Re: FZ-18 Battery?

It sounds to me like the after market batteries are the wrong fit. I have had a similar, although not as bad an issue with an aftermarket battery with my FZ200. It will go into the camera, but only just and is difficult to remove, but once in I can close the lid without problems. The genuine Pana batteries slide in easily. I think you may have to get a genuine Panasonic battery to be sure you've got a good fit. I still have my FZ18 and when the first lot batteries were on the way out, they just ran down very quickly they didn't take longer to charge up. That was for 3 batteries, so that should be a good sample of how they behave. If they seem to be lasting the normal amount of time, then maybe there's something wrong with the charger.
