Can anyone recommend a source for a spare K-BC90 charger ?

Now that I have the K-1ii, I'm looking for a spare charger and I want it with optional 12V input.

There are a lot on Ebay that declare themselves as compatible with the BC90 (or able to charge the LI90 battery), but ...

All those shown (except for some expensive sorces in Italy/Germany that don't send to Israel anyway) have only 2 contact points instead of 3 and show their output as 4.2V while the BC90 as 8.4V for output.

Any recommendation will be appreciated.

Ben

Be aware of cheap and possibly low quality third-party chargers.
One option:
digibuddy - High quality rechargeable batteris and charging technology
Ladegerät digibuddy 5401 passend zu Digitalkamera: Amazon.de: Elektronik

Or use an multicharger like the Braun models.
BRAUN PHOTO TECHNIK GmbH » Universal charger

Some Multichargers are even usable with 5V USB in.
Unipal Mini

Offers like this made me start this thread. As pictured, it will not charge an D-LI90.

The picture appears to be a 'representative' one and is the same one used for all of their chargers. Regardless, the third pin is not necessary for charging.

If you want OEM you could try KEH Camera used department. They don't have any chargers for the D-Li90 at the moment but you never know when used items can show up. They should ship internationally. Prices on used AC adapters and charges are usually quite low, under $20 USD.
