    There's a lot on eBay, which ones did you get?

    I ordered one for my EPL1 and the darn battery gets stuck in the battery compartment each time and I have to pry it out. I don't want that to happen. Which seller is reputable?

    What's with the encoded/decoded batteries??? Why do they all need a separate charger?

    I bought these. They charge with the original charger but, despite the higher mAh rating, they seem not to last as long as my original BLN-1. I will have to do some tests to determine the actual differences, though.

    Just bought pair of EZOPower batteries, after members here confirmed the batteries can be charged with OEM charger. I haven't received them yet so I can't comment on their performance.

    Thought about getting Wasabi batteries as many members here have been using them without issues but the last thing I wanted was to carry around an extra charger.

    You can use the Wasabi battery charger to charge the OE batteries without any problem. Also the Wasabi charger is much smaller than the Olympus charger.
