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

          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.

                Can't Tell the Difference

                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.
