I got an unbranded one from ebay. paid less than $14.
I don't recommend Edworks brand battery - I've got one that doesnt hold charge for more than 20 mins use.

I have 1 of those when I got my LX3 there... the batt sucks. didn't last more then a month and now it screws up big time. Can't even switch on my LX3. only can use in photo viewing mode. strange.... listen to THECHEF. get a new original panasonic batt. when i go on my next holiday, i'm gonna get an original spare batt.

i have no answer to that yet. as I've yet to get a brand new original batt. maybe you can call ms colour or ap to check? if not, jus call panasonic itself to get it from them.

I checked/called MScolor, TKfoto, Alan photo (both outlet), John3:16, TCW, harvey norman (funan), Cathay (both outlet) and Lords but all don't have. Finally found it at Song Brothers at funan at $75... ouch...

in case anyone else interested they still have a few there...

personally i avoid 3rd part batteries as i've bad experiences with them - main complain being that they don't hold the charges well.

IMHO if we already spent so much on the cam might as well spend a little more for compatibility, durability, and peace of mind...

Many onwners claimed they got good deal by looking at the useless freebies. It just add to the weight, waste and time loss
