Olympus PS-LBH1 reviews

PS-LBH1 W Battery Holder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A near-necessity... This is a near-necessity, and ought to be supplied with the camera. It just makes sense to be able to power the camera with disposable cells. My only real gripe is that the tiny ears that hold the cover on are awfully small. Granted, even if you broke them off the cover would still fit -- and in fact, you don't even need the cover at all. Still, I'd appreciate somewhat sturdier construction. Note that this battery holder will do you no good unless you put CR123A cells in it the moment it arrives, and store it in your camera case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's an absolute necessity, because... ...Olympus (apparently) no longer makes the original battery pack. (I had the good sense to buy a second one last year.) Unless the laws have changed, this is in direct contradiction to Federal laws that requuire manufacturers to supply electrical/electronic components for ten years after a product has been discontinued. Most cameras made in the last 40 years are dead in the water without the appropriate battery. Fortunately, button cells for most of the cameras using them are still available. Unfortunately, when a camera is powered by a custom Li-ion battery, and the manufacturer discontinues it, you're not far away from owning an expensive paperweight. Of course, the manufacturer will tell you that the camera is hopelessly obsolete, and now is the time to move up. Uh, manufacturer -- will you give me the full original price of the camera when trading in? Because you really should, you know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back-up solution for extended filed trip This product makes an excellent emergency back-up solution for extended field trips because the CR123 batteries used inside the holder have long shelf life and slow discharge rate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Essential Item Extremely lightweight, but well engineered accessory. What took me so long. Pick up batteries at the super market. Hope all camera systems have this high quality essential.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extends the life of a great camera Since the rechargeable batteries are no longer holding a charge, this battery holder for the Olympus E-500 will extend the life of a very good camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again Very useful product as it allows not relying only on rechargeable batteries, that can be good in places where power is not always available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from useful product to have useful as a spare battery since the batteries are commercially available, which is not always true of the propriety battery pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra Power is A Powerful Thing! I use one Battery holder in an Olympus E-500 Digital Camera and two in an Fl-50 Olympus Flash.
