I lost my battery charger and can't find the replacement charger for my brand new Rebel XS EOS 1000D.

I could not find an OEM number in the manual but the number in the manual for the charger is:

LC-E5 (withoutpowercord) LC-E5E (with power cord).

The modeland specs printedon the Canon battery are:

Battery pack: LP E5

7.4v ; 1080 mAh (Li-ion)

Is camera model (Rebel XS 1000D) too new for replacement chargers to be on the market?Are there other compatible chargers that will work just as well. I'm dead in the water and cannot usethe camera until I can find the replacement charger. Also, please give me numbers and locations for replacement batteries.

Thanks very much,

Les Blough

Answer to my own question: B&H has it and I've just ordered it at a good price. I'm a journalist in Venezuela and they have "gone the extra mile" to solve the problem. Remarkably, the Canon corporation didn't have it. They said they didn'thave it because the camera model was too new - i.e. too recent. Bbut B&H had it! Go figure.
