    Hi, has anyone in the UK used a third party battery BLS-5 in an Olympus OM-D E-M 10. I am looking for one that i can charge using the official Olympus charger rather than having to carry 2 chargers.

    Thanks Mark :smile:

    I bought two EZO Power batteries for the E-M1. They charge in the Olympus Charger.
    I'm guessing they make the equivalent for your camera.

    The good
    They are cheap.
    They do charge and they do work.

    The bad
    They don't last long.
    They die without warning.

    So I bought a second genuine battery and will eventually buy a third one.
    The EZO batteries will be binned, they are not worth the weight of carrying them. Don't make my mistake.
