Functional battery

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The battery works like it's supposed too. The reason I purchased from Crutchfield was the price and the company's reputation

Pros: Quality Olympus product Great price

Cons: None

It's a battery

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's a battery: you plug it into its charger, and then you use it until it is depleted. These tasks it does very well.

The only significant additional information would be that the Olympus branded batteries tend to hold their charges longer and can be recharged and used for more cycles than the cheap alternatives sold for a quarter the price or less. It's worth spending more for the OM battery rather than dealing with short-lived batteries.

Pros: Olympus brand is unmatched by the cheap imitations

Cons: Price is up to four times more than the cheap imitations.
