Many thanks! That might make or break the Lumix--kinda big for a compact battery charger. I think I'll have to see it to make mydecision. Love being able to get it at a good price @ Amazon.
Time to visit Best Buy to take a peek."wherever you go, there you are"

Back to the battery…..
I just used my tape measure and it looks like the battery is 1 ¾" x 1 ½" x ⅜". The charger is 3 ¼" x 2 ¼" x 1". Both are very lightweight. There is no cord for the charger is has pullout plugs that go right into the wall socket.Life is too short.........travel now!

Thank you so much! Those dims are about the size of my Elph camera. Might be able to do that--love mine--2 X 1.5 X .5 . I, too, must have the plugin type charger--that is such a plus! No more cords--arghh. I put all the AV stuff in a small biz class amenities kit (recycling!) It's marked w/big "AV" on both sides so I won't lose it. I have 2 sizes, so I can graduate to a big girl camera. So far, that one is most appealing."wherever you go, there you are"

Which camera did you finally decide on?

Have to check them out at the store, but so far, Lumix is on top. I just got a cool little connection kit for my ipad. It has SD and USB--works for flash cards and so much more. I can even link my keyboard, as well as the camera. It's very tiny--like an old zippo lighter. My kind of toy--portable and lightweight."wherever you go, there you are"

Happy Hunting! You can't go wrong with the Lumix. It has so much to offer.
