Re: BLM-1 genuine batteries... or are they???

I've been using Hama BLM-1 equivalents for a couple of years - quite happy with them. The contacts are (or look to be) gold-plated, which might be a good thing. Only thing that puzzles me about these equivalents is why they don't come with the clip-over shields that you get with the Olympus originals - feels like a miserably petty bit of cost-cutting.

Looking for "bargains" from unknown sellers on Ebay has never much appealed to me.
