OM-D spare battery behaviour

I recently bought the non-Olympus spare battery from Bestbatt. It is fully charged according to the green light on the charger that came with it. When I switch the camera on it indicates full. When I take just a couple of pictures it immediately shows a red "almost empty" warning. Then when I switch the camera off then on again it shows full again, and indeed this continues for many more shots, suggesting that it is indeed still full. The original battery doesn't seem to behave that way. Is this a defective battery, or some other issue?

Thanks,
