    Does anyone know if it's possible to get a 2 pin charger for the 511? I've seen other charges that have the 2 pin "plug" attached and they just fold up into the body of the unit after use.

    I have a 2 pin one that I do not need - bought from ebay as a UK type.... but it wasn't. Seller sent me another one that was UK as advertised.

    Now all I have to do is find it :rolleyes:

    As you can see I found it - flat prongs on the plug adaptor thing. Also has a car charger lead.

    If it's what you want PM me your address and I'll put it in the post. Next time you pass a charity box you can put what it is worth to you in there.

    Unfortunately it's not. I'm wanting a charger that has the 2 prongs attached. They fold into the body of the charger when not being used. There in no lead or adaptor required.

    Thanks very much for taking the time & effort though. Much appreciated.

    Apologies for jumping on your thread but....

    RobertP
    I could certainly make use of your charger if you're sure you don't need it. Glad to make a donation to the charity of your choice.

    It is no use to me. PM me your address. May not get a chance to send today now.

    I'll leave the donating up to you.

    You have PM & my thanks.

    Could you perhaps delete posts 2-6, 9, 10 & this one so Tony's thread is back on track?

    RobertP,

    Don't suppose you fancy trading yours for the UK version with a lead and 3 pin plug? Unused and same model No.

    Witters - I could do that. I just wanted to keep a complete set should I sell it sometime. You going to USA and travelling light??

    I use the ebay one (with UK plug). The Canon one just stays in the box.

    The travel adaptor is not included as I want to keep that for other things with strange plugs on them.

    PM me if you want to swap and I'll reply with my address.
