I have yet to do the upgrade but will be watching the thread because I have never found the battery life to be particularly amazing to be honest. My Nikon D3s bodies would shoot 2500-3000 frames per charge on a single battery.

I do think the EM1X should have had a single large battery that filled the whole of that bottom space, with a separate carrier to take the smaller batteries if required.

Mirrorless takes more current vs DSLR's (Same for my EOS R vs my older 5DSR), but when I compare it to my EM1 II - it drains much faster.  I think it's related to the new Firmware - but let see what others will say.
