Always go with brand name

I was going to get a third party battery, but read that the original charger for my BLN-1 battery (that came with my OM-D) would not charge a third party battery. That concerned me. While I have read many people having success using them and using third party battery chargers for them, I am not ready to jump on the bandwagon.

I was going to get a third party battery, but read that the original charger for my BLN-1 battery (that came with my OM-D) would not charge a third party battery. That concerned me. While I have read many people having success using them and using third party battery chargers for them, I am not ready to jump on the bandwagon. When investing this much money in a camera system I love, I am more than willing to spend an extra $30 to get a battery that is guaranteed to work and designed by the same people that designed my camera. I highly suggest buying the original Olympus battery over a third party one. In the long run it will be worth it.

Just what I ordered

Necessary item for the OMDE5Ii. Batteries don't hold charge long so extras are critical

The real deal

By

For use with my E-M1. This is the authentic battery from Olympus. There are aftermarket ones that work well. But there are also knock offs that claim they are Olympus but are not. I have two of them, they work well but now that I have an authentic one I will compare.

pricey, but the best

Just works. Also, no concern about whether or not your Oly charger will work or not. Would give it 5 stars, if not for the price

Good Battery Life

By

Good battery life compared to the Panasonic batteries I was using prior to my Olympus purchase. I always trust OEM batteries more than third party and have not been let down with these. Wish they were a little cheaper, but still worth the price.

Oly brand is best

By

Over the years I have Olympus brand and after market brand batteries, and I think that the Oly brand is best. They seem to hold their charge better and deliver it consistently to the camera. Just beginning to get used to my new OMD-E-M1, so it's a little too soon to report on the battery in use, but I expect no problems. Charging time is like any other - 3 hours. Just need to get used to it.

Adorama Excellent, Mail Innov. terrible

By

Adorama shipped my battery the same day I ordered it. The only gripe I have is that Adorama used a mailing service called Mail Innovations to deliver the package. They took 5 days to deliver my order. It was shipped from Elizabeth, NJ to Greenwich Village, NY, literally 15 miles. First class mail usually takes 1 or 2 days. Fed Ex or UPS 1 day. My advice is make sure your package does not ship Mail Innovations.

It works! In freezing weather.

What can you say about a battery? Well, it works. And, it works when it's 10 degrees below zero! A week in February taking photos in Yellowstone NP and no problems. Enough said?
