Remaining battery indicator (mostly) works on G6
on November 16, 2013
I looked and compared all of the third party batteries that would work with my Panasonic G6. I really needed a battery cell that would give me an accurate reminaing battery read. I found this battery to be just what I needed.
Why is this a good deal?
1.) It works and holds a decent charge
2.) It is significantly cheaper than the stock Panny battery for the G6
3.) This is the big one for me: my G6 gives an accurate remaining battery reading with this battery, so I don't have to worry about my camera just shutting off without warning. From what I've read, other brands of the same battery model do not have this capability.
I've only had this battery for about a month, but it has lasted and been consistent thus far. Purchasing this battery should be a no-brainer for owners of a G6.
After having used this battery on multiple occasions, I've found that the remaining battery indicator has reflected less and less what the actual remaining power is. It will indicate when the battery is low, but will drop within a matter of minutes from the half charge indicator to the flashing battery warning. However, I still think this battery is a no-brainer to buy. It's cheap and effective.
