I thought I might stir this pot again,...

Has anyone found a source for an FZ100 battery that is certain to work,.....at a somewhat reasonable price?

As another poster said,...$35-$50 seems to be the price, but those advertisers don't actually have the battery in stock.

Anyone press their luck and get one of the $20 spares that is on ebay now? I'm sure it's a knock-off, but there are some good reviews (if legit).

Looks like some people are putting together their own (home made) external battery packs (wear it on a belt clip) until FZ100 batteries become readily available. The great thing about that is the charge on the external packs seems to last forever (ie, probably use it for a whole month's vacation without needing a charge).

Still no spare batteries? Amazing! You dropped the ball on this one, Panasonic.

I love my FZ100 but I sure would like to have another battery for back up.

One person has reported in on the results of their purchase of the Chinese variants. Apparently the charge level indication is not displayed with use of these batteries.
