Third party battery works with E-M5 but can’t charge on normal Olympus charger.


As you know yesterday there was that amazing (and suspicious) deal selling three E-M5 third party batteries for $11,3 each! The deal was available on eBay (Click here). Today the store “dstebattery” sent out that info: “Very sorry sir,before we sent the battery to you,our colleagues in the inspection department find that this battery can’t charged by your original charger,but can put the battery into your camera charged by AC adapter,or use our Brand charger.The battery work well in camera,can show battery level. In order to solve the problem, we can give you a $8.99 charger for free (battery is on eBay (Click here)).

It’s really disturbing to learn about that kind of limitation AFTER having purchased the battery. As soon as some of you got the batteries let us know if it really works fine. Would be useful for 43rumors readers to learn if we can trust these third party battery resellers or not! Thanks!
