    As anyone had any luck finding any aftermarket batteries that will charge in a OEM charger?

    I suppose it may be difficult for aftermarket makers to introduce something like this at a sensible pricepoint. OTOH, the opposite (aftermarket chargers able to charge the OEM battery) is common. You don't nessecerily have to carry around two different chargers.

    I dunno what model camera your looking for, but I bought a couplea GX1/G3 batteries from this place Batteries and Battery Chargers - Laptop Batteries, Digital Camera Batteries, Camcorder Batteries, Data Cables, Power Adapters - BestBatt.com based on some threads I read here.

    The batteries charge in the factory chargers... which is nice since I didn't want to have to juggle different chargers... and charge level appears to communicate with the camera... I haven't run one outta juice yet, but this was another advantage of this brand that I had read about.

    They are about twice as expensive as the cheapest aftermarkets I found on Ebay/Amazon... two batteries cost around $30 shipped... shipping was really fast too.

    Hope this helps.

    I guess it would have helped if I told you I was looking for an extra battery for my OMD. Sorry about that.
