Re: Third party batteries for the EM1ii (and EM1X)

To follow on from my Dot.Foto battery comments;
I spent an afternoon wandering round a local reserve with a 2450mAH Dot.Foto battery in the grip.
I didn't fully discharge it, but it seems to compare favourably with a genuine battery's capacity.
As regards compatibility and the claimed in-built chip.
Both grip and camera registered the partly discharged battery as 63%. the ExPro Charger claimed 70%, but I immediately took it out and dropped it in a genuine Olympus charger.
Unlike the Intelsilo one, the charger seemed to behave and charged it up correctly, as far as I can tell.
The camera claimed 100% when I popped the Dot.Foto battery back in the grip.

The Intelsilo battery, in the genuine charger, claimed to be charging OK, but immediately showed up flat in camera, though it charges fine in the ExPro charger.
Best Regards
