Camera Battery Life

  Quickbeam 11:33 06 Dec 10

I've just sent for a second spare Energizer OLS1 equivalent for an Olympus BLS1 on account of the one that I bought last February lasts about 50 longer than the OEM one from Olympus. The specs are the same, 7.2V 1150 mAh.

Has anyone else experienced the original batteries being a bit of a letdown?

The Canon Lithium-Ion LP-E6 battery on my Canon camera give me approx 1400 shots per charge, so will not bother with third party ones. I have two of these in my camera. The biggest problem ios remembering to do a recharge.

I do wonder if the OEM one was substandard from new, I've always found the original Sony/Minolta ones to be better than the third party ones.

Strange really, because they do say that some oem products might come from the same production line to that of the originals, identical except for re-badging?.

Same story with a Nikon D40X. The generic replacement lasts a good deal longer than the original, same spec Li-ion.
Not quite the 50% your getting but a good third more. We were suspicious of the original though as it seems to charge very quickly.
