Re: Any Reason NOT to use Aftermarket Battery on OMD5???

I used some rather cheap after market batteries a few month ago when Oly batteries for the OM-D were still unavailable.

They worked ok, however, they drained noticeably faster then the one Oly battery I had. They can not be charged in the original Oly charger (because it would overcharge them) and require their own charger (that came with them).

I made sure to mark them differently, and still use them for back up on travels.
