There are, but without the PTC (Positive Temperature Control) function, on the Olympus chargers, to prevent overcharging.
PTC uses a third contact to the battery.

Given how short the battery life is on a mirrorless (compared to my dSLR), I WISH Olympus would make a dual battery charger.
I currently have two chargers for my EM1-mk1 and two for my EM1-mk2, because . . .
I have five batteries for my EM1-mk1, and four batteries for my EM1-mk2.

I have a EM1-X now and have no battery issues. I can go out and shoot over 1000 images at a sporting event and it ma yonly have used 50% of one battery. I remember the EM1-2 battery drain.

My experience has been that Olympus mirrorless battery life is more based on power ON time than number of shots.
I shot a tennis match, 1,000+ frames with my EM1 and still had about 50% power. That was less than 2 hours of shooting.
When I shot a baseball game (about 350 frames) and basketball quad match (over 1,000 frames), the EM1-mk2 battery lasted about 3-1/2 hours for both.
