The charger is super handy to have around
on March 12, 2016
Okay given the price. The charger is super handy to have around. If you can live with the limitations below. This may be a good alternative.
1. The battery indicator on the camera (TG-4) will not be giving an accurate reading when using this battery. My camera shuts down with two bars showing on the indicator.
2. Despite being rated at 1900 mAh, these batteries performed worse than 1350 mAh-rated genuine Olympus LI-92B. I tested the batteries that have gone under about 6 months of very light use by how long I can record HD video before the camera shuts down. Genuine battery recorded about 97 minutes. These recorded 87 and 88 minutes.
(1) is a bit of problem for me, as I often take the camera under water. I have been working around this problem by starting my dives with fully-charged ones. You will have to devise a way to physically label/tag fully-charged batteries. I use rubber bands.
