I would like to purchase a OM-D E-M10 II and I want an extra battery with it. Does it use the same battery as the previous version, the OM-D E-M10?

Does it come with an external battery charger?

Yes, they both use the same battery type. The E-M10 comes with a BLS-5 and the E-M10II comes with a BLS-50. They are equivalent as you can see in Power Supplies for OM-D / PEN series cameras. You can buy replacement batteries for the E-M10 and they'll work for the E-M10II.

Both come with a BCS-5 battery charger that can charge both batteries

  • \$\begingroup\$ Both dpreview.com and the Olympus product pages say that the OM-D E-M10 uses a BLS-5, while the OM-D E-M10 II uses a BLS-50. Is that a typo that just got repeated? Or are these two batteries compatible? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ They are compatible. Look here : olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/compati/pen_power.cfm \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Might want to edit to include that info, as well as the fact that the cameras both come with a BCS-5 battery charger. \$\endgroup\$
