Wasabi battery dead, wasn't used very heavily

I thought Wasabi was supposed to be the good bad brand, now it looks like it might be just another bad one.

After all of my experience, I’m sticking with Pentax brand. Can’t rely on other manufacturers.

I've used several types of hahnel battery over the last decade or so with no issues. I'm not aware of them being any different to own brands.

How long did yours last ?  Mine lasted for 3 years.

It's just a mater of the quality of the cells used to make it and those seem to vary no matter which third party battery you buy. Who ever makes Pentax batteries must test the cells before using them because they are so reliable, which is probably one reason they cost more.
