I just thought I would start a thread on the BLS-1 battery as I have mentioned it in the thread on this forum regarding the Delkin Dual battery charger.


Information about the battery can be found from the Olympus site


It would also be interesting to read any comments about this battery such as experience other manufacturers BLS-1 batteries. There are a lot for sale on Ebay for example.

I bought unbranded batteries off eBay for about 5 a piece. It's something I've done with a lot of camera batteries. Every time I buy, I always wonder whether they'll be any good/hold their charge etc. but it's a risk you take for the money you save. Besides, I can't imagine three or four of them not lasting as long as a single official battery. As luck would have it, I've never had any problems with any unbranded camera batteries.

Prohibitively expensive batteries seem to be a characteristic of consumer lie exclusively only to the west. In Hong Kong, for example, no-one expects a battery for anything to cost more than 1 or so.
