Quality alternate battery pack for Leica Q, model BP-DC12
5

Usually I only buy backup batteries from original manufacturers, such as Olympus and Panasonic Lumix. However, the battery came with Q, Leica model BP-DC12, B&H charges for $85.95, which is definitely too expensive IMHO!

Based on the UL File No. MH27866, I checked UL Product iQ, discovered that under the same UL File, the battery for Q, are made by the same manufacturer who supplies batteries to Lumix and Sigma. So I bought Sigma BP-51 from B&H for $40 only, and it worked perfectly with my Q!

I am sure those three battery packs: Leica model BP-DC12, Panasonic Lumix model DMW-BLC12PP, Sigma model BP-51 are the same battery - designed and fabricated by Panasonic

, they were all fabricated by Panasonic's factory in China. The manufacturer for UL Certification owner is

PANASONIC CORPORATION ENERGY COMPANY LITHIUM-ION BATTERY BUSINESS UNITMH278661-1 MATSUSHITA-CHOMORIGUCHI-SHI, OSAKA 570-8511 JAPAN

See photos for more details.

Hope it helps for looking for a quality alternate battery back for Leica BP-DC12.

Thanks,

Edward
