    Panasonic does have a ID protection circuitry as does Canon and probably others. I have bought another brand battery for both of these cameras which did not work. So I was taking a chance that these would work. But as advertised, they work fine in my TS5 camera. The life seems the same as the original one – I have used the original and both of these until exhausted. Not really too happy with the original, but these are at least as good. The camera just uses a lot of power with all the features.

    It seems to be Panasonic’s bad habit to market spare batteries for their new cameras MONTHS after the camera’s release. I’d been through this with other Panasonic models, and wasn’t exactly surprised when I began looking for spares for the ZS30 and couldn’t find any originals. It must have been bad timing on my part, but when I needed spares, the only available ones on Amazon were Big Mike’s.

    Cameras with built-in GPS drain batteries quickly and I knew that (I wanted the GPS, so turning it off wouldn’t be an option). I was on a deadline, my forthcoming trip looming just ahead, so I decided to risk it and bought two. To my surprise, Big Mike’s batteries actually lasted longer on my ZS30 than the original Panny battery that shipped with it!

    Unfortunately, at the time nobody on Amazon was selling external chargers for the ZS30. I absolutely HATE the in-camera charging system so many manufacturers adopted because it is such a hassle: insert empty battery in camera, plug camera to laptop or wall, charge, remove full battery, insert another empty battery, plug camera… But during my trip to Japan, I found an external charger (NOT Panasonic…) that worked with the BCM13E, which enabled me to have full spares at all moments of my trip.

    Big Mike’s really saved my day.

    These were a cheap alternative to the Panasonic batteries–they charge fine and hold a charge as long as the original. Good product for a good price. I use them in the ZS30.
