I got the two batteries and charger shortly before going on a vacation to California where I planned to take a lot of pictures. I took the Wasabi Power batteries and charger as well as two original Olympus batteries. I liked the Wasabi Power charger because of the option to charge in a car or by AC power.
I was not disappointed. My camera with optional electronic viewfinder went through batteries fairly quickly and I was glad to have plenty of batteries on hand. I used the Wasabi Power charger as my only charger and it worked flawlessly. I did not count exposures that were taken with the various batteries but I can say that the Wasabi Power batteries performed at least as well or maybe a little better than the Olympus batteries. The other big advantage of the Wasabi Power charger and battery kit is the much lower cost and the flexibility of the charger.
This appears to me to be a great product and I highly recommend it.
Any and EVERY time that we need spare camera batteries and a charge, we purchase Wasabi packages like this one. That would be for about 4 or 5 cameras so far over 3 or 4 years. We have never had a single complaint. It is affordable, and the charges last a reasonably long period of time between charges. We will continue to purchase Wasabi batteries due to our good history with their product.
The charger works well. The batteries last only 10 minutes. Buy the charger somewhere else and get the original Olympus batteries. Addendum: contacted the seller who gladly furnished two more batteries. The performance on these is comparable to the original Olympus batteries. Must have gotten a bad lot the first time.
