    Does anyone know if there are any third party universal chargers that charge the original BLN-1 battery? I'm off on holiday soon and want to stock up on some batteries but can't afford to wait for the £65 batteries to come in and will have to opt for third party batteries!

    It seems most of the 3rd party batteries come with a charger. Mine is a Blumax, battery is fine and the charger also charges the original battery.

    OM-D E-M5, 9-18, 20, 40-150, O45, X100, Small Hadley, big grin!

    Thanks - I don't want to have to lug both chargers around and figured that most chargers will work. Anyone got any UK recommendations?

    I could not locate a 3rd party charger that worked with the OEM BLN-1. I did however locate a BLN-1 at a local camera shop. Shelled out $70 for it.... Nobody that had it for 50 or 60 had them in stock... That hurt! But now I can keep using the OEM charger for both.
