Do OM-D and EPM-1 use the same battery?

    I own a OM-D and I just bought a refurbished EPM-1 as a second body, mostly intended as a back-up camera during trips and I wonder if they share the same batteries of if I have to buy new ones for the Mini as I already have Wasabi spare ones for the OM-D. Will I have to travel with two different chargers?

    Thanks.

    I have the OM-D and am also looking at picking up an EPM-1 as a backup. The OM-D uses the BLN-1 battery and the EPM-1 uses the BLS-1. Unfortunately they are not compatible as far I can tell.

    I have the Wasabi charger as well for the OM-D, I wonder if you can use a different battery plate and just carry that?

    Unfortunately yes, you will have to carry both. The batteries are different and so are the chargers.
