Testing Old Phone Chargers and Batteries

I have a couple of old Nokia 3230s and a Samsung S8000 Jet that I'd like to find out if they contain any photos etc before I bin them. I have a Nokia ACP-7X charger which I think might be from an older phone.

The charger won't charge the phone. Can anyone tell me how to test a phone charger and battery with a multi meter? I live in the UK if that's any help.

If the battery is removable just pop it out and use the multi meter to measure the voltage across the terminals.
If the batter is non removable, and it can be charged via usb, then you could use an inline USB test meter
