I have an FZ-18 that I am very happy with and use regularly.
My battery is taking longer and longer to charge.
I tried to get a Wasabi battery as a replacement, but the Wasabi required so much pressure to fully engage the contacts and allow the clip to lock it in, I was afraid I would damage the camera.
Blue Nook very graciously sent me a second Wasabi battery, but the second one would not even go in far enough for the clip to lock. I could not even close the cover to the battery compartment.
I have looked inside and the camera contacts look perfect.
The original Panasonic battery locks in with minimal pressure and works okay.
It just takes very long to charge.
I would really like to get a replacement battery and Wasabi usually gets good reviews. Blue Nook certainly has been very nice over the phone. I just wish the battery would go into my camera without a struggle.
Anyone have any idea why I could be having this problem?
Has anyone bought a Wasabi for the FZ-18 recently and were there any problems?
