I can tell you from my years of experience that Olympus OEM batteries are, by far, the best value for the money, despite their seeming high cost. Why is that? Because they LAST. I still have the original Olympus BLM-1 battery for my circa. 2003 Olympus E-1 camera, and that battery still works and still holds a charge!
On the other hand, I've wasted my money on Wasabi batteries, and have had a 100% failure rate with those batteries after less than a year of ownership. Worst batteries I've ever used. Yeah, they work well for the first few weeks you own them, but it's all down-hill after that. Worst thing about them is they don't know hold a charge for very long, you need to use them nearly within 24 hours of charging them for maximum effect. But even so, after a few months of ownership, they don't want to hold much of charge no matter what.
I've purchased two spare Olympus BLN-1 batteries from Amazon so far, and they work just a well as the one that came with my most recent Olympus camera purchase. During a recent photo shoot, expecting to get no more than 600 shots before the battery died, I just kept on shooting when it got to that mark, just to see how long it would last. I gave up trying to kill the battery after reaching 900 shots, as I was running out of photos to take! That's near DSLR like performance from a tiny mirrorless camera. (Though a small trick for that type of long battery life is to shut off the rear LCD panel and use the EVF only.)
So yes, these batteries cost more, a LOT more, than those cheap knock-off's you can find elsewhere. But in the end, I've never had an Olympus battery fail me or go bad in fifteen years, not once. When you are on a trip, vacation or photo shoot and can only rely on the batteries that are in your bag, you'll be very glad you bought these instead of the sushi sauce batteries. Take my word for it.
However, it may be perception but the charge does not seem to last as long as retail store purchased ones. No scientific test but when I pull out the battery after it runs out quicker than expected I see that it is the one purchased from Amazon. Still breaking them in so I'll come back and update if their is a change. If not, I may start purchasing the cheaper ones.
