    Can anyone please recommend a good third party battery. I generally am not a cheapie but the price of Olympus batteries is ridiculous. Thank you

    I have been using the DSTE BLN-1 batteries from day 1 for two years. Still going strong.

    On your recommendation just bought 3 and a charger on ebay for 27 dollars, thanks

    Amazon has the same 3+1 combo for $25 directly from DSTE manufacturer. If you are in USA, that might be a better deal.

    Thanks again. I am in Ireland so that one isn't an option here.

    Looks like you've already bought some batteries...

    I've just come across these on eBay, apparently they're decoded BLN1s
