Re: Agreed

Do you have a link to a 3rd party battery with the same safety features as the genuine Panasonic.

Its not that that long ago Sony Corp. had a nasty battery incident (laptops) so I guess safety is a wise approach in the case of Li-ion. The question is if Panasonic will allow OEM batteries with the same features as their genuine ones. Time will show..

I think it is silly to believe that Panasonic has done this for safety reasons. They simply want to boost their profits. There are plenty of 3rd party generics that have over-charging prevention and shorting circuitry so why ban all non-oem in the name of safety? If they are worried about safety they should just put a sticker on the camera saying that non-oem's can be hazardous......Does Nikon, Canon, Sony,etc have firmware blocking generics? NO!
