Good inexpensive back-up battery
on 7 October 2010
Had the battery a couple of months and have now had the chance to give it a good work out on a trip abroad. It charges in about half the time it takes the original Olympus one and consequently lasts about half as long in similar conditions, i.e. good daylight with only occasional flash. I used to go out with both batteries fully charged and never ran out of power. Be careful not to spend too long reviewing your shots though as this will help deplete the batteries. To summarise, this was an excellent buy as a back-up battery for my Olympus Pen E-PL1. Superb value compared with Olympus original. If it comes to an early demise I will up-date the review.
After only moderate use the battery has progressively failed to maintain its charge in a satisfactory manner and on the most recent charge only managed to produce 10 photos and has of 20 July 2011 been confined to the re-cylcling bin. Downgraded to 1 star.
