I'm wondering if I can use an el-cheapo AC adapter to power this camera (or any other digital camera, for that matter).
I own a £5.99 Universal AC-DC Adaptor that I use for my CD player, practice amp, etc., and I'm wondering if it's safe to use it on the E-100RS.
-It has 4 connector types, one which fits the E-100RS perfectly!
-It has a polarity switch that I can set to conform to the the E-100RS.
-It has a switch for 3, 4.5, 6, 7.5, 9, and 12V voltages
On it, it lists the following specs:
Input: 230V~50Hz 8.7W
Output: 3,4.5,6,7.5,9,12V 300mA 3.6VA(max)
So my question is: would this work? if so, which voltage setting should I use? what would the drawbacks be if I use this instead of the ridiculously overpriced Olympus chargers?

You can try www.ebay.com. I found the following AC adapter for the RCA Small Wonder camcorder:
You need this one: Product Description:

Required: AC 100-240 V ( 50/60 Hz ) Voltage Provided:
Kodak has 3 types of charger that can be connected to a wall socket USB AC Adapter - is especially useful when traveling, away from your computer, or just plain on-the-go. Connect your camera's USB cable to the adapter and plug it into a wall outlet to conveniently charge your camera. 5V AC Adapter - Provides in-camera charging for all KODAK EASYSHARE M and V Series Digital Cameras Input: AC 100-240 V 50/60 Hz Output : DC 5.0 V 3V AC Adapter - Provides direct power to your camera but it will not charge the camera battery Input: AC 100-240 V 50/60 Hz Output : DC 3.0 V
* You need to check the type of adapter your using. If your using the 5V AC adapter or USB adapter and the camera won't charge the battery contact kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK) for possible repair.
(In addition to the batteries provided with the camera, the following types of battery can be used. Choose the power source best suited to the situation.
AA alkaline batteries/ Oxyride batteries
The number of pictures that you can take may vary considerably depending on the
battery manufacturer and shooting conditions.
AA NiMH batteries (rechargeable batteries)
Olympus NiMH batteries are rechargeable and economical. For details, refer to the instruction manual for your charger.
(Lithium battery packs (CR-V3) and AA manganese (zinc-carbon) batteries
cannot be used.
(Power consumption by the camera varies depending on which functions are used.
(Power is consumed continuously during the conditions described below causing
batteries to become exhausted quickly.
• The zoom is used repeatedly.
• The shutter button is pressed halfway repeatedly in shooting mode, activating the auto focus.
• The monitor is left on for an extended period of time.
• The camera is connected to a computer or printer.
(The battery life varies greatly depending on the type of battery, manufacturer,
shooting conditions, etc. Because of this, there may be cases where the camera
turns itself off without displaying the battery level warning, or displays the battery
level warning sooner than usual.
The camera also has an optional accessory of an AC adapter that can be used as an alternative power source. It is model number E-7AU.
An AC adapter is useful for time-consuming tasks such as image downloads to
a computer or when running a slideshow for a long period of time.
To use the AC adapter with this camera, the optional multi-adapter (CB-MA1) is
necessary. Do not use any other AC adapter with this camera.
• Do not remove or load the battery or connect or disconnect the AC adapter or
multi-adapter while the camera is on or the camera is connected to the other
equipment. Doing so could affect the camera’s internal settings or functions.
• The AC adapter can be used within the range of AC 100 V to AC 240 V (50/60
Hz). When using the shape of abroad, you may need a plug adapter to convert
the plug to match the AC wall outlet. For details, ask at your local electrical shop
or travel agent.
• Do not use travel voltage converters as they could damage the AC adapter.
Ouch! You can't use an AC adapter with any battery-operated equipment you choose to just because the plug fits physically. The A70 requires 5-6 volts, and a Pavilion adapter typically puts out 18 volts. You most probably blew out your Canon's power supply within a few seconds, unless it's fused somehow. Next stop: tech support/repair shop/camera cemetery. Sorry.
You will definitely want an AC adapter for your camera. You won't want to be tethered to an electrical cord while taking pictures, but when it comes time to edit the pictures stored on your memory card(s) or to download your photos onto a computer, you'll find the job much easier if you're running the camera via an AC adapter. Without the continuous power of an adapter, you'll burn through your batteries.
The AC Adapter that is used with the S-HD-100 is the A-511 AC Adapter part number 200370,and can be purchased from the Olympus Emporium at http://www.olympusamerica.com/store, or by calling 1(800) 201-7766.
Yes. The power supplies and battery chargers supplied with all Powershot Digital Cameras are designed to work on input voltages from 100-240 volts (50/60 Hz). The only item that you may need is a plug adapter that allows you to plug the U.S. type power supply or battery charger into the foreign type wall outlet. Plug adapters should be easily available at a local electronics store.
