Electricians: Will this combo work on an EM1?

Planning my battery setup, based around the USB pack and dummy battery coupler. Ive been deciding between an EM1 and GX85, doing mock ups of each kit. The EM1 doesn't seem to have a cheaper coupler option, all i can find is this setup below which is $35 for the dummy battery, $135 total.

On the other side, for the GX85 i can get a much cheaper all in one for $20.

So my question is, can i use the grey dummy battery for the Olympus ($35) and hook that to the converter section of the Panasonic kit above? The converters should all be compatible with 7.2v output and the wire connectors look to be the same.

Anybody know if this would work? Both cameras have good and bad but if the Panasonic kit ends up being significantly cheaper due to accessories, that may be the deciding factor.

"Step forward and meet a new sunrise, A coward is shivering inside
Today I'll be a friend of mine, Who swallows suffering with smile
I drew a different reality, With unconditional loyalty
Ego hardly can be piqued, 'Cause I'm selfless
Scale armour blaze, Virgin innocence
One being brings life, Another runs for death
No promises I ever give, Don't rely on me and I won't deceive
The beginning or the end you can't tell
When I wave my fin and shake my tail
I grew in different normality, With unblamable morality
Hooks and nets are there for me, But I'm skittish
Scale armour blaze, Virgin innocence
One being brings life, Another runs for death
Neptune's child shivering inside, Drowns in the liquid gold
Cherished his life to the underworld, Meet me flashing when winter cries
Pisces swimming through the river, All their life against the stream
Searching for a hook to catch on and see their sun beam
Then suffocate in painful tortures, On cutting tables of callous men
Under a knife of handsome butchers, Emeralds are ripped away..."
