olympus BLM-1 replacement
I'll be needing to get a replacement battery for my E-30. It's the BLM-01 (aka BLM-1), which is used in most of the E-series DSLRs. Does anyone know of a reliable aftermarket battery? Or should I pay the freight for a genuine Olympus-branded battery?
(I ask because some aftermarket batteries don't properly synch with the charging and battery life circuits, resulting in incorrect reporting of how much charge is actually left in the battery. This is a problem with Leica, I don't know if it is actually a problem with Olympus E-series).

If you're willing to buy a new battery and charger set, go for the BLM-5 that came out with the E-5. They have additional capacity and seem to last much longer in use than the BLM-1s.
