    Merry Christmas to you people!


    As I stated in the title, I may need your help if possible.

    My family and I came in Melbourne from Adelaide for this festive season.

    Before we came here I packed almost everything, our two camera PM-1 and PM-2, lenses lil tripod, memory cards, laptop (with cord). I wasn't worry too much about the battery coming with no extra ones, because I can shift them between the two camera in case one would get flat suddenly.

    The worst part is, I forgot the charger home, and the batteries are almost done (one is flat already).

    Now, if there is someone around Melbourne willing to charge our batteries or to borrow for a couple of hours their charger would be more than appreciated. I can even hire one charger from you guys, thinking that you won't gonna charge holiday rates :tongue:.

    Otherwise we won't gonna be able to take pics for the NYE with our lil bubba here in Melbourne.

    Any input from you would be great.

    Thanks

    PS we are located in Greensborough, but I can drive around no probs.

    Would that I could, but I'm on the wrong side of the pond to help.

    Have you thought about calling local camera stores? If one carries Olympus you might be able to borrow a jump start from them, especially since you're from out of town.

    Good luck!

    Good on you, Jim, for trying to help. I'd like to help but even though I'm on the "right" side of the pond all I have to offer is those darstedly Panasonic chargers that don't work on that Olympus system. Never mind hope that it all work out and fmrvette gets a charge.
    Cheers

    Almost any camera store carries universal chargers that will charge Olympus batteries no problems.
