I actually ordered this since my other replacement battery just died (wont charge). Ordered this after reading some good reviews by other customers. It's definitely alot better than my previous third party battery. That old battery that stopped working when it was low on power, would just shut down by itself without warning (no beeping sound).

It worked on my GH1 after I upgraded to the firmware v1.2 released by Panasonic my accident which enables the use of fake batteries.

There are 2 versions ... Read more
