    Panasonic DMW-BLC12 reviews

    DMW-BLC12 Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery (7.2V, 1200mAh) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 226.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and safety The reason I bought this instead of generic is that this one is UL Listed. (That's the premier third party safety certification) there's no room to be cheap with lithium batteries. They're burning houses and planes down these days. Also, I know the capacity will be the same as the original, rather than less, like the generics. I think the aftermarket ones have smaller cells in the regular size case to cut cost. Not for me, thanks! I'm usually okay with just the original pack, but I find BOTH of my packs last longer if I have two, since I can run them all the way own before recharging. It means fewer charges, because I never need to top off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Leica Q Have 5 of these for my Leica Q. Identical specs to the much pricer Leica models and don't appear to make any difference in terms of longevity, etc. Bought that many for an extended treck through the Inca Trail but they last an extraordinarily long time so if you're just walking around with regular, daily/nightly access to power, 1 extra on top of the one that comes with your camera, ought to be more then enough to keep you shooting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A smart choice I saved a lot of money buying this battery for my Leica Q. The Leica battery ( probably the exact same one as this one) is very very expensive. This battery works just as good as the Leica battery from Leica.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wish this battery lasted longer I used this battery to supplement another identical battery that came with my Panasonic GH2 for a documentary shoot outdoors where I had no access to a charging station this past weekend. The battery lasts for around 2-2.5 hours of shooting when I am not trying to play any of the footage back. Since it's a genuine Panasonic battery it does show how much battery life is remaining. However, I would have liked to have at least one more battery to make my shoot more feasible. I wish each individual battery had a longer life so I didn't have to keep switching them out and recharging them since I missed a being able to shoot a great event after both of my batteries ran out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent battery at a fair price I like it when the manufacture gives you a great product at a reasonable price. Works well and no issues with using it on a Leica Q.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Price Gouging Much? These are the official batteries for cameras like the Panasonic GH2 and Panasonic G7, and they work as intended. That's not why I'm docking two stars from my score. The reason is the price. I have no idea why Panasonic charges so much for these batteries and makes it so difficult to get your hands on them compared to GH4 batteries. The G7 is a pretty popular camera after all. But, if you need them, bite your lip and press the Purchase button. It's better to get these then the third party batteries, after all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with the Leica Q Purchased the DMW-BLC12 Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery (7.2V, 1200mAh) as a backup for my Leica Q. Works flawlessly and entirely likely that the two are identical except for the branding printed on item (the two companies have a close relationship with one another). Lasts equally as long as its Leica-branded counterpart, fits perfectly in the Leica charging unit and seems to have no downsides. And for the price compared to Leica's own model, it's a no-brainer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine, but proprietary battery The battery appears to work just fine, but I do seem to run through a single charge fairly quickly. Haven't had enough recharge cycles to REALLY review the product for against expectations; but so far, so good. The only downsides are the previously mentioned use-between-recharge period; the (typical for most cameras) proprietary, camera-readable chip; and due to that, the lack of fully comparable alternatives and therefore an associated relatively high price for a battery. All that said, I bought this as my primary backup battery. I also bought the DC coupler (DMW-DCC8GU), which I'll use as a secondary backup method coupled to higher capacity and cheaper RC battery packs (see another user's review on that product here).
