Hi all friend,

I have DMC-FZ20 with only the original panasonic cga-s002, now i should by the second battery and i saw online that there is a battery called:

Power2000 CGA-S002 800 MAH BATTERY PANASONIC FZ10 FZ20

This product is good or not for my camera, and is better of original battery?

I live in Italy and i can find only the original battery, but is more expensive.

Thank in advance.

i've heard complaints about the power2000 not fitting in the charger properly. can't confirm those comments myself, but i can recommend this battery:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...37526&rd=1

i have two of these as backups, and they work perfectly. they're also onlyhalf the price of the power2000, so for the same price you could get two spare batteries! :G

I'm quite happy with two extra FZ series batteries from Global Batteries -- can't tell them from the OEM product in use, they cost about a third and delivery was prompt.

A web search will turn them up -- they seem to have quite a few sites.

Edit: I just checked the .au site and they've put the price up.

In November I paid $A33.62 -- now they want $A46.94.

Still under half the Australian OEM price, though.
