Thanks for the reply Rambow,

The battery is actually 1200 mAh but it sounds like there is nothing to be done to extend the life. Just as well I go out with 4 of them for a day's shoot.

Something to consider is an external battery adapter coupled to a large USB power bank. I have a 20100 mAh power bank that will run my FZ2500 for three full days between charges vs. going through four small batteries in one day, which is why I went this route in the first place.

Put the power bank in a small waist pack & you're good to go.


Thx Steve,

I have a power bank that holds 4 x 3400 mAh 18650 batteries. I mainly use it attached to a tripod when doing timelapse. I need to rig up a secure way to carry it on the camera strap and I would be right.
