Thanks, unfortunetaly they do not ship outside US (and I'm overseas).

I've heard there is a source for the batteries in Honk Kong and some of our fellows bought a pair of 2010 mAh batteries for about 100 % fom him.

Any info ?

Out of those links, how sells the better built batteries? I recall someone posting a battery link somewhere that actually made Pana batteries for Pana, but also sold them directly, and cheaper but without the Pana logo. :)

I'm looking to buy some cheap batteries for my JVCs. That's why I'm asking. When it says, "JVC" on them, they are way too crazy expensive---locally anyway.

Well, the actual price difference isn't that great. B&H sells these 2010 mAh batteries for GS70 (the one compatible with GS100)
for just about 10-15 US$ more (though out of stock right now).

I remember someone mentioned purchasing a few batteries from certain soucre in Honk Kong (via Ebay ?) and they turedn to be fully functional and new but for half price !

Would be interested to figure that link.

http://www.sabahoceanic.com is already selling the equivalent of VBD140 and VBD140. Not as low as the Hong Kong seller but still cheap. Check their link.

Frank, they also sell equivalent batteries for JVC.

Last time I asked them, the cells are made in Japan but the batteries are assembled somewhere else.

Thanks Allan. I see they're located in Las Vagas.

Are these batteries any good?

I didn't find the larger batteries for the MX300 there, just for the MX350. Are they the same batteries between these 2?

Also, I couldn't find the larger batteries for the GR-DVL9500, but I saw one for the GR-DVL9600---the same, right?

Yes, I'm curious whether there is a larger capacity on-camera battery then VBD210, or in order to get an uninterrupted operation for longer time one have to go for waist-type battery.

As far as Pany Japan is concerned, there is NONE


or in order to get an uninterrupted operation for longer time one have to go for waist-type battery.

YES. Available only in Japan I believe.
This is just my observation. I think the rest of the world are more interested on this huge battery than the Japanese market. Except for the pros or those who shoot video for a living, I cannot imagine ordinary Japanese users to be carrying around a 400 gram battery on their waist, while say, shooting home videos, sports festivals, traditional festivals, events, or while sightseeing or just having fun. But if you really need LONG battery life, this is the only way to go.

Yeah, right, as I said :just out of curiousity" :-)

now I see the standard battery life is not that bad as thought, so once I'll acquire a longer one I'll be set.

I dont know why the links are not working, when we click the link enclosed by the VBCODE [ u r l ], it adds automatically one more http// after the original one, so its not working. Even the copy paste of the link seems not working because the VBCODE adds three dots in between, so that also doesnt seem to work.

I should have posted this in some other topic, but wanted to let you know that links are not working.

Actually, the first time I saw a waist battery on anyone other than a news person was on a Japanese tourist in Waikiki. I thought he looked strange. Now I'm happy to look strange, too, because there is no way I could have gotten the three hours of footage I got over a six hour period without the waist battery. And it doesn't add much weight to the camera, for which I'm grateful, because holding that camera in low light conditions with a WA on was already enough to create sore arms.
