as backup for my Leica D-Lux 5. This battery fits the camera perfectly and at half the price as a Leica battery.

                                          It is small & light weight as advertised and reliable so far.

                                          Bought two "extra" batteries; one for our LX5 and one for newer the LX7. Got the "real deal" with the Panasonic batteries because they have to (by definition) be as good a product as the camera itself. No place to go "cheap"!
