A DPS 9000 is a rechargeable external battery pack. Veryeasy to use and the price is right: about $40. It attaches to the camera via a short wire and mounts under the camera with a screw to the tripod screw. A tripod may be mounted to the bottom of the DPS. It will power the FZ20 for about 8 hours so the camerawill be ready to take pictures. Has a power meter to check charge level.

Below is a picture of the DSP 9000 sandwiched between my DIY tripod adapter and a quick release attachment for a tripod

A picture is worth a thousand words

I bought a DPS-9000 and it does come with skimpy information.
I really appreciate it, if anyone can answer the following questions:

1- How long for the DPS-9000 to charge the first time? to recharge afterwards?
2- Will the red light on the charger go off when the battery is charged?
3- How does one tell the status of the charge of the battery with those 5 lights... and what do they mean?

thanks.

Not sure about 1 and 2, though you should know by now. Pressing the button illuminates the row of lights. All 5 lit indicates the battery is full. No lights = empty.
