Thanks for all the comments. Seems there is little consensus on battery treatment. I did fully discharge and recharge the original battery twice before getting just 160 or so shots on the full charge.

Someone mentioned the EVF using more juice than the LCD, but I never noticed this in years of using my G1.

I guess I'll just monitor future battery life. Will definitely be looking for another original battery as the Synergy has proven on a couple of occasions to fall far short in useful life.

Just remember that a person's opinion may change or even reverse it's polarity depending on whether he is fully charged.
