Thread: 3rd party batt for fz5

  1. #1

    Default 3rd party batt for fz5

    Went to Alan photo and ask the price.
    It costs $25 but i forgot to ask the brand.
    What do we need to look out for to choose a good battery?
    Is the price reasonable ?

    don't buy those from AP.

    check out here: www.eastgear.com.sg

    they sell one of the better 3rd party batts in the market, most users responded that they get longer battery life than the original one from eastgear batts.

    it costs $34.95 and only 800mAh. 800 seems quite low.

    whats the difference bet 680, 800 and 1200 mAh? The supplied battery is 680mAh, so if i buy a 3rd party battery, should it be higher or lower, or it doesnt really matter?

    Go to Infocom at Funan #04-20/21/22.
    Got my EastGear 900mah from there for $28.90.

    If you go EastGear at PP, they are selling 900mah at $34.95..

    i think one day at plug, i'll bring my multimeter + a circuit..
    can we test all the OEM batteries and see which gives the highest capacity?
    the 980mAh one i haf seem to suck.. i am curious if it's really 980mAh...
    as for the 1200mAh.. amazing if it's true.. it should last almost twice as long as the panasonic one if it's true..
