Although the product description...
Weakness: average run time not as long as that of original olympus battery
Although the product description claimed that this replacement battery would last longer than the original Olympus, its average run time seems shorter than that of the original. However, it still has a serviceable battery life, so it is still useful as a backup battery.

Resonable quality at its price.
Strengths: Durable, stable in performance.
Weakness: Flexibility, price.
I will not write anything about the length of useage per charge, because it does not concern with the specific product. It depends on Capacity (mAh). In this case I assume that every brand doesn't lie about the Capacity. (There are some fake batteries or poor quality batteries that the Capacity is not accurate.) For this product, I've used it for months. The life time of this kind of battery is...

I will not write anything about the length of useage per charge, because it does not concern with the specific product. It depends on Capacity (mAh). In this case I assume that every brand doesn't lie about the Capacity. (There are some fake batteries or poor quality batteries that the Capacity is not accurate.)
For this product, I've used it for months. The life time of this kind of battery is about 300 full recharges. And during that period, I can say that the quality is pretty stable. Some fake batteries will work well for 5-10 times of recharges, after that the quality will change dramatically.
I use this battery for my camera. After full charged, I can take about 350 pictures. After many many times of recharge, I still usable for about the same amout (350 pictures). I used to have the cheaper one (fake one). It worked well in the first 10-15 times of charge. After that, GOD!. The number of the pictures I can take per charge reduced. I bought the fake battery last 2 month. Now, it works around 50-80 pictures per charge. My old Olympus battery still work very well at 350 pictures per charge.
Although it's a little bit more expensive than the fake battery, the quality is worth you money. Anyway, there are only a few cameras that use this type of battery.
PS. This product came with the dust cap.

Just geeps going!
Strengths: High Capacity
Weakness: Takes hours to charge.
I was concerned about the price of additional batteries when we bought our Olympus Stylus 500. It seems we may not need one though. On Christmas Day, we filled up three 128MB cards with flash photographs! That's almost 200 high resolution pictures (+a 14MB movie) on a single charge. I was very impressed with the battery.

The battery is small and...
Strengths: The battery is an original Olympus battery, made in Japan.
The battery is small and lightweight, easy to carry in any camera bag. It comes with a plastic cover to protect the contacts when it is stored outside of the camera. Since it is made by Olympus, it fits right into the camera or the charger.
