    How long should the GH2 battery last,the one supplied with my GH2 purchased at the start of the year suddenly seems to be giving up,its not my only one i have a spare,my GH2 is a fun cam used for private video so does not get used like wedding cameras,all the batteries on camcorders i have had lasted for years.

    Depends on a variety of factors- usage, charging, etc. Have you tried doing a conditioning?

    That refers to laptops though,i know in the old days cam batteries had to be fully discharged before recharge but they were a different type then.

    People have mixed experiences with generic batteries. I for one vouch never to use them again after one burned my 7D. I don't think it's worth the risk personally.
