HMC150 Batterys and chargers

Attention HMC 150 Owners.

Can you please tell me what size battery came with your HMC150. I have looking at a couple of places some say its 2460mah and others say 5400mah.
Would this just be a miss print or is it possible that the camera comes stock from different places with different sized batterys.

Also does the camera come stock with a stand alone charger (ie. not needing to be connected to the camera to charge)?
If no can you suggest a good aftermarket stan alone battery charger and where to get them from.
thank you

Hi Stu

Depends on the package!! My mate Shaun got the big battery from GMP when he bought his!!

You always get a standalone charger but BEWARE!! You can ONLY use the genuine HMC batteries or IDX from the USA...Generics do NOT work!!!! I would just stick to the Panny charger that comes with the camera BTW: If you import the IDX battery it cannot display the time left on your EVF..but works in the camera!! The 5800mah battery costs around $200+ from GMP so factor that into your costs if you find a sweeter deal!!! You might just get the smaller battery and a $200 discount!!!
