BLS-1 GENUINE batteries for 4.99 Alert!

Another mega alert:

Calumet on E Bay

4.99 plus 3.99 shipping

I can confirm they are genuine - I bought one last week. I e-mailed them to check before buying as I could not believe the price! They come boxed.


Plenty available!

Dear Dave,

Perhaps we should call it BLS-1 bargain Sunday on the forum!

Cheers

Chris

Re: BLS-1 GENUINE batteries for 4.99 Alert!

I just put the product code on to there web site and it comes up with a genuine Olympus batterie at 60. So i think i'm going to buy one. Also on the Ebay listing it calls them Olympus BLS1's there no mention about them being 3rd party.....
Wish me luck
Regards Steve

Nice price, but the 3.99 postage for EACH battery is a bit cheeky....

They have to earn money somewhere. Still cheap.

What is needed is someone in Milton Keynes to pick them up and post them on to the lucky winners

Because the 7 day shop items are compatibles, not Olympus originals. If you check the price of the Olympus item elsewhere you'll see why it's such a good deal!

Re: BLS-1 GENUINE batteries for 4.99 Alert!

Well my alert had quite an effect. If you look at the sold data on the listing, between April 22nd and May 5th, they had sold 4 including my purchase but in the last 24 hours another 20 went and the listing has been pulled with 6 still available! I hope that I haven't been blacklisted by Calumet!

Well i'm glad i got mine before they pulled the plug. According to Ebay it has been dispatched. Just wish i'd bought 2 now. I will let you all know if it's a Olympus when it arrives, but i am confident !
Regards
Steve

I rotate several 3rd party batteries with my Olympus originals and I honestly cannot notice any difference.
