Seems to work just as good as the original

I purchased this battery to use as a backup for my Olympus Stylus tough 6000. As it is i never actually had problem with the standard Olympus battery that came with the camera, but i felt that it could not hurt to purchase a back up battery, especially when you consider the cost!
The product cam in a timely manner as with all amazon purchases and was packaged pretty neat.
I used the camera over the weekend for a Halloween party and i had this battery in use, and boy did it work well! I took about 60+ photos (all @ 10mp with the flash on) that night and (as with all pics) they were each reviewed a couple times after the photo was taken. I even used it a bit the next day and the battery still has charge. I'm going to use it some more today and see if i can drain the charge a bit to get an idea as to how many pics i can take on a full charge.
If there is any complaint at all, it's that when you first put the battery to charge it stops charging after about 2-3 minutes, this could mislead some into thinking it is fully charged at this point, when in reality it isn't. When this happens all you need to do is remove the battery and charger from the outlet and plug it back in and leave it for a few hours till you KNOW it should be fully charged. It should be noted that some people get this same problem with the official Olympus battery, so it's not a problem specific to this product.
Great item here folks; buy it if our camera uses it, at such a low price (i paid about $7. USD for it) you cannot go wrong.
