I've just ordered the Halciyon batteries off amazon. it's 20.99 $. you get two batteries and a small charger. the batteries are advertised as 1400 mAh. reviews are favorable. I'll let you know how it worked for me.

I'm going to blow risk $17 on two Halciyon batteries without the charger. Amazon is good at making it right if it is not. I'd get the Watson's from B&H, but don't have time.

The Halcyon's arrived today.  A surprise 12V/120V/240V charger was included in the box.  The quality looks fine.  If not, I've wasted only $17 and can heal quickly.

These only will be backups.  Knowing my shooting habits, they will rarely be needed.  Time will tell how well they work and if they last.  I threw away a 3 year old Wasabi for my Panasonic camcorder last week when it refused to take a full charge.  I'd only used it a couple times.  It probably died from lack of use.

If Panasonic had offered to deliver a battery at all, I would have bought it.

Tomorrow I get to unbox, see and touch the new GX7 for the first time!
