            charges faster, holds charge longer. What more do you want?Don't fall for cheaper batteries - they burn out earlier and don not hold a charge as well. I had to have 6 batteries in rotation to do what 2 of these do for me.

                  I have already been using Watson batteries with other cameras with great success. I'm a professional photographer working full time. I trust this product and it is worth the savings over the original batteries. Highly recommended.

                                  After using 2 of these and one Olympus-brand battery; these beat them hands-down; but not by much. The Oly-brand batteries are terrible to begin with, but at least these off-brand ones have a little bit of extra juice, and seem to charge faster.

                                        No need for a special charger. Works with the one that came with your camera. This is not true of many replacement batteries. Specs say charging capacity is a little less than with genuine BLN-1 but does the trick for me.

                                          I have have done any scientific test, but I have not noticed a significant difference in the run time between this battery and the OM battery.

                                                As a back up battery for the OMD EM1 this works well. It can be recharged with the supplied Olympus charger which a lot of other options can't.
                                                Simpler o only have to carry one charger.
                                                Seems to last for less time than the original.
                                                A good option

                                                    The battery looks and charges on the Olympus charger just like the OEM equivalent. So far I have not noticed a difference in battery life, time will tell.

                                                      I use this as a backup battery for my Olympus. The charge is not as good as the original, but at 1/2 the price its great as a backup.
