The battery being sold by Eagle Imports on Ebay is reasonably priced and has been good for me.

Default battery for FZ10

I just bought a Lenmar from Amazon for 32.99 shipped. It works just like the original.

This same company also sells under the name of PortPower USA on Ebay, and sell the same battery. They also sell a 3rd-party charger that comes with a 12v car connection for about $26. The batteries are typically around $18, sometimes less.

If you go Ebay, watch out for the batteries from Hong Kong Ebay users -- I didn't have much luck with those, even though they are listed as "genuine" Panasonic batteries. The one I bought wouldn't hold a full charge, and the seller required me to ship it back to Hong Kong for a replacement. I ended up spending so much money on shipping that I would've been better off just purchasing the genuine Panasonic battery off the Panasonic website!

www.Batterybarn.com offers a battery that's a little more expensive, but Battery Barn is a top-notch battery source and can be worth the extra money. They're prices also include Priority shipping, so it's not that much more expensive in the end.

Default Eagle Import battery for FZ10

I purchased two batteries for 19.95ea. plus 6.00 shipping for a total of 45.90. I received them in 2 days! The first battery charged just fine. The second one wouldn't fit in the charger or camera?? I called eagle and they sent a call tag out right away so I wouldn't have to pay for the return shipping. Very good customer service!! I just sent it out today and am waiting for the replacement.

It seems that if some of these so-called "compatable" batteries are deficient in any way, it is the way they fit in the camera cavity. I had a Canon where the battery actually got stuck in the camera and I had a devil of a time getting it out. If it goes in OK, the other concerns are usually not significant and it's a good value.
