Ordered two BLD10E spare batteries yesterday (early) from Digi-Quick.co.uk they arrived this morning and when used they show battery charge in the meter on my G3 some others do not I believe. They were 15.99 each plus 3.95 1st class post to N. Ireland. No contacts with company just a pleased customer. I did ring and ask about them showing up on the meter was told they did but if not just send them back. Might be a useful to others.

As another new member of the G3 club thanks for this Ed. It would be good to hear what you think about their performance after you've used them a bit. Also, do you have a direct link to this item - I can't find them on the Digi-Quick site.

I found this one on Amazon, albeit a bit pricier:

It also shows the battery meter and I'll report back on how it performs.

I got one of those. So far it's working fine. I've not drained it yet.

I've just purchased two for the GH2 from digi-quick. After charging they seem to be giving good life (early days) but neither will show any indication of battery condition (or even presence) whatever. It seems that compatibilty may be different for different cameras. I'm a little annoyed as the website seems to claim otherwise. The batteries themselves are good value though. I'm using mine as emergency only. Just thought I'd warn everyone not to assume too much from the general spiel on the webste.

Seem to be working well. Like Stephen I have not used them up or much to have to worry about a recharge. I hope this link works

I did check by phone and online before I ordered They are OK with my G3. I was told if not happy or they did not show up to return them.

I sold my G3, but have a spare 3rd party battery which used to function fully on it, one of the above, I believe.

If anyone wants it they can PM their address to me and I'll send it, provided they promise to put the cost of postage in a charity box (good karma and all that).
