              Comments about Watson BLS-5 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 1100mAh):

              I bought this as a backup battery for use in my Olympus E-M10. I was surprised to learn that this battery arrived fully-charged and it seems to last about as long as the original Olympus battery on a charge. No scientific tests; but, it works just like the Olympus battery and costs much less. When I need another battery, I'll go with Watson.

              I bought 2 of these for my new Olympus OMD E-M10 camera. Same size, same specs, and so far, they last just as long on a charge. For the same cost as one Olympus BLS-5, I was able to buy two Watson BLS-5 batteries.

                    Great price and seems to hold a charge just as well as the original after a couple of uses. I'm looking forward to trying them out during long exposures for night photography.

                    I can't tell the difference in battery life or charging time between this and the Olympus battery. Great savings.

                        For most third party batteries, you expect the per charge span to be shorter than that of the original battery. I have not found this to be the case with this battery. It has a very long life and seems to perform just as well as the battery that came with my EPL-5.
