Was ordered as I had forgotten my original charger while on holiday and need this for use while away. The cost of the unit is rather high (as with other Olympus original accessories) compared with other manufacturers options but wanted to ensure this was the correct charger.
Again next day delivery was expensive but worked.
Overall satisfied with my purchase - an expensive mistake leaving my charger at home when I'm 4000 miles away from home.
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?
The long power cord (6 feet) that ships with the BCS-5 adds unnecessary clutter and bulk. I'd rather have a fold down plug. I found a couple workarounds for the long cord. The obvious one is to buy a shorter cord. It's a standard appliance cord so if you're lucky you have a short cord around the house. I saw a shorty on my wife's rice cooker but I didn't dare touch it. The Ziotek Notebook Power Cord, C7 Figure-eight Plug, 1ft. is only 12 inches long and works great: just long enough to work on a power strip but takes up little space in your carry-on. If you have an old iPod charger laying around, the power plug can be slid off (designed to interchange with Asian/European plug adapters) and fits the BLS-5 well, making for a compact travel package. A bit ugly--white on gray--but it works. If you want a prettier and slightly better fitting plug adapter, the Conntek 30001 Travler Plug Adapter is ideal.
All in all a good charger in dire need of a fold down power plug.
The two pins on the cable side does not meet the South African market, but it is the right charcher thanks
