Hi all,
Does anyone have experience charging a USA issued charger in Europe? (Namely the FZ-10)

I'm guessing that the charger has an internal transformer, so it should be no big deal if it is used on a European power grid, provided I have the right (physical) socket adapter.

Thanx for any insight.

The input is 110V to 240V 50/60hz. I believe in europe it is 220 to 240 50hz.

You should be fine. you will just need the plug adapter to plug it in with.

Thanks Bob,
I just got a 1GB card and a couple of spare batteries. I'm going over there over the New Year's vacation.

I did take my FZ10 to Europe last summer and I didn't have any problems with charging it there.

The only problem may occur when you want to put AMERICAN plug into European outlet (they have few different outlets in different countries: the outlet from Germany differs from the one in Cyprus)
