With one in my camera and one in my pocket i can shoot all day, even on the coldest days.

Both genuine and counterfeits batteries processed in Vietnam will have the misspelling "explose" on the label.
Brad Hutchinson
There is something wrong inside the battery, it is out of the return period and I can't afford a new one.

I ordered this battery from a third-party seller. It was not from Amazon or even a camera store that I'd heard of. I didn't examine the packaging closely enough to realize this is either a fake battery or one that is purposefully underpowered. I charged it overnight and took it for a photo walk and the battery died in less than an hour of light use. When I got home, I compared the "fake" battery to the battery that came with the camera. They are clearly different. Since I needed a real spare battery, I went to a local camera store (an authorized Olympus reseller) to buy a new battery.

I uploaded customer photos to show the difference between the US batteries and the fake one. The differences are obvious upon close inspection. If you can read the fine print, the fake battery shows: "Max Charge Current, Voltage: 760mA, 8.4V" whereas the other two US/legit batteries show "Max Charge Current, Voltage: 1830mA, 8.76V.

In addition, the counterfeit battery weighs 1.6 ounces, and the legit batteries weigh 1.8 ounces.

My only regret is not saving the packaging to prove it's fake. I have asked the seller for a refund. I recommend that you purchase either directly from Amazon or a well-known camera store.

First off, my warning. Buy this battery from a reputable authorized retailer and avoid all others. I purchased on of these from a third party and it was 100% counterfeit just as another reviewer has mentioned (confirmed by Olympus). I have added photos to the gallery of this item showing how to spot the difference between the counterfeit and a genuine battery. View the end of my review for a summary as well.

The battery itself there is not much to say it is identical to the one that came with the camera if you have an OM-D or Pen E-P5 and will work better than any of the aftermarket batteries out there. I chose to buy a genuine battery because most of the aftermarket ones apparently do not work with the on camera battery gauge and I like to know how much battery life is left.

A confusing issue here is why Amazon has two separate pages and listings for the same item with different prices?

Now, for a summary of how to know if you got a counterfeit:

1. Counterfeits have the word Japan spelled with a lowercase "j" on the battery label
2. Counterfeits are the wrong weight. Real batteries are 50 grams, the counterfeit I received are 38 grams.
3. The battery terminals are an off color on the counterfeit.
4. The packaging on the counterfeit has a matte finish and the coloration is all faded. Packaging on the real batteries will be glossy and have rich coloration.
5. Genuine packages typically have a seal on top.
6. Genuine packages will include the battery inside of a zip-loc type bag while the counterfeits come in flimsy plastic bags.
7. The tabs on the bottom of the counterfeit batteries are rectangular and not square as they should be.
8. Both genuine and counterfeits batteries processed in Vietnam will have the misspelling "explose" on the label. Do not assume it is counterfeit just because of this misspelling.

Got the extra battery for the holder, and it is a life saver. Anyone who has the Olympus OMD-EM5 knows that there are usually 250-300 shots per charge on this battery, and it is almost imperative to have a backup in order to shoot all day.

Original battery is an original battery. Works to spec. And I am happy they kept the same battery as the E-M5 for the E-M1. I have had the E-M1 for a month now and Id say the battery life it just fine. I read somewhere that someone was only getting 250-300 shots per charge. No way that is true. I just recently shot a party and took 1021 shots and I still had a quarter battery left at the end of the night. I got another 200 shots in the morning and though blinking never shut off. If you shoot a lot, its nice to have another battery waiting. The actual charging does takes awhile in my opinion. Longer then my 7D batteries take to charge.

While the cost is a turn off, the product works well and allows 300+ shots per full charge. Worth the extra money in my book.

I bought 2 extra batteries for my Olypus OM-D E-M5 camera. The wonderful electronics of the camera drain the battery faster than my Nikon D90 (DSLR) drains its batteries, so I bought the extras for when I'm traveling. I'm glad I did. I only need two at home, but sometimes I shoot over 1,000 photos a day when traveling and spend time reviewing the results all of which drain batteries.

I don't care what camera you buy: you need a second battery (sometime maybe a 3rd). I learned this lesson a few years ago with a previous camera. This is especially true with all of the cameras that require you to view the screen in order to take a picture.

This battery seemed to run out too soon after the first charge, but after a couple full charge - full discharge cycles, it seems to be giving me the life I expect; which is several hundred shots on my OM-D E-M5.

I know that 3rd party batteries are out there, and may, or may not perform, but I've always had good luck with the name brand batteries I've bought.

I just got this battery for the OM-D E-M5 camera.... it is the same battery used for the internal camera and also the battery/grip compartment.

This was something I did not know when buying the Battery/Grip accessory for the OM-D E-M5, you have to buy this battery as it does not come with the Battery/Grip accessory.
