    It is not stated very specifically that the Li - 12B is compatible with the Li - 10C charger which is designed originally for Li - 10B batteries.
    If your camera is compatible with Li - 10B, then it should also take Li - 12B. The Li - 12B is slightly improved in performance from the Li - 10B.

    I have used the Li-10B previously and the Li-12B replacement gives improved performance thereby allowing me to take more photographs before changing battery. It is the same size as the Li-10B and therefore fits the charger that can with my camera. No problems whatsever.

    Never thought I'd write a review for a duff battery but seeing as I've got to buy yet another one for my Olympus C770UZ camera, I thought I ought.

    Purchased the camera (comes with Olympus Li-10B) and additional battery (an Olympus brand Li-12B) in 2005. Yes, quite a while ago but I'm not an avid snapper - mainly holidays and days out so the batteries have had light use.

    Upon receiving the batteries, I charged them up. The one that came with the camera, a Li-10B, took charge OK but the Li-12B wouldn't. I tried it in the camera anyway and it died immediately. Retailer suggested I accept a Li-10B in exchange so I did. What a fool - I should have marked one of them because after maybe 20 - 25 charges, one of the batteries started to weaken significantly. Even following a long charge, it would be completely flat after standing for a month. I kept it as a spare but it was pretty useless. Now, it's completely gone.

    I always treat the batteries carefully and take trouble to store them properly when outside the camera so I see no reason for the failures other than poor design or manufacturing quality. Or they are not really suitable for such a power hungry camera as the C770UZ and damage results from the high current drain?

    I read that Lithium Ion batteries exhibit `low self discharge (<10% per month)' and have `excellent charge-discharge characteristics (500 cycles)' - I wish!

    Another reviewer mentions similar problems with an Olympus Li-10B battery so my experience isn't an isolated case. Most reviewers though seem to be happy with their purchase, for the moment anyhow. Perhaps I've just been unlucky?

    Time to try out a cheap brand - couldn't be any worse, could it?

    5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. Elizabeth A. Stanley on 6 Sept. 2008
    I found these details and thought it might be helpful to others who might have problems with the initial charging:

    "A new OLYMPUS LI-12B battery usually maintains a discharged condition with very low capacity. It is highly recommended to fully charge new LI-12B battery packs before using. You can refer to the users' guide of your electronic device for charging instructions.
    A new OLYMPUS Digital Camera Battery pack needs to be circled (fully discharged and recharged) three to five times to reach its optimum performance.
    Rechargeable LI-12B Camera Battery will undergo self-discharging when left unused for a long period of time. Thus, it should always be stored in a fully charged state and kept in a cool, dry and clean place.
    To maintain the optimum performance of a OLYMPUS LI-12B battery pack, it is highly recommended to circle (fully discharging and recharging) it at least once a month.
    It is normal if a new LI-12B Digital Camera Battery gets warm when being charged or used. However, please pay special attention if the OLYMPUS Digital Camera Battery pack becomes excessively hot. This may indicate there is a problem with the charging circuit of the electronic device. Please consult a qualified technician if necessary.
    New OLYMPUS LI-12B Digital Camera Battery are hard to be charged. Sometimes, your electronic device may indicate a fully charged condition about 10 to 15 minutes when the new battery pack is being charged for the first time. When this happens, remove the battery pack and let it cool down for about 10 to 15 minutes then repeat the charging procedure. Sometimes, a new OLYMPUS LI-12B battery will suddenly refuse to be charged.

    Although the battery recommended by Amazon was incorrect for the Mju 700 digital camera, the marketplace supplier was very efficient in making a refund and getting the item returned, thus allowing the mistake to be corrected without too much fuss or hassle. Full marks to them!

    Invaluable! Slightly more powerful than the recommended battery for the Olympus C765, so thanks for a previous Amazon reviewer for pointing out the fact that this battery works with the C765 supplied charger.

    When I received my battery was dismayed the Li 12B did not make it clear it was compatible with the Li 10C charger. Made a telephone call to the Technical support department to find out the Li 12b is compatible. Then took time to read the reviews and low and behold the same problem outlined everything I had panicked about the night before! So lesson learnt in reading reviews first.
