B&H has a Watson Duo Charger which will charge two batteries simultaneously. The charger is $75 or so, and the plates for each battery type are $2. Neat setup.

I bought one of these for a trip. Charges my E-P3 and E-P5 batters and my GoPro batteries as well. Nice % charged status for each battery too, can mix and max so you can charge an Olympus and GoPro battery at the same time.

It's doesn't work with the chips in the Olympus batteries, so not sure if that has any downside. Seems to be working all right so far.

Charges about 2x as fast as the Olympus BLN-1 charger that came with the camera.
