    IBP-G6 Panasonic VW-VBG6 DV Battery is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works OK, but still some bugs This is an aftermarket replacement for the Panasonic VW-VBG6 battery used in the AG-AF100 and HMC series camcorders. I have both an AF100 and an HMC80, and bought this, at less than half the price of the OEM batteries, to have more power on long shoots. It performs much like the original batteries in terms of running time. However, it does not communicate perfectly with the camera, and about one time out of four, my AF100 reports an error when first starting up and refuses to turn on. Cycling the power usually works to get up and running, but this does not inspire confidence. I haven't had the battery long enough to judge its longevity after many charging cycles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great I purchased this battery as a backup for my Panasonic AG-AC160A. It works great, but did at one point in filming display a battery error message that was resolved by turning the camera off and on. The camera appears to have a difficult time gauging the estimated time left with the battery and jumps from 9.5 hours to 5 hours after 10 minutes of use. Overall though, the battery works and has a life longer than needed for my filming style.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wouldnt buy this product again When the time gets close to 30 minutes remaining, the camera will shutoff.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some compatibility problems I have both a Panasonic HMC80 and AF100 that use this type of battery. The ikan runs just as long as the stock Panasonic batteries (about 3 hours on either of these camcorders), works on the same chargers, and is about half the price. However, the mechanical fit onto the camera brackets is not as smooth as the original battery. The time remaining scale in the viewfinder is a little erratic and doesn't seem as accurate as with the Panasonics. About one time out of three when using the ikan in my AF100, the camera reports a battery error when powered up and shuts down after a few seconds. Cycling the power has always succeeded to get it going, but this is an inconvenience and a little frightening when you're depending on the camera to work. I'll continue to use this one but probably wouldn't buy another.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Similar performance lower price. Seems to perform as well as the Panasonic battery at a reduced price... We've shot 6, 3 hour shows so far and had no problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! We are using the Ikan IBP-G6 battery on our Panasonic HMC-80.It has 3.5 hours on a full charge. Better than our other long life battery and at a great price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds it's charge well A solid replacement for the EOM battery. We've used in on our Panasonic AC-160 and it keeps things warm for three hours or more.
