I don't actually think so. I think the 17% higher capacity count doesn't exist, since I've read from somewhere that the capacity of Li-ion battery is directly linked to its size, and because the 3rd-party and the original are exactly the same size I don't think there can be any significant difference in capacity. So far the battery works fine, but I can't say about the proformance yet.

Are you really getting the higher 17% performance?

Wanted to get a consolidated list of successful 3rd party batteries
that people have used for their ZS3... clearly the battery doesn't
last long, so keeping 2 extra makes sense, but with all the different
ones on ebay, I figured we'd consolidate on the ones that work well
and the ones that dont...
