This battery is advertised to be a replacement for a Pentax D-Li8 battery for my camera. It is not. Do not order this battery to use in place of the D-Li8 battery. The contact configuration of this Wasabi battery is not the same as the original Pentax battery. The physical size is fine, but the electrical configuration is totally wrong.
I attached a photo of the original battery and then the Wasabi next to its box with the identifying part numbers visible. In the other photo, the original battery is on the bottom and the new black Wasabi battery is on top. The contact problem can be seen. Be aware!
I bought the Wasabi Power Battery for Pentax D-LI8 and the SanDisk Ultra 32GB for my old Pentax Optio S Camera. I installed both and the on button lite up before I even turned it on but the display did not come on. The zoom would go in/out randomly. So I put the old battery back in and it still would not work. When I put the old SanDisk 128 MB back in, I was relieved that both batteries worked.
I use these for my work camera, where I typically take more than six dozen pictures daily. I bought two of these so I can maintain constant operation while one is on the charger. (Both my original OEM batteries began dying at about the same time.) I've had the Wasabi batteries for a couple months and, so far, they are meeting my expectations. I don't foresee any issues. And no "issues" is a good thing.
