    Hello All :)

    Can anyone recommend a third party battery to replace the Olympus BLS-5 or post some information about their experiences using third party batteries?

    Cheers :)

    I used 3rd party Olympus (years ago) , Nikon, Ricoh and FuJI - all worked similarly to the their own. If there are any differences, I do not notice it. Probably all these batteries are being manufactured in the same country from the same components, and I will not be surprised if at the same plant.

    I have been using DSTE batteries in my E-M5 & E-PM1 & they work like the Oly batteries but perhaps slightly shorter life.

    My experience with third party batteries is a crap shoot.... almost all have shorter lives... its just a matter of how much shorter.

    I would recommend buying a couple BLS and maybe another third party for backup. Probably the best experience I had so far is with Wasabi.
