It would be incorrect to base the functioning of the pinch directly off the output voltage.
This is because lithium ion/polymer batteries do not take their operating voltage to charge - they require a higher input to charge from flat to full.
Likewise, the battery itself will change voltage dramatically between 8.4v and 6v, depending on the charge level and age.
Thus, you will find that the pinch operates near to 8.4v in order to be able to fully charge the battery.
If the pinch was around 7.4v then it would not be supplying enough juice to get your battery to full charge (and you would then have problems with your batteries running flat!)
What you really need to look at is the "max voltage", not the "nominal voltage" (which is what's written on the label: i.e: 7.4v battery, 12v battery etc.).
The best way to measure this would be to get the original DC charger included with your camcorder and either measure the voltage from that or look up the specs online.
You can then compare this directly with the output from the pinch - you will see that both the DC charger and the pinch will NOT be 7.4v (or 12v or whatever the nominal rating is of your battery).
This is just the nature of Li batteries and as long as your charge source is not dramatically off (i.e: no 10v output for your 7.4v nominal voltage battery!) you will be fine.

You just need to go back and read Alex's post (the one immediately preceding yours), because he's absolutely correct.
(Which explains why I've not had any issues using 2 different brands of generic batteries with my AF-100 over the last 12 months).AF100, GH4 x2, Lumix 20, 7-14, 12-35, 35-100, 14-140, 100-300.

batteries has nothing to do with it, all i need is the right connector that unfortunately is not for sale locally, not on ebay, and few usa sites who has it, dont ship internationally. ALSO i already PROVED that battery has nothing to do with it as i connected it with out a connector using peace of iron and an extra peace of cord - checked and all worked fine!
so all i need is the right connector!
