I've been using the Wasabi's for a few days now and notice that once the battery meter shows one bar, the cell runs out of juice quickly. They're not 'hot' enough lol. The OEM Panasonic battery lasts a bit longer with a less pronounced rapid drop-off.

One thing I noticed was the OEM charger has four prongs and the Wasabi has two prongs. Seeing as how all the batteries charge in either charger, I've been experimenting to see if the four-prong OEM charger does a better job than the Wasabi two-prong. Seems equal so far.

So -- since I'm a 'slow shooter', and not too worried about missing a shot, I'll keep the two Wasabi's handy when out and use them when the OEM gets low -- and slap any depleted cells into the supplied Wasabi cig lighter car charger when needed.

I bought a couple of Wasabi batteries and a charger from Amazon, and have used them constantly for over a year with no problems.
