    I posted this to the original topic that Giulio started when the batteries first appeared on ebay, but wanted to give it its own topic so more people would be sure to see it.

    Long story short, I received my three-pack of batteries and travel charger today, and everything appears to work fine. The charger works with the OEM battery, and the third-party batteries seem to work fine in the camera and grip and report charge level just like the OEM battery (I fired off a few hundred shots to make sure that the battery level wasn't just on/off, and it did eventually drop one bar from the charge level).

    The current ebay listing for the batteries (which now include the charger as part of the description) is at DSTE 3PCS 1450mAh BLN-1 BLN1 Battery + DC133 Charger for Olympus OM-D E-M5 EM5 | eBay .
