Works Fine with my ZS9
on January 28, 2012
I was a little nervous when I ordered this battery. Some reviews say the Panasonic DMC-ZS9 will not power up with third party batteries. However, with the excellent price and low shipping cost offered on this battery I decided to take a chance. The battery arrived quickly and it charged up just fine in my Panasonic charger. Once charged, I popped the battery into my ZS9 and turned on the camera. My ZS9 powered up just fine. Also, I checked my camera firmware and it is version 1.0.
The only thing I don't know about this battery is how many shots I can get with it. That will take time to find out. The rating on this battery is 1200 mAh. The rating on the original Panasonic battery is 895 mAh. However, one can print anything one wants on the front of a battery. On the other hand, this battery costs one-quarter of what an original Panasonic battery costs. Even if I only get half the number of shots per charge, I figure I'm still ahead. What the heck. At this price, buy two of three of these batteries. It will still cost you less than one original Panasonic battery.
