DIY Camera Battery Charging Station

I have two Oly cameras and a dual battery grip for one. I have lots of batteries. I wanted to cleanup the battery charging situation and this charging station is the result. It has two Olympus chargers for the BM-1 batteries and one charger for CR-V3 LiOn batterries. I trimmed the power leads and then soldered them together to one plug. I made the power lead short, cause it sits on my workbench, but you could leave it long. I epoxied the chargers to the wood base. The wood base give the chargers some heft so they stay put. I find it works very well. The addition of a power switch would be nice.
