Both the battery charger and--especially--the electrical cord are too bulky. These need redesign. When photographing in the field every cubic inch of space and ounce of weight is precious. At the very least a shorter electrical cord should be included in the package. Flip out contacts to plug the charger into an outlet would be a big benefit. Otherwise, the unit performs adequately
Standard Charger for BLS-5 and BLS-50
A good battery charger, compatible with all voltages around the world, and small in size. The only thing I hate about this charger is that it is compatible with the BLS-5 and BLS-50 only, and cannot charge the similar battery, BLS-1. Although the BLS-1, BLS-5, and BLS-50 are compatible with my E-PM1 and E-M10, I now have to travel with two chargers as the BLS-1 can only be charged using the BCS-1, and the BLS-5 and BLS-50 can only be charged via the BCS-5.Read More

Olympus - you built a state the of arts camera! Yet your battery charger is antiquated like a dinosaur. WE the photographer want SMALL. Something small and precise that can be carried and be adaptable-to plug directly into the electrical socket. GET rid of the long cord. If the rating above had a minus -4 star you would get that rating! Let's get with it! Please let me know once you have one! PEACH in AlaskaRead More
Small camera, big charger.
This charger came with my E-M10 and as it turns out there is something Olympus makes that I'm not a fan of. Instead of having a charger with flip out prongs to insert into an outlet, this charger has a detachable and bulky cord. The power cord takes up way too much space in my camera bag and other then cost cutting there is no reason for this design.
