What is the difference between an OEM camcorder battery and DuracellDirect's camcorder batteries?
Aftermarket Panasonic camcorder batteries can be found on DuracellDirect.com as a direct replacement for OEM Panasonic
camcorder batteries. All of our camcorder batteries will either meet or exceed OEM manufacturer specifications. Many of
our camcorder batteries are UL, CE, RoHS and FCC safety certified and all of our batteries come with a full one year
warranty. You can expect a higher quality battery with new technology, longer lasting battery cells increased durability
and safety from an aftermarket camcorder battery at Duracell Direct.
What different types of Panasonic camcorder batteries are there?
Our aftermarket Panasonic camcorder batteries may be made from one of four types: Li-Ion (Lithium Ion), Li-Po
(Lithium-ion Polymer), Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium), or NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride). Each battery type has distinct
advantages over the other, such as longer life per charge, longer overall life cycle, weight, size, faster charge time,
or stability. But, all four types are universally accepted for creating high quality replacement camcorder batteries.
Why do Panasonic camcorder batteries have different capacities?
Panasonic camcorder batteries have different capacities for each camcorder model and are measured in “mAh”
(milliampere-hour). Battery mAh capacity is affected by several factors that include battery size, voltage, wattage,
and camcorder battery chemistry type. Panasonic camcorder batteries with a higher mAh will last longer on a full charge
and the internal battery cells will contain more electrolyte and electrode material to hold a higher capacity. A
Panasonic camcorder battery with a higher capacity will have a longer run time when compared to a Panasonic camcorder
battery with a lower capacity.
How long will my Panasonic video camera battery last?
Your Panasonic video camera battery should last for several hours off of a full charge. Recharging your video camera
battery should take one to three hours and reach 80% battery capacity within the first hour of charging. Average life
span for a camcorder battery is around three years and is capable of over 500 discharge / charge cycles. Your Panasonic
video camera battery life span might vary depending on how the battery pack is treated and how often it is used.
How safe are Panasonic camcorder batteries and batteries in general? How do I take care of my Panasonic battery?
You can always find safe Panasonic camcorder batteries at DuracellDirect as a direct replacement for your OEM Panasonic
camcorder. All of our camcorder battery products are UL, CE, FCC and RoHS certified.
