View Full Version : Battery charger

One thing that has always ticked me off is a battery charger that does not plug directly into a wall. So, here's a trick: the "duck head" from a Mac notebook power supply fits the Olympus charger perfectly turning it into a wall charger.

I didn't discover this trick but thought I'd pass it on. The article is here (http://www.tuaw.com/2006/07/07/use-your-apple-power-adapter-duck-with-other-adapters/) (although they're showing the duck head attached wrong way around).

I picked up a duck head, attached it to my charger and it works.

There's duck heads for just about anywhere in the world.

Since I have many chargers, I took a cord from one of them and spliced it down to 8 inches for travel.
