DO NOT BUY!
on September 16, 2012
I purchased 3 of these to have as back ups. I take a lot of videos and pictures and you couldn't beat the price. Despite coming with "Olympus" packaging the batteries I received are fakes when compared to the battery that came with my camera. The first way to tell is the fact that the original battery gets around an hour of video time and a few hundred pictures before it completely drains. The ones I got off amazon? No where near as many pictures and at best 20 minutes of video time if you are lucky. The second way to tell is just by comparing them side by side you can tell the by the font of how Olympus is written on the original compared to the fake ones. Maybe I just happened to place 2 separate orders that just so happened to have all the batteries be fakes but I doubt that. I will be contacting Amazon to return these and I am extremely disappointed that they would allow these to be sold.
