Fstoppers tests several third party batteries alongside Panasonic's battery for the GH5 to compare which has the longest battery life and has the best overall value. We tested the Newmowa, Wasabi Power, and Dot 1 batteries for the GH5.
One of the first things that any new Panasonic GH5 owner should invest in is a set of extra batteries. The GH-series of cameras have always had good battery life with the included stock battery, but as we noted in our hands-on overview of the camera, the GH5 is a tad more power-hungry than its predecessors.
For under $30 dollars, you get two Newmowa 1860 mAh batteries, a dual charger, a USB micro cable, and two battery cases. That’s a substantial value for the price, especially when you consider that just one official 1860 mAh Panasonic DMW-BLF19 battery costs over $50.
