Best batteries for fz-300?

Hi, I'm in need of spare batteries because the one it came with does not last long enough.  I've bought the wasabi power and DSTE kinds from amazon which while cheap do not last long at all and suddenly die despite the camera showing it isn't close to dead.  I'm debating if I should buy the quite expensive ones from panasonic or if someone knows of others that have worked well for them.  My main battery plus 3 knock offs still doesn't last an entire day of busy shooting and I would like to be able to camp sometimes and have enough for 2 days straight of frequent shooting and sleep mode.  I keep my camera in sleep mode for most of my trips and I heard somewhere the knock offs don't conserve power in sleep mode which may be why they die relatively quickly.  At this rate I will need something like 20 knock off batteries totalling over $200.

Some way to charge them while out in the field would be very nice too!

Thanks for any opinions.
