How many batteries (and chargers?) do you bring? (EM-1 mk I)

The EM-1 mkI that just recently plopped into my camera bag seems to be among tbe more power hungry cameras (at least relatively to the capacity of the camera battery).

As I'm soon to leave for a several days leisure trip where photography is the main activity, that makes me wonder how many batteries are necessary to bring - from the actual experience of those of you who have used this camera for some time now?

On such trips we often return to the hotel room late in the evening for sleep only, and leave again after breakfast. According to the manual the BCN-1 charger should use about 3 hours to recharge a fully drained BLN-1 battery, which make me wonder whether it will be necessary to bring also several (of the exorbitantly overpriced Olympus) chargers?

(I'm aware of discussions on use of non-original batteries/chargers (that in general seems to have slightly less capacity) to save cost, but we do not need to get into a discussion of pro et contra about this in partcular here.)
