After some experimentation at home, and getting decent results, decided to leave my Nikon D90 home this vacation and try just using the TG2.

Sure enough 3 days into vacation - the camera starts doing weird things - starts up, no visible signs of water and seems ok but none of the buttons work.

Look inside, no water, re-seat battery, memory card - same result. I even checked for a firmware problem - still buttons not working and camera can't focus or do anything but take one picture at whatever Fstop and focal lenght it started up at.

On a tip from my brother, I swap in the OEM Olympus battery and presto - no more issues. Camera works fine and has worked fine for a month since.

Note that all three batteries appeared to work fine for the first few days.

It seems like enabling the GPS and altimeter pieces put extra load on the battery and maybe the voltage drops and cause the camera to spaz out.

Not sure if this is a defective battery, bad battery design or maybe even a touchy camera, but as my brother indicated he's had it happen many times with cameras and other devices using off brand batteries . . . . . well keep it in mind I guess.

Shipped very fast and works well. Plug n play. The batteries seem to last a long time. I hesitated to purchase because it was so inexpensive. I glad I did buy them now.

The charger and batteries work wonderfully. The batteries fit snug in the charger and were refueled in a couple of hours. The charger also had no trouble recharging the OEM battery.

This is a great deal and arrived exactly as described in the ad.

I was hesitant to order this product because there were a few less than stellar reviews. I can say unequivically that the product is an excellent substitute for the Olympus LI-90B. Both the batteries and the charger work perfectly without any problems. I experience none of the problems described by others. The package arrived with only the charger and the batteries were missing. I was quickly shipped two batteries at no charge to resolve that problem. I have to tell you that I think many reviews on Amazon are written by people who aren't capable of screwing in a light bulb let alone reading the directions on how to do it. Buy this product with confidence.

I bought the wall charger and batteries. The batteries are generic and not made by Olympus so that's misleading. The bigger problem is the wall charger clearly says made for Li-50B and not 90B. It will not charge my batteries nor my original battery. The light is not functioning correctly and the batteries are not charging. It appeared to work initially - I bought it in August and used it sparingly for three months and now it isn't working. I too it to the the store Battery Plus and they feel it's the wrong charger for the battery.

I have not been happy about this purchase. Am looking to replace it. I don't recommend buying this product.

The batteries included with this are NOT the Olympus brand battery that are shown on the product page. They are generics that are not to the same quality and capacity as the Olympus branded batteries. They do not hold a charge as long. Nor will they last as many cycles given my experience with these generics. The vender should update the photos to show the actual product and be honest about what they are selling.

They gave be the extra charge that I needed for a vacation. However, the charge doesn't last as long as the original olympus battery.

I was very disappointed when I received the batteries and charger from Amazon yesterday. From the picture and description you would think this is an actual Olympus battery, but it is not. It is a no name battery and it looks cheaply made. I spent a lot of money on the Olympus TG1 and I am not going to risk putting a generic battery in it. The picture should not have a battery with Olympus on it if it is not an Olympus battery - that is false advertising. I did not try them and will not, it's not worth it. I will be returning these batteries and charger.

Cheap but works. I have a Olympus TG1 and TG4. The product is exactly as shown in the photo. The battteries work fine in the TG1 and TG2.

Not sure how long the charger or batteries will work....but at this price if it only works for a year....that is fine.

My daughter has a similar camera and I ordered one of these for her.

Not sure how someone could give a negative review. Does not make sense.

The charger is good (I'd give it 4stars) the batteries died after about 15 recharges (I'd give them no stars-- thus the 2 star average). I'd sure expect way more charges. We were on an extended trip and their lack of holding a charge proved to be a problem for me. Fortunately, the Olympus battery that came with the camera stayed strong and picked up the slack left by the BM "non"-premium batteries.
