Is this for the E-5 or the E-M5? (I ask because the BLN-1 is the E-M5, but the E-5 is in the subject).

If you're looking for the BLN-1 for the E-M5, I've had good success with the Wasabi Power generics. They've worked very well for me, and I picked up two along with the charger for about $30.

Second Wasabi and also Power 2000 brands. Used both for Nex and older EP-3 with no issues. Amazon is easiest to order them from

Agree on the Wasabis. I picked them up for, I think, $23 or so on Amazon. You get a direct wall plug charger (very useful given the odd choice of Olympus to give a corded-only charger) and two batteries. I find that the 2 Wasabi batteries don't last as long as the OEM battery, but since you get two back-ups, it is still a pretty good option.

I am not using the OEM battery. I have 6 generic batteries + 2 generic charges ... and they all work just fine. But you have to be careful if you are using the vertical grip. One of my generics got stuck in the very tight compartment of the vertical grip and I've had to push/pry it out slowly. Apart from that, I've not had any other problem.
