Question about Olympus Camedia E-100RS Digital Camera

1 Answer

E-100 generic AC Adapter?

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?

I doubt you can use 300 mA adapter,because Oly C2100 needs 2000 mA at 6,5V. E100RS construction seems to be very similar.
