The bad news: After about 13 months of use the battery started to swell & bloat. It swelled to a point that I had to pry the battery out of the camera since it was stuck. I guess I could jam it in the camera, but would be a very tight fit, and likely would have to pry it out again. That said, I'm not going to use it any more.
Use of the battery averaged one charge a month, with one or two weeks during the year that would get multiple charges. I was also using an OEM Olympus battery along side this Wasabi Power Battery. Both batteries incurred the same usage and charge patterns. The OEM Olympus battery is actually slightly older, has a little more use under it's belt, but shows no sign of swelling, bloating, or any other abnormal deterioration.
Attached picture shows swelling. Battery swelled in the center, so you can see how holding it down on one end makes the other end pop up.
(My ownership time: 8 weeks)
Granted, I care for my batteries better than most but have had failures on other brands.
Not so on these. 5 stars and as an engineer, I very seldom rate anything 5 stars.
I don't know if it hits the claimed 2000 mAh, but its nearly 2x the life of a stock BLS-5.
I had a PEN-E-PL1 with two batteries and was told by the camera shop when I bought the E-PL2 that the E-PL1 batteries would work in the E-PL2 but they won't. The E-PL2 battery has four contacts and the E-PL1 battery has three. However the E-PL2 batteries work in the E-PL1 camera and the E-PL1 batteries charge in the E-PL2 charger. Just for your information and not related to the quality of the Wasabi Power battery for the PEN E-PL2.
The Wasabi Power battery for the PEN E-PL2 looks like it is very well constructed, identical to the original battery and comes with a cover for the contacts unlike the original battery. Charges fine in the charger and works fine in the camera. I highly recommend it.
