Two batteries for a fraction of the price of one
on June 27, 2012
I was hoping these would last as long as the original Olympus battery, but they fall just a bit short of that. Not a big difference, but in my Olympus PM1, one of these seems to last about 70-80% as long as the original Olympus battery. I guess when you factor in the fact that you get two of them for a fraction of the price you would pay for one original Olympus battery, you are actually getting longer total combined life, and a far less expensive price. So that's a pretty good deal any way you look at it.
My only complaint is that, as another reviewer has mentioned, they show 100% on the meter until suddenly they are at 0% and shutting down the camera. If you get caught by surprise, you could miss some opportunities while you change batteries. But that is my only complaint, and at this price I almost feel bad about complaining about that, because by the time one of these batteries goes dead, you have been using it a long time and should expect it to give out soon anyway. Again, it lasts at least 70-80% as long as the original battery will.
So, all things considered, for the price these can't be beat.
