    Went for a week long missionary trip to Honduras. Need to make sure I had enough batteries for the job. I took over (1000 3 mg each) pictures a day. This battery lasted a whole day. Loved the speed of service by B&H. I ordered it Wed, got it Friday (without additional rush service) and left for Honduras Sat!

        What's to say? It's a rechargeable battery: it recharges and, when charged, powers the camera (in this case, an Olympus EP L3.

          Comments about Pearstone PS-BLS1 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 1100mAh):

          Bought one before my trip to Alaska so I would never be without power for my camera. Switched it out every other day with the battery that came with the camera and charged the one I wasn't using. Worked perfectly. Have only used it for a few weeks so can't comment on how long it will last, that's why I am only giving it 4 stars.

                I have used knock-off batteries before and they are not worth what you pay.
                These are half the price of the mfgr batteries and work as well so they are well worth the money.
                I am impressed...

                Have not found a drawback to them yet....

                  Used in my pen cameras, EP1 and EPL1, they are a decent additional battery for when you need more than one. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that they tend to run out of steam just slightly faster than the original Olympus batteries, but given the fact that they are only a fraction of the price, you can get a slew. :-)

                      It's a great battery, i use two of them when i'm out for a long time so i don't run out of power unexpectedly, so i can e prepared. Two batterys will be enough power for long trips, tourism or long photo shootings. It doesnt recharge that fast, you can re harge it at night at it would be enough time for it to charge. It wont damage easily.

                            bought as an extra battery for Olympus EPL-3. Works just as well as the supplied Oly battery, at a much more affordable price.

                                    Comments about Pearstone PS-BLS1 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 1100mAh):

                                    Went for a week long missionary trip to Honduras. Need to make sure I had enough batteries for the job. I took over (1000 3 mg each) pictures a day. This battery lasted a whole day. Loved the speed of service by B&H. I ordered it Wed, got it Friday (without additional rush service) and left for Honduras Sat!

                                      Just got it and don't know it's performance. But it is a cheaper alternative as a back up battery. I trust B&H knows what it sells to call itself "the professional source" and wouldn't sell it if it gets complains.

                                        Fit perfectly in my new Olympus Pen E-P3 and charged it in the Olympus charger. Just as many shots as the Olympus battery.

                                          I take many photos & videos the PS-BLS1 like the original has plenty of power left on a single charge after extensive use the only difference I see so far is better value.
