I received the battery charger from Amazon and it is NOT the correct charger. That is a real shame.

On the other hand I shot for over 6 hours this weekend and the battery still has a bar left and I have a spare. I might just be fine with two batteries after all.

Recently, I have been trying to find a solution for powering the GH3. As most of you know I shoot my son’s climbing events. However, I recently took on a role where I have to actually record the entire event(About 8 hours).

I used 3 separate batteries with the GH2 to accomplish this. However, the GH3 batteries last much longer so I could get away with only using 2. I bought a second battery for about $90 from BandH but I really did not want to buy another $90 battery.

I tried to buy one from mellowdigital but they are a scam site so I just got my money back and ran.

Don’t ever buy from this place.

Then I came to the conclusion that 2 batteries would work for me if I had a way to charge them both simultaneously. I looked on amazon and found a GH3 charger for $6. Now I fully expect this to be a scam as well. However, if it isn’t and it is a legit charger then that will be perfect.

The issue with only one charger is that the battery takes 4 hours to charge. I don’t get home until about 10:00 PM from these events and I have to have the batteries charged and ready to go the next morning at 6:00 AM. I could never get up in the middle of the night to swap the batteries out on the charger. With two chargers I won’t need to do that.

If the new charger doesn’t work out then I will just buy another battery on Amazon.
