Panasonic VW-VBG260 battery... original or replacement batteries?
on Jun 11, 2010 at 3:17:52 am

Hey guys I recently bought the VBG260 batteries (2 of them) from the web site below:

Panasonic VW-VBG260 Equivalent Camcorder Battery


I should receive the batteries by Friday (June 11, 2010). I will post my comments if they work with my camcorder (HS700). I am sure if they work with HS700 then they should work for the TM700.

Has anybody used the batteries from this vendor?

Please note that the Voltage is 7.2V and Capacity is 2640 mAh which is the same as the original Panasonic VBG260 specs.

Most of the knock offs online have either 7.4V or 2500+ mAh.

Here is a description from that web page:
Chemistry Li-ion
Voltage 7.2V(Compatible with 7.4V)
Capacity 2640 mAh <-- IMPORTANT
Dimensions 1.6 x 1.4 x 1.4 inch
Weight 0.13 lbs

The MallBox's VW-VBG260 equivalent battery operates just like the Panasonic original. MallBox's VW-VBG260 equivalent battery can communicate with Panasonic camcorders and show the remaining time on most of LCD screens*. Each charge will power your camcorder for up to 3 hours.

Unlike some of the other aftermarket VW-VBG260 batteries, the MallBox's VW-VBG260 battery is fully compatible with the original Panasonic battery charger (VW-AD21 or VW-AD21-K) and does not require a dedicated aftermarket charger.

Alright guys !!! Here is the Life Saver for all peepz looking for VBG260 batteries:

These batteries WORK with my HDC HS700. I am 99.99% sure they will work with TM700 too. I bought two of these and they also work with the charger that came with my Camcorder. Also I see the 3 hours "Remaining Time" display on my LCD. I couldn't be happier.

Remaining Time Display on my CamCorder with these batteries FULLY CHARGED:

Video Mode: 2hrs 50min <-- Nice
Picture Mode: 3hrs 17min
Album Mode: 4hrs 41min

Here are the pics of the two batteries:
1. VBG130 (The Original that came with my camcorder)
2. VBG260 (The one I bought off the internet )

I ordered them on Monday with the fastest shipping option that they had (UPS 2nd Day Air for 20$ extra) and I received them on Thursday here in Rhode Island, USA.

The Customer Service was very helpful. The CS Representative Lance helped me a lot with all my questions because initially I was skeptical about this battery order that I had placed.

However the package came today and I just tested the batteries with my camcorder and they work HURRAY !!!

Here is the tracking info just in case you might want to know where does the package originate and how does it travel to your address:

Attachment 177620

Like I said they have the correct Voltage and Capacity as listed on the original battery. I will post pictures of this battery.

Enjoy everyone and plz remember this news came first from Canis Majoris (Largest known star in the Universe)
