I had a difficult time buying a BLS-1 battery for my 18-month old E-P3. The BLS-1 battery and its charger (BCS-1) are being phased out due to a Japanese law banning trickle charging, i.e., low power topping off at the end of the charge cycle. Research revealed the new BLS-5 battery to be interchangeable with the BLS-1, the difference being the BLS-5 has an extra contact used by the charger. The official word from Olympus is it requires a charger with the 4th contact, the Olympus BCS-5 Battery Charger is needed for the BLS-5 Battery, so I was forced to buy a new charger as well. Luckily, the Amazon prices were good for both items.

The BCS-5 charged my new BLS-5 battery like a champ and the battery worked perfectly in my E-P3 as expected, yielding about 300 images per charge. Although the Amazon description warns the Olympus BCS-5 Battery Charger is only for the BLS-5 battery, my BLS-1 battery charges perfectly in it as well. After more testing, I found the BLS-5 charges fine in my older black BCS-1 charger too. Hmm, glad I don't have to carry two chargers and having a backup charger is good. But, sheesh, why does Olympus state these batteries and chargers are not compatible when they all work fine together?

Was delivered quickly. Needed another charger to accommodate the brand name battery I bought. Works fine! Switched to brand name because the generic batteries swelled up so bad they would not fit into the camera. The BCs-5 charged the BLS-5 with no problems. Happy so far.
