Is it really wise to trust a $1k+ camera to a $12.99 battery? One developed in a hurry?

Not nervous, you are right, in an email I send to Olympus, they told me to not use other thirdly batteries

There is a lot more than just a battery in there, there are power management chips as well. I really wouldn't want to be the involuntary beta tester that finds out they didn't quite get it right.

So until Oly supplies my local store with an official battery that they've developed, and that they'll fix or replace the camera if their battery messes up, I think I'll stick with just one battery.

God is the tangential point between zero and infinity.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

God always take the simplest way.
