Testing the DSTE batteries on the E-M5 (non-scientific)

I put a newly charged DSTE battery in my E-M5, used it to take 5 videos total of about 10 minutes, 259 pictures using mostly EVF (probably about 50 by using the lcd), and with a fair amount of reviewing using the lcd. The battery indicator turned orange finally. I continue shooting for 243 shoots and the battery is still holding up. I finally gave up shooting, thinking over 200 shoots after the indicator turns orange is good enough for me. So, it definitely can last over 500 shoots if you use mostly EVF and limited amount of reviewing using the LCD.
