    Watson BLS-5 reviews

    BLS-5 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 1100mAh) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked fine for a year, then died At first, I had no complaints about this third party battery. It worked fine and held a charge almost as long as the Olympus version. However, I have had the battery almost exactly one year and it stopped holding a charge a few weeks ago. The original Olympus battery that came with my camera (purchased at the same time) still holds a charge just fine. Now, even after fully charging the Watson battery, it will only power the camera for a few minutes before the camera turns itself off. I would not repurchase this item.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Battery Life 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from high quality low cost alternative batter I bought it for my trip and it works great as an extra battery backup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Fine I purchased 2 WATSON batteries in June 14, for my STYLUS 1. I traveled for 3 weeks in South Africa on an African safari. They work as well as the Olympus OEM battery. I couldn't determine if they got the same number of photos as the OEM, but it's very close. ON 3 occasions I ran out of power with 2 batteries and had to put in the 3rd battery I shot over 900 photos on each of those days. I didn't use the Olympus OEM charger. I used the Hahnel uni+. Charges almost every 7+ volt Li battery and AA-AAA batteries.
