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.

UPDATE:
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.

Better capacity than the OEM battery, works perfectly with the Panasonic charger and the FZ-200. There is nothing not to like. Instead of paying over $40 for a Chinese battery with Panasonic stamped on it, $14 for this battery (with a better warranty) makes perfect sense. I bought two, as I do substantial video.

These batteries are great bargains compared to the OEM rip-off priced little gems.

I bought this battery for the price. I guess I got what I paid for. What I didn't get--and what some previous reviewers suggested I would get--is a battery that tells you how much "juice" you have left. (Think "mini" spare analogy: you know up front NOT to drive on it except to the closest service station.) Use this Halcyon battery the same way. Keep it as a spare, charged up and ready to go when your "real" LUMIX battery goes "flat" when you're out on the road. Then use the Halcyon but then REMEMBER: charge the "real" LUMIX and swap it back into the camera at the earliest opportunity just as you would with your cars "mini" spare tire.
DO NOT TRUST THE ICON in your viewfinder when the camera is on "Halcyon" power. It lies! It doesn't lie when the LUMIX battery is doing the work. I'd buy it again as a "spare", but I would never plan on "hitting the road" on Halcyon power. You WILL miss the shot of a lifetime. Including the "selfie" of you kicking and screaming.

The Halcyon 1600 mAH Lithium Ion Replacement Battery for Panasonic Lumix FZ200 works okay but it is not as good as the OEM battery. I can get over 600 shots from the OEM battery but only around 230 from the Halcyon. The OEM cost 3 times more than the Halcyon, so it is a fair trade off.

The Halcyon is a decent value as long as you know what you are getting. If I had known about the difference in performance, I would have probably spent the extra money and purchased the OEM Panasonic battery.

This battery seems to work just fine in my Lumix FZ200. I wanted a backup battery for when I'm away from the house. The price was right, and supposedly has more reserve power than the name brand battery. Absolutely no complaints, so far.

No problems with this battery in the Lumix FZ200. Fast delivery. Have had problems with third party batteries in the past, but not with this one.

I brought this as a spare battery on a recent Alaskan cruise and land tour and used the mfg battery and this battery interchangeably over a 2 week period. This battery charged in the standard battery charger with no probs and seemed to last a bit longer, (1600maH vs 1200 maH) than the mfg battery. Don't know, however, the long term results.

While the battery is rated at 1600mAH, I am getting significantly fewer shots (maybe 100) than the original battery (around 200 shots) that came with the Panasonic / Lumix camera. You get what you pay for. It is nice to have a backup, but I do not use this as my primary battery.

I bought this because the original batteries seem outrageously expensive. Unfortunately, this is cheap but after using it 4 days or so it would completely lose charge after just a couple of hours. The original battery lasts 2 days taking lots of shots. Don't waste your money.
