      Comments about Olympus BLM-5 and BCM-5 Charger Kit (100-240V AC):

      I haven't had enough time to get a strong opinion about it yet, but it seems to work just great! I came looking for it because my old battery for my Olympus camera was long gone. I haven't had any problems with it yet.

        I recently purchased the olympus power pack for my e-5 and knew I would need more batteries. I searched the internet but could not find a better price for this potent combination of charger and battery

            Comments about Olympus BLM-5 and BCM-5 Charger Kit (100-240V AC):

            I bought this product to replace the BLM-1's that have been slipping in photo counts on my E-3. Not much of an improvement. I fully charged them for a photo shoot at a horse show this past weekend. I am not happy at all with the results. This first pair of batteries net count was 87 raw shots...for 2 of them in my HLD-4. Ok...let's charge again. 142. Getting better but now where near the stated count by Olympus. IS was off. Screen was off after getting the settings correct. This just about makes me wanted to switch my whole set up to another brand. I waited for these to come out with the hope it would finally be a solution to the problem...I guess not.

              Used along with the battery originally supplied with the camera in a grip/battery.

              High quality Olympus product.

              Nice to be able to charge two batterires at once.

              To bad Olympus has missed the boat by only making batteries available with chargers and not separate.

                Charges quickly, like the grey color and blinks when the battery is not properly plugged in. It does get warm but not excessively so. Quality product - bought it as a backup for my Olympus E-5 charger. Best wishes.

                  The BCM-5 is not any faster (takes about 2.5 hrs to charge ) than the BCM-1/2...however the BLM-5 battery charge last about 2x longer than the BLM-1 battery with full charge.
