What is the difference between an OEM digital camera battery and DuracellDirect's digital camera batteries?
Some people believe that no other replacement digital camera battery can replace the OEM’s battery. However, we aim to
prove that our aftermarket Olympus digital camera batteries work just as well, if not better. Our batteries will either
meet or exceed the OEM specifications, and each product comes with a one year warranty. All of our products also pass
various safety certification tests. Our products will match the OEM products on several fields, such as safety,
durability, and quality.
What different types of Olympus digital camera batteries are there?
Our aftermarket Olympus digital camera batteries can be made from one of four types of widely accepted battery types:
NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride), Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium), Li-Ion (Lithium Ion), and Li-Poly (Lithium Polymer). Each of
these chemical compositions is widely accepted because of their outstanding performance when used in creating battery
cells. There are slight differences between each type, such as overall life span, but these differences are usually
not noticeable to the common customer.
Why do Olympus digital camera batteries have different capacities?
Digital camera batteries can have different capacities for a number of reasons: different chemical cells, sizes, number
of cells, just to name to a few. The capacity, which is measured in mAh (milliampere-hour) is listed on your replacement
digital camera battery. Usually, a bigger battery will indicate a higher capacity. However, at times you will find two
batteries of the same type with different capacities; again, this can be for any of the reasons stated above, or more.
How long will my Olympus digital camera battery last?
Your new replacement Olympus digital camera battery should last for several hours of use on a full charge. Attaining a
full charge can take up to four hours of charge-time, depending on the remaining capacity when charging began. At times,
you can even reach 80% capacity within the first hour of charging the battery. Overall, the total life span of your
digital camera batteries is roughly 500 discharge / charge cycles, or two to three years.
Customers should be aware that these averages can change depending on how the battery is used and treated. Extensive
use of the battery may deplete its total life span. Also, improper care of your battery can greatly decrease its use,
or even cause a short circuit.
How safe are Olympus digital camera batteries and batteries in general? How do I take care of my Olympus battery?
DuracellDirect aims to provide customers with only the safest replacement Olympus digital camera batteries, chargers,
and other products. We make sure that all of our aftermarket products pass various certification tests, and earn
certificates such as RoHS, UL, FCC, and CE.
When handling your aftermarket Olympus digital camera battery, avoid any extreme temperatures. This includes freezing
temperatures, and extreme heat (such as leaving your battery in your car for too long). Make sure that your digital
camera battery does not come into contact with water, as this can disrupt the cells and cause the battery to become
defective. Any physical damage to the battery, by means of throwing or dropping it, should also be avoided. Either at
the end of your replacement Olympus digital camera battery’s life span, or in case your battery becomes defective
beforehand via physical abuse or leaks, be sure to recycle it.
