Re: FZ-18 Battery?

I've not heard of problems with FZ18 aftermarket batteries related to physical size.

I have an Impact IMCGRS006A which is exactly the same size as the original CGRS006A except that the Impact's 4 power slots are a bit wider than the Panasonic's

Is your Wasabi battery the same exterior size as the Panasonic?

If not, then it's likely the wrong battery.

My guess, however, is that the Wasabi slots have a bit of waste plastic in them which prevent them from seating properly in the camera. Take a look at that aspect. You should be able to clean the slots out with an Xacto knife or even a heavy needle
