Somehow I've misplaced the battery charger for my FZ20 :sad:...are there third-party chargers that will do the job, or do I need to order a new one from Panasonic?

Argh! Even worse, the panasonic.ca website, when you click on "accessories" for the FZ-20, doesn't list the battery charger :O. Does anyone know how I would get one?

Here's a link to a 3rd party charger you can get on Ebay for $18 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...508022023&rd=1

Thanks for the third-party charger links, folks - very much appreciated. Especially in light of what Panasonic has told me:

Hy-Tech Electronics, Panasonic's parts rep in Canada, informs me that a new charger must be custom ordered from Japan, will take 3-6 weeks to arrive, and will cost "more than $50" when it does arrive.

There's something to be said for standard-size batteries in a camera!

Just to close this thread out, I purchased the third party av-mp77u from Eagle Imports - it works great. Thanks again Amiroquai and genece!

You can always go with a DPS 9000 external battery also.

It comes with its own charger and you can shoot hundreds

of photos with it!!!
