    Does anyone know if the third party chargers will charge the original BLS-5 battery? I'm looking to reduce the amount of chargers to carry around on holiday with me and hope a simple third party charger will charge everything :D 

    Thanks, Pj

    No idea, but my E-PL5 charger charges aftermarket batteries...

    I have a third-party charger I got off Ebay. It charges both OEM and third-party BLS-1 & -5 batteries. It lacks the safety shut-off that the Oly charger has, so you should remove batteries from third-party chargers when charging is complete.
