If you think you'll be disappointed in a year when the batteries begin to swell so badly that you can't get them into or out of your camera, then look elsewhere. I don't know if it's a quality control issue that leads some people to have this problem and not others, but I certainly did, and I'm admittedly pretty disappointed. I also don't know if it's a problem that occurs with all of this company's products or just these batteries in particular. I have two backup batteries for my Fuji X-E1 made by Wasabi, so I guess I'll see in a year's time whether this is something I can expect from them on a regular basis. In the meantime, I'll be avoiding the brand.
EDIT: Just 5 minutes after posting this review, I contacted customer service, and they shipped me two replacements with no hassle for a small shipping fee. Upgraded the review to 3 stars, and I'll upgrade it further if the replacements do better than their predecessors. Great customer service is worth a lot; thanks guys!
I had a PEN-E-PL1 with two batteries and was told by the camera shop when I bought the E-PL2 that the E-PL1 batteries would work in the E-PL2 but they won't. The E-PL2 battery has four contacts and the E-PL1 battery has three. However the E-PL2 batteries work in the E-PL1 camera and the E-PL1 batteries charge in the E-PL2 charger. Just for your information and not related to the quality of the Wasabi Power battery for the PEN E-PL2.
The Wasabi Power battery for the PEN E-PL2 looks like it is very well constructed, identical to the original battery and comes with a cover for the contacts unlike the original battery. Charges fine in the charger and works fine in the camera. I highly recommend it.
I like the charger better than the Olympus charger, too. It's better for travel because it has a folding plug rather than a long cord like the Olympus charger. For the price, these seem like a better option than buying a spare Olympus branded battery.
The batteries do have the fourth smaller connection spot the same as the BLS5 which you cannot find on the BLS1. They are in gray-white color the same as the BLS5. I use them for my EPL1 to replace BLS1. They do charge quicker but they don't feel to last longer than the BLS1. Anyway with these two batteries plus the old BLS1 I don't worry about it too much. These batteries can also be charged on the Olympus BLS1 charger. I did it twice for emergency because I forgot to bring their charger.
In addition, I am very surprised with the car adapter and European plug allowing me to charge it in the car or travel in Europe. This is never provided from Olympus! What a thoughtful idea.
I am not sure if the listed 3-year warranty is true or not but I am also very happy to see such long warranty of this set. Base upon the battery quality produced by this company. I highly recommend it and their other products.

This is a reliable battery that lasts as long, if not longer, than the manufacturer original. The Wasabi brand changed my mind about third-party batteries, which in my prior... Read morePublished 1 month ago by NewsView
Compact and last long enough, similar to the original batter supplied by Olympus. You will need this as the batter life on Olympus EM 10 is quite short. I always carry 2 batteriesPublished 2 months ago by arrythmic
