I love the fact that this charger has a cord. Others have complained about it, but I love the fact that I can set it on my desk to charge and not have to bend over to plug it in. It charges the battery, doesn't get too hot, charges quickly. I suppose having the option to plug in directly as well would be nice to make it more versatile and accommodate a larger audience, but I would never use that feature.
Clumsy and antiquated...why in 2018 does Olympus sell a battery charger AND a cord? Why are there not prongs on the charger body itself so that it can plug directly into the outlet, rather than having to carry two items around to charge a battery?? One of the few things Olympus can learn from other manufacturers is what modern chargers are supposed to look like.

The charger is great, it charges the battery. Could use a shorter power cord though.

Charger for the BLN-1 Battery - Essential as Olympus does not allow USB in camera charging. I lost one in a hotel room. Expensive to replace. The cord add additional bulk. I baught a cheap plug in adapter that allows you to plug directly in the wall socket without cord
