I put this battery in my Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 and the camera gave me this message, "This battery cannot be used." With a little investigation I discovered that Panasonic has embedded code in their cameras so no 3rd party batteries will work. The product description says it will work but it will not. Also I placed my OEM battery in the Wasabi charger because I did not know if my charger was broken or the battery and now my OEM battery is ruined because it now gives the dreaded, "This battery cannot be used" error message and turns the camera off. The OEM battery costs $25 bucks more that I paid for the camera at retail. So the moral of the story, don't buy Panasonic and don't buy wasabi batteries. Below is the Panasonic no support page describing the situation. Amazon should not sell any of these batteries that say they will work in Panasonic cameras because they WILL NOT WORK. All I can figure is the reviews are all fake to get you to buy. I am a real customer and returned this item!
