I really like its feature of being able to purchase adaptors for my different Olympus cameras.

If you follow the instructions (mainly to charge for a extra hour after it goes green) then you will have no problems with this using Olympus and 3rd party batteries.

This is great. It works with both factory and oem batteries. If you rtfm, you will realise that you should leave it on charge for around a hour extra after it switches from red to green. Perfectly charged batteries every time.

Disappointing

I've owned a few of these back when they were the Pearstone brand. I never had any issues with those. The batteries always fit correctly and the build was decent. However, this model has some issues. Mine arrived with a part rattling around inside. Okay. It can happen. The main problem is how the battery seats in the holder. It's a VERY tight fit, and never seemed quite right despite a lot of fiddling. My concerns were validated when the battery didn't actually charge. I'll add this is with original Olympus BLN-1 batteries. I'll stick with my Olympus charger and 90 degree plug (replaces the cord).

Better than original

Great compact charger for Olympus batteries, much cheaper and more useful than the original charger. Original Olympus batteries fit well.

question

Can you use an original OEM Olympus BLN-1 battery on this charger? Will it charge as effectively as the Olympus charger?
Asked by: Stephen Z.
I use both OEM and Watson batteries without problems. I don't test the charges with voltmeters, but the charger has worked perfectly for me both at home and abroad (Europe, Africa). I prefer the compact size.
