Good batteries. They are the same as what JVC shipped with my GY HM-170u. I guess since they are not OEM, they initially register as having well over 300 minutes of charge time, but that is NOT the case. When I turn the camera off after about an hour of use the battery level drops significantly, barely getting a full 2 hours out of them. Since I do many sporting events, I have to remember to change them out at halftimes. For interviews, though, these are fine. I'd give them the 5th star if they actually had those 300+ minutes!
UPDATE: I have taken away a star on this review after my cold weather experience this past weekend. With temps around 40 degrees fahrenheit and wind chills in the low 30s, these batteries lasted all of 35 minutes each - or roughly a complete half of a Pop Warner football game. At least, that's what the monitor revealed. And shooting a live event I will not risk continuing with a battery registering no power. For another game an hour later - in same...
Using this for my new 4K JVC Video Camera - they provide the same functional powering and operation as the OEM a a fraction of the cost and I have been using them heavily so I know they last under usage - been very happy with Wasabi Batteries and have them for other cameras with simular performance - highly reccomend their line of batteries and chargers.
I ordered the Wasabi Power Battery and Charger Kit for my JVC GY-HM150U and received in the mail within 5 days. The kit came with 2 batteries, a cordless charger, and a cigarette light cord with international adapter. I charged the batteries and attached it to my camcorder. The batteries fit perfectly, is well made, in fact I appears to be the exact same battery that came with my camcorder, the only difference I see is one has a JVC label, and the others have a Wasabi label. Oh, one major difference is that the price is much much less than buying JVC batteries. Blue Nook sells quality items at a low price. My message to Blue Nook, please remain as a business that sells quality items at lower prices than the name brands. I truly recommend this Wasabi Power Battery and Charger Kit.
