Have come across a couple of non-OEM battery makers that look to be very high quality. Has anyone used either or have any opinions:

Delkin
Energiser (Technuity) 3 Year Waranty

I use the non specific Delkin RCR-V3 and they perform very well in Sigma and Olympus cameras.

Thanks for the input Manstein. I had never come across Delkin before and was looking at their website and they seem quite big in the US and also seem to have a very good level of quality.

They have a few distributors in the UK listed on the website.

Jim they should work OK in your Oly 5060 but they arent cheap. Sorry just remembered they went back to a proprietry battery with the 5060 didnt they?
