See Olympus's page on the BLM-5 here
<https://us.buyolympus.com/lithium-ion-rechargeable-battery-blm-5.html>

At the end of the blurb is says this about compatibility
----------------------------------------------------------------
Note: This battery also replaces the BLM-01 battery. However, it cannot 
be charged in the Li-Ion Battery Charger BCM-01 as noted above.
----------------------------------------------------------------
In other words, the batteries are compatible but the chargers are not. 
At 1620mAh the BLM-5 is presumably of higher capacity than the BLM-01.
