Flashpoint Replacement Battery for Panasonic CGA-S005A CGA-S005E NP-70 Fuji Reviews:
Beats Lumix Branded Product
I use my Lumix digital camera for long backpacking trips where weight is critical and there are plenty of photo opportunities. The only thing that I didn't like about my camera was the short battery life with the original equipment battery. My plan was to purchase a couple of the original batteries as back up but Adorama had them on backorder and I needed them right away. I have been very pleased with the Adorama brand product. The consistently last longer than the Lumix brand in cold demanding conditions. This may be related to the specific Lumix battery that came with my camera but I certainly could ask for no more from the Adorama branded product.
This battery is worth to pay for, low price yet reliable. Purchase a spare one for your photography and you wont regret. I am glad that I made a purchase of this product. It lasts longer than the battery goes with my d-lux 3 and seems to get charged faster, which is perfect.
Excellent, reliable, inexpensive replacement battery for my Panasonic Lumix point and shoot. I use it for a spare when shooting in the bush. pops in the camera with no snags or hassle. Performs as good as the oem battery that came with the camera. I'm satisfied with its performance.
Bought battery as a back up to my trip to Italy. After my 3rd.day of heavy pic taken - I realized that I was on the same battery.... That was amazing. I'm the type that I shoot and review every pic. Would highly recomend this battery to all users.
Ordered as a second battery so I won't have to run out of juice when things are getting fun. I fully charged the battery when I received it and tried it out. At fist I though the camera just drains the battery like crazy. I'm talking about less than 100 shots on my Panasonic LX3 and it already started to how 1/3 left. Each time I turned the camera back on it will jump to full, then 1/3 and some times from 1/3 to half or full. The battery died around 120 shots without no flash and moderate LCD use. I switched to the OEM battery and I never had the camera jump back and forth telling me the different battery charge levels like the replacement one. After some shooting, the battery died around 280 shots. Once again I charged the replacement and used it and once again the battery never made it's mind on how much charge it had left. This time around 150 shots and dead. I finally decided to just have it charged and ready to go as an emergency spare. But for the price I wouldn't mind buying another to keep a few spares. 150 shots is not really that bad. It serves it's purpose and for the price, it's a better value than the OEM per photo count.
