Pair the Olympus BLH-1 lithium-ion battery with the dedicated BCH-1 rapid lithium-ion battery charger for optimal charging power. Using these two together will give you maximum battery life with consistent charging performance, and ensure you get the most shots out of your battery every time.
Lithium-ion batteries stand out against other rechargeable batteries such as NiCad (nickel-cadmium) and NiMH (nickel-metal hydride) batteries for their performance and readiness. The lithium-ion cells have a much lower self-discharge rate than other rechargeable cells, providing more efficiency and power from a better charge. Rely on lithium-ion as the highest standard of batteries for optimal camera performance.
With a powerful 1720 mAh, the Olympus BLH-1 lithium-ion battery keeps you shooting for longer. You can rely on this lithium-ion battery for your E-M1 Mark II to stay powered up for hours on end. It will prove its worth and work hard for you, taking on constant recharges and handling overuse when you’re shooting every day.
Even in colder conditions, this battery keeps charging on, undisrupted by colder climates. Frosty temperatures will not pose a problem, whether you’re travelling or working at an event in cold conditions. You’ll be able to rely on your Olympus BLH-1 lithium-ion battery to perform in all conditions, and take on any situation.
The BLH-1 can be recharged approximately 500 times, so you can trust this battery will go the distance with you. It also features a dedicated case with an indicator window, so it’s easy to see how far charged the battery is without having to guess how much charge is left in it.
The Olympus BLH-1 lithium-ion battery is compatible with the Olympus E-M1 II camera.
We suggest keeping three batteries on you when you’re out shooting. One in your camera, one spare already charged, and an extra as a back-up. This ensures you’ll never miss a shot. Batteries will drain quicker if you are shooting video and if you are leaving your camera on in between shots, so it’s always a good idea to keep spare batteries handy.
The BLH-1 battery takes two to three hours to reach a full charge. The side panel window will tell you when it’s ready.
If you want to give your battery a boost, try the Olympus HLD-9 Battery Grip for E-M1 Mark II. It will power up your camera for longer, ideal for longer shoots or when using video.
If you’re looking for storage options, the ThinkTank DSLR Battery Holder 4 will help keep your batteries protected. We suggest having a minimum of three batteries on hand at all times so you always have a back-up. This holder will keep your batteries secure and in place when you’re not using them.
Check the dedicated case with an indicator window to see just how charged your battery is. When storing your batteries, we also recommend keeping them organised in your kit in a way that helps you remember which batteries are ready to use - for example, put all the fully charged batteries facing one way, and flat batteries facing the other way to help you remember.
