This may be of interest; I've just spotted that Cameraworld are selling the Olympus BLS-1 battery for 29.99 http://www.cameraworld.co.uk/ViewProdDetails.asp?prod_code=PON06J000106&MProdCode=PON10A000167

WARNING - IT HAS BEEN DRAWN TO MY ATTENTION THAT THIS APPEARS TO BE A THIRD PARTY BATTERY RATHER THAN OLYMPUS BRANDED AND THEREFORE MAY NOT BE QUITE SUCH A BARGAIN.

You might like to know that SRS microsystems are selling on Ebay genuine BLS-1 batteries for 20 with free postage.

They have plenty of them, SRS have a good reputation on this forum as they are a Offical Olympus dealer.

Cheers
