    Hi, I've got an Olympus C-7000 camera. I needed a spare battery so I bought
    one on line.
    The vendor suggested I buy a battery from him that was more powerful than
    the battery that came from the camera, After loading the fully charged
    replacement battery I noticed my camera took several seconds longer to
    startup and I only got about 3/4 of the photos I got w/ the stock battery.
    If I tried to use the video function it used up the replacement battery very
    quickly. I finally bought a replacment battery from Amazon and my camera
    takes many more pictures before the battery runs out of juice and starts up
    very quickly.

    Are all ono OEM replacement batteries less powerful than OEM batteries?

    Is it standard procedure to represent batteries as being more powerful than
    they are?

    That's insteresting, thanks.
    I was naive and thought the vendor was really trying to help me.
    My instincts told me to cancel the order and I should have but
    the vendor begged an pleaded with me not to cancel. Just
    another online hustler.

    The battery I bought that doesn't have anywhere near the power of the OEM
    battery came from an online vendor called "Blue Nook" they also sold me a
    card reader for the camera that was way overpriced and the postage and
    shipping charges are very high. Overall, a mail order outfit with inflated
    prices and shoddy service, in my case. In the future I'll stick with well
    known vendors and stay away from the likes of blue nook as they are too
    expensive in time & aggravation for the craP they sold me.
