    Panasonic VW-VBG260 reviews

    VW-VBG260 7.2V Lithium-Ion Battery Pack is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked Well for Four Years! I bought this battery in 2011 to supplement the standard battery that came with the TM700. I used it in conjunction with a TM900 as a B & C cam for sports, weddings. I used this battery in the TM700 a lot. I can't say how many hours but its in the hundreds. I was happy with it until one day it expanded, with the bottom coming off. Mind you, the battery still worked, so I glued it back together however, it only worked a few more times after that until it caused the camera to display a This battery will not work with this Camera warning. I'd give it five stars, but it blew up. So with that, I am going to try the cheap replacement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must for your Camcorder Some might think this battery chunky or whatnot. However the original battery dies fairly quickly. I had to get an extra one for my camcorder. So when I was planning to get this other one, I thought it wouldn't make sense to get another one with the exact same size because I will not be able to record everything in one time. This battery is the perfect size. Not very big but last much longer than the original one. at the same time you can have your original one being charged while using this one anyways. I think the beauty of this battery is its duration and size compare to the other two models available. This fits me very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent battery for HDC-HS9 Camcorder I use the hard drive camcorder to record sporting events for a high school team. This battery gives me over 3 hours of solid run time and charges in a few hours. It's twice as thick as the stock battery but it doesn't get in the way on the back of the camcorder and doesn't weigh much. It has been on back order at many sellers, but B&H got them in when no one else did, and at a great price. It's been fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind - Room to breathe When I recently bought the Panasonic HDC-HS300 I only had the standard battery which worked well for about 1.5 hours of mostly continuous use. Unfortunately I was quickly running out of battery-life near the end of the game which meant I had to cut off a lot of the game to save battery-life for the end-of-the-game ceremonies. Fortunately I will never have to worry about that again! I get more than 3 hours of continuous use from the VW-VBG260 and never have to sweat it out near the end of any event. I keep the standard battery with me and charged just in case the event goes WAY over the normal time. If I have to use the standard battery I put the big one on the charger and would have plenty of charge time once the standard battery ran out. A bigger, extra battery is an absolute must! There are no cons to owning this battery. It's a battery, it lasts a long time and is made well. What else is there?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff but a bit bulky Doesn't take too long to charge. And I haven't yet used it enough (have not even run out the first battery! I bought two of these ). But it has lasted quite a while on the first charge till now. So I am happy as that was the primary reason I got it.The bad side is that the battery is bulky. It juts out from the back of the camcorder. If you want to use the viewfinder, you would have to press your face hard against this battery to get a look. Another problem is fitting it into the otherwise nice lowepro editpro 100 bag. With the bundled battery there was no problem. But with this, you would have quite some difficulty pushing the camcorder inside this bag. If you want to use this battery, go for a larger camcorder bag - and buy it after you get this battery. Taking a star off for the bulkiness.BHphoto gave me better pricing than ..., and it still came out to be cheaper considering the extra shipping charges. ...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Panasonic VW-VBG260 Lithium-Ion Battery I took this battery to Europe to power my Panasonic HS300 (hard-drive), which normally comes with a much smaller one. My trip was a guided tour vacation lasting 12 days. This battery was very handy to have along since I could easily shoot an entire day without battery change. In some cases, I could shoot 2 or 3 days before having to recharge. A fully charged battery would initially report at least 3 hours 30 minutes on the camcorder display. I feel this battery is a must-have for any kind of shooting, especially for use with any of Panasonic's excellent consumer HD camcorders.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have all the time in the world now. I purchased this battery after getting tired of having to recharge my standard battery after an hour of use. This battery gave me more than 4 hours of recording time and I capture every moment of my daughters birthday party. The one negative is this battery is hugh! It makes my camcorder look like it has a trailer attached to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genuine Battery. Works Great! I use this in my Panasonic HDC-HS700. This is a genuine battery which can be charged with the standard camera charger and shows the battery remaining in the display. No adapters necessary. It works great and lasts a long time. Don't get the knock offs... this is the one to get!
