Canon Battery Charger (CB-2LS) + UK Adapter = Saved $

Okay, this one may seem like a no brainer, but I’m happy to report I saved a few bucks today.

I’ll be going to visit my mother in the UK soon and wanted to make
sure I could charge the batteries (NB-1LH) on my Canon PowerShot S500
while there.

I did a quick search on www.froogle.com and www.ebay.com,
and genuine Canon chargers cost around $50-70, however I did find some
OEM one’s for around $20 + s/h, but I still thought that was a bit much
for something we’d probably only use once or twice in the life of the
camera.

Then it suddenly dawned on me, the charger we got with the camera (CB-2LS) is rated at 110volts – 240volts. Duh!

So all I would need is a UK adapter for it. I remembered I’d gotten
one when I first moved here many moons ago, so fingers crossed it’s
going to work. I think the adapter only cost me a few dollars :)

Hopefully this will find it’s way into google and will save others money too.
