Default I need a Casio QV-R4 battery charger (BC-20 for NP-30 Li ion

Where can I get a battery charger for my Casio QV-R4 camera?
One of the prongs broke off the plug on mine.

I called Casio and they said the item is on backorder. Maybe
they can get me one fairly soon, maybe not, but I'd like to know
what my other options are.

Anyone know of companies that sell them, or people that would
sell a used one? I checked ebay; nothing at the moment.

Alternatively, is it possible to repair or work around a broken
plug? The plug unit is a small thing separate from the actual
charger, and slides into it. Since it's not the charger itself,
just the plug, that's broken, I wonder if there's a workaround?

Thanks a lot for any advice!

Default Charger for Casio NP-30 battery

Dear Robby,

I don't know which country you are in so I can't tell you where to buy it. But, Casio's NP-30 is equivalent to Fuji's NP-60. You might want to look around on the web for places that sells digital camera batteries. They usually sell the charger too. Try look for Fuji NP-60 instead of Casio NP-30, you should have better luck with it.

Thank you very much for the tip! I'm in the USA, by the way,
in Champaign-Urbana, which, if you're far, far away, amounts
to "near Chicago, IL".

My web search suggested that there were sets of compatible
batteries as far as chargers, but I wasn't sure. A couple of
the OEM chargers that said "NP-30" on their web page would
then say "NP-20" once I clicked on the "Buy Now" button.

I called one of those places, which honestly admitted to the
mistake and told me not to buy the item. So I became wary
of even the ones advertized as NP-30 compatible.
