BLS-1 Battery E-400 E-410 E-420 Information views comments

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.

http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?p=10247

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.

Cheers

Chris

Re: BLS-1 Battery E-400 E-410 E-420 Information views comments

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.
