4.0 out of 5 stars Functional, but not an exact copy.
The battery works in the Olympus charger and displays the charge remaining on my E-M1. Fit in the camera and grip is good. However, the battery supplied was not as pictured in the first two seller photos, rated at 7.6V but as shown in the third photo, rated 7.2V. Battery life on the two copies I purchased seems to be around 300 shots.

For the money, OK.

3.0 out of 5 stars Working in the charger coming with the EM-1, but...
... As written above, these are 7.2V versus 7.6V for the original Olympus BLN-1 parts. Hence, shorter battery life (significantly shorter, although I don't have a precise number in mind. Around 100-150 shots would be my guess).

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid backup, 25 Jun 2013

Having relied on this as a backup a handful of times now I can say that it does not last quite as long as the official Olympus battery. It has also, on occasion given a low battery readout randomly that is corrected by turning the camera on and off again to refresh the readout. I also found that when stored with a little juice left in it over a few days it would discharge to empty.

Despite all this I think these are great value for money and on those occasions when you're sure you'll be running down the official Olympus battery you can charge one of these in preparation and be sure that it'll see you through the rest of the day.

I'm buying a second one, mad not to at this price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the OEM - only cheaper, 23 Jun 2013

This review is from: Ex-Pro BLN-1 High Power Plus Replacement Lithium Ion Digital Camera Battery for Olympus (Accessory)
I've bought a number of Ex-Pro batteries for different cameras and they've all performed well. In day to day shooting i've not noticed any difference in performance to the OEM versions. This is no different and at near a fifth of the cost of the original is a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Replacement for the BLN-1, 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ex-Pro BLN-1 High Power Plus Replacement Lithium Ion Digital Camera Battery for Olympus (Accessory)
Charges in the Olympus battery charger, and seems to give about the same life in the camera as the original Olympus BLN-1, and for around a fifth of the price: So far so good, but time will tell if it has the same longevity as the original.

These work exactly the same as the original battery - only they are like a 5th of the price!

Essential gear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works for me!, 22 Oct 2013

This review is from: Ex-Pro BLN-1 High Power Plus Replacement Lithium Ion Digital Camera Battery for Olympus (Accessory)
Cracking price, charges in the Olympus charger, seems to work in my new E-P5 just like the (much more expensive) original Olympus battery - can't fault it.

These batteries are great. I have had several Panasonic and Olympus cameras in the last few years, always ordered one of these as back-up and they are virtually indistinguishable from the makers' branded ones, at a fraction of the cost. Excellent working capacity and shelf life. Can't rate them highly enough.

Unlike previous BLN-1 'copies' this one really is chipped properly and can be charged in the Olympus charger. So you don't need to think whcih charger shall I get out this time. I've always found Ex-Pro batteries etc well made and good value. This follows in that mode. Shame that Olympus and the other OEMs overprice their 'originals' to such a great extent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good cheap spare, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ex-Pro BLN-1 High Power Plus Replacement Lithium Ion Digital Camera Battery for Olympus (Accessory)
It works which is a good starting point - It charges fine (so far) in the original Olympus charger and it's a lot cheaper than an original Olympus one - Marked down as I can only seem to get around 250 shots from it when fully charged. That siad, it's great to have as a spare :-)
