Olympus BLN-1

Overview

Our take on the Olympus BLN-1

Don't get caught short when the party's still going but your camera battery's run dry. Get a second battery to pop in the camera (or the optional HLD-6 grip) for when you're away from a power source.

My experience with non-OEM batteries has been inconsistent so when I got my new OM-D M5 Mark II, I bought a spare Olympus-made battery. Works great so far and the price was reasonable.
