Source of 3rd party LX5 battery showing charge remaining???
Nov 28, 2011

I recently traded in my LX3 for a lovely black LX5. This camera is a real gem. Only problem so far is my inability to source a third party battery which also shows the battery charge remaining icon at the top right rear screen corner. I went GRRRRR... when I discovered that the Panasonic battery would not fit my LX2/3 charger and then even more GRRRR.. when I discovered that Panasonic originals cost almost £40 here in UK. I must have looked at dozens of suppliers and none of them can supply a 100% compatible battery.

Please let me know if you have knowledge of a supplier who make a battery that can also show this icon. I need a reliable spare and would prefer the battery icon showing.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help.
