Tested today, original battery on the camera, "fake" on the grip.
I have it setup as default, drain first the grip and then use the one on the body.
Battery capacity was displayed as the battery drained, up to the point were it started to flash red, at which point it jumped to the original one.
I was able to take about the same amount of pictures before the camera "jumped" to the original in the body.
I didn't made a scientific analysis, I didn't notice exactly how many photos I was able to get from each one, what I can say, is that it felt as the battery did as good as the original one.
I'm completely satisfied by the performance of this battery.
I can honestly say, I won't be buying the original one, I'll stick to the "fake"one if after a few cycles it keeps performing as it did today.
If anything changes as cycles come and go, I'll be sure to update.

***

It would loose it's capacity to hold charge, currently it's about 1/2 capacity compared to genuine.
NOT RECOMMENDED!!!

The battery and charger work really well in my OM-D. The battery seems to last as long as the one that came with the camera. The supplied charger will charge the original battery as well as the the one that came in the kit. Although I have not yet tried charging the battery in the car, the ability to do so with the supplied charger seems very handy. The kit arrived quickly. I would definitely do business with this vendor again and may order a second kit.

The battery and charger work perfectly fine in the Olympus OMD-M5-E camera. The charger even charges the originally Olympus battery with no problems. The charger is nice and compact so it's a lot easier to travel with than the one that came with the camera. The battery indicator shows on the camera for the battery also.

The problems
Don't expect to get the screen protector or Card Reader. They weren't included in my order.
The customer service from the seller is none existent. I sent an email asking about the screen protector and card reader and received no response.

Overall, it's worth the purchase (assuming you don't need any assistance from the seller). The battery is a lot cheaper than the Olympus one and the charger is way more compact.

I needed a back up battery for my M5 series Olympus camera for my beach trip over the long weekend, and I found this small kit and was pleased to discover that the charger could be used in my car! This was perfect as we were driving from place to place I could charge up between uses and I never ran out of power. I wasn't even worried that I couldn't charge the battery one the charger that came with the camera, that one only work in the house anyways. This portable charger and long lasting battery was just the thing I needed for my family beach trip and will come in handy for trips ahead of me.

I bought this battery over a month ago so I can have a spare while on vacation. Initially it seem to work ok even though I got less shots with it compared to the Olympus battery, but it was still over 100 pictures. Just a day ago, I was only able to get 51 pictures and a 34 second video out of a fully charged battery before it died. I don't know if the battery is defective or the charger since the battery seems to get charged up rather too quickly, approx 1 hour, which may be the problem. Meanwhile the longer I use the Olympus battery, it appears that the amount of pictures I can take on a fully charged battery appears to be increasing from when I first got it. If I were you, I would save my money for an original Olympus battery unless you want to spend $20 for a cordless charger and the othe accessories that I have not used yet. The charger does work with the Olympus battery.
