Can anyone recommend a good BLS-1 clone?

I am looking for a couple of good BLS-1 batteries, & dont want to fork out for the Genuine Olympus ones. Can anyone recommend a good alternative please? (or if someone happens to have some genuine ones for sale at a non genuine price please let me know)

Hama is a good make and lasts as long as the Oly original, steer clear of the really cheap ones like INOV8 from places like 7 day.com as the tend to go flat after about 80 shots, at least that as been my experiance.

I have a blumax, about 12 from Premier Ink IIRC. Can't tell the difference in use.
