    Having purchased many batteries of all types and doing mounds of research, I came to the conclusion, it pays to get brand name batteries. Especially when you are using them for an expensive DSLR camera. Camera manufacturer's won't warranty your camera, with an off brand battery. It's also been my experience, many off brands don't last as long, have higher rates of problems, and just aren't worth chancing on an expensive piece of electronic equipment. Get the brand name, along with the guarantee, and end your worries.

    Cheaper than from Olympus' website but the pair I bought were manufactered in Aug 2010. Lithium Ion batteries have about a three-year shelf life whether used or not, so I figure on another year-and-a-half of use. But it's only about 65% of Olympus's price (39 vs 59).

          Comments about Olympus PS-BLS1 Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery:

          I have bought after market batteries in the past and have had sketchy results. Always better to buy the name brand battery for your device, may cost a little more than off brands, but well worth the investment versus the frustration of constantly changing out your batteries. They do last longer.

                      I purchased this battery as a backup for my Olympus Pen 2.
                      I'm a believer in remaining with camera batteries that are brand specific. There are generic batteries available but too many customer reviews have expressed dissatisfaction with their performance, regardless of camera brand. Having a battery not perform during an extended trip could certainly dampen a photo enthusiast's enjoyment of his or her journey.

                              Comments about Olympus PS-BLS1 Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery:

                              It takes about 3.5 hours to fully recharge, however it has good longevity. Very easy to install in camera and definitely much better quality than non-Olympus brand batteries that are available for the Olympus E-620

                                I needed a backup battery for longer sessions and first ordered an "off brand" from [...]. Even after the first charge, it lasted for 10 minutes. Total. Complete waste of money. Wish I would have gone with the correct Olympus battery the first time. These are great batteries, long-lasting.

                                Comments about Olympus PS-BLS1 Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery:

                                Original batteries tend to be more reliable in the long term than the third party batteries so I like to stick with the originals even with the inflated price.

                                There isn't much to say, it is a battery and it works the exact same as the battery your camera came with. You are probably a photo enthusiast so you need a spare battery and this one makes the most sense.

                                4 stars because it is still expensive and a little slow to charge.

                                If you are a photo enthusiast (which you are, because you own a micro 4/3's camera) you need a spare battery. This is that battery.

                                I like to stick to original brand batteries as they tend to be more reliable in my experience (your experience may vary! i said MY experience!)
