    Comments about Watson DMW-BMB9 / BP-DC9 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 850mAh):

    Outdoor vacation photo-taking means relying upon a battery that won't run down. If they do, you need a backup battery(s) because recharging in the mountains is not an option. These work as well as the original equipment.

                Charged up in Panasonic's charger for the LUMIX DMC-FZ70 and when put in the camera, camera displays the battery as fully charged.

                Have not yet tested how many shots it gives vs. the OEM battery.

                    Bought this as a backup battery for my Panasonic Lumix FZ70. Was a little skeptical but could not find the Panasonic battery anywhere. Took a chance and brought it on a recent trip to South Africa and was very pleased with the battery's performance. Lasted almost as long as the Panasonic battery for a fraction of the cost.

                        Have not done an actual count, but the feel I have is that it can run for about the same time as the original ones made by Panasonic.

                                      Works great in my Lumix FZ150. Charge levels are indicated and it performs like the Panasonic DMW-BMB9. I will purchase another one if needed.

                                        Level indicator works with them. Just as many images per charge if not even more. Never warm after a charge or heavy use. Worth the doe.

                                              I purchased two of the DMW-BMB9s for my Panasonic FZ150. To purchase two of the OEM variety in Canada would have been almost four times as much and there would't be any advantage as they possess the same capacity. Charging and operational characteristics are identical with the Panasonic battery
