Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Fits and works just like the original Olympus battery, both in the camera and the accessory charger that I bought on Deal Extreme.
- Build quality is quite adequate. No problems at all.
Cons:
- Capacity seems a little lower than the printed rating. My camera kills these batteries in about 40 minutes (~ 40 photos and 20 minutes of video clips).
Other:
- I bought three and rotated them through along with the original Olympus and aftermarket Vivitar-branded battery. I didn't do a formal timed test, but I was able to kill these faster in my camera than the original and Vivitar cells.
Bottomline:
In spit of the fact that they are a little lower in capacity, for the price they are great. I bought three for a reason, assuming correctly that I could cycle through 5 batteries in a day before recharging.
I'd definitely buy these again and highly recommend them.
