battery question?
Dec 23, 2011

bought a PANASONIC DMC TZ10 (aka zs7) last year and want to get a new battery (just as extra).

looking around i can see that the actual panasonic battery is price A while a uniross battery equivalent is half of A.

my gut tells me to just get the panasonic battery BUT companies like to pull this crap so u pay more for 'their' stuff.

just wondering if anyone has experience with these uniross batteries or any other 'non-official' batteries for this camera?

thanks and merry christmas!!

I have bought reliable batteries from them for years, and would recommend them. I have 2 batteries from them for my TZ-10, and they IMO preform as well as the OEM battery, and for under $12 each.

hope this helps.

This is what I use in my ZS3

and it lasts longer than the battery that came with the camera. I've had it for a few years now too, and it's been very reliable. However, you should make sure you don't have the latest firmware which supposedly disables support for 3rd party batteries.
