Just checked on Amazon, and noticed they now have Innov8 batteries listed (more expensive that the ones requiring a separate charger, but still half the price of the Olympus originals).

Not in stock yet, but I've used Innov8 with no issues for years - with performance indistinguishable from the original manufacturer batteries. I'd consider them to be of similar quality to brands like Hahnel. Perhaps some decent aftermarket batteries are finally on the way.....

When I'm on computer rather than IPod... Search for Olympus BLN-1 and the Inov8 battery is 27.60... Comes after the list of cameras.

Cheers,

Jon

I have used the InoV8 alterntive as a spare battery for my Canon S95 which I use for underwater photography. It is good but chargetime is about 60% of the original Canon battery.
