        Works in Olympus charger

              No need for a special charger. Works with the one that came with your camera. This is not true of many replacement batteries. Specs say charging capacity is a little less than with genuine BLN-1 but does the trick for me.

                I have have done any scientific test, but I have not noticed a significant difference in the run time between this battery and the OM battery.

                      As a back up battery for the OMD EM1 this works well. It can be recharged with the supplied Olympus charger which a lot of other options can't.
                      Simpler o only have to carry one charger.
                      Seems to last for less time than the original.
                      A good option

                          The battery looks and charges on the Olympus charger just like the OEM equivalent. So far I have not noticed a difference in battery life, time will tell.

                            Found this on B&H when shopping for the EM-1. Works just like the OEM at half the price.

                            I use this as a backup battery for my Olympus. The charge is not as good as the original, but at 1/2 the price its great as a backup.
