    Hi folks,

    I have a Oly PM1 and a PL5.

    They have different battery designations though both batteries seem to fit in both cameras.

    I have a few questions.

    Can I swap batteries between cameras with no problems?

    Can I charge each batter with the charger for the other battery?

    If the batteries have the same voltage / ampere designations, you should be able to swip swap them. I'm talking from a general point of view here, since I don't own any the cameras in question. Yet, that is ;)

    Yes, the batteries are interchangeable, both cameras can use either battery just fine.
