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 )Front View:Attachment 177684Top View:Attachment 177685Side View:Attachment 177686
They ship from China. I ordered them on Monday
with the fastest shipping option that they had (UPS 2nd Day Air for 30$ extra) and I received them on Thursday
here in Rhode Island, USA.
The customer service is available mostly per the Chinese time 9AM which is night for us peepz in USA. But 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)
Hei, thank you for your post, It was really useful. But something is not working out that well for me, let me elaborate.
I do Live in Portugal and recently tried my luck with an Hong-Kong's (ebay) seller for a VBG260.
Like someone said here before, I also bought two (thinking they would work!), the problem is, as I've read on some other site seems like the recent firmware (I just bought the camera tho) "blocks" these 3rd party batteries. Mine say's it can't be used and turns off.
Btw, here's the "link" to the ebay's page I got it from (since I'm a new user I can't post links...) here's the item number, just search using it. 290446687954
Actually, as of today, only one arrived. Maybe the other one (that I won't be using! :\\ ) will get here tomorrow. I placed the order on the 21's of June, today's the 2nd of July. I live in Portugal so my question was...
Can I order from Mallbox being outside the USA&Canada, does anyone here have some sort of international shipping experience with them ?
I've sent them an e-mail ( email@example.com
) to see what they say, no reply yet.Actually this is pretty bad, I could only find ONE original VBG260 (the same store I bought my HS700 from, pixmania dot com ) in Portugal
Any help would be much appreciated, thank you for your time.
PS. I re-read the thread and I do have a question. The batteries you guys were talking about from forest.tone were these ? 160442637563 (e-bay's item number) ?
