Re: How many spare batteries do you need?

I am wondering how many batteries do you need for a camera. I have a EM10 and a PL5 which both use the same battery. I ordered two spare batteries (one for each camera) but in a fluke the company doubled my order and is sending me 4 batteries. I am trying to decide whether to go ahead and pay for the extra two, so that I would have two spares for each camera or to return the second set.

What would you do?

I have one spare battery as part of my normal kit, but I hardly ever need it. If I'm doing a few days away, then I'll need it around the end of the second day typically.
