IIRC, a while ago there were some new requirements regarding lithium batteries -- they had to be installed in a device (e.g., camera), in original packaging, or in protective cases (e.g., plastic battery trays). The idea was to prevent contact points on two lithium batteries from coming contact with each other because this posed a fire hazard.

Not sure if this requirement still exists or is being enforced, but it is one reason I wish Oly provided the same kind of plastic tray for the BLN-1 battery as they do for the BLM-5.
