  • HELP! BLS 1 battery problem

    Noticed that one of my third party batteries (Blumax) no longer fits easily into the battery compartment of my EP-1. The battery seems to be bowed outwards in the centre. They haven't had over hard use, but I'm assuming that they are beginning to fail. Has anyone else noticed this problem with third party
    or Oly batteries?

    Thanks

    That can be a problem with cheap batteries. They begin to swell & that is a sure sign to get rid of it before it does damage to the camera & you.
