    My Panasonic battery charger Model DE-A59B has to be used with a travel adapter having uk's 13a 3pin out.
    The adapter's inputs have four 'holes' appearing to take various plugs. The charger has flip-up plug of two flat 'pins', and plugs into the adapter. For me to use the charger where mains sockets are not our 13a 3pin, I would need a different adapter. Or does anyone know if these two flat pins fit another European mains socket ? That is without the adapter. Searched the internet and got nowhere with the problem. Or where to buy an adapter taking the chargers pins and for use in another country ? Geri.

    Two flat pins about half an inch apart is a standard US plug. (Standard European is two round pins, and Aus/NZ two flat pins at an angle).

    The easiest solution may be a travel adapter which allows a UK plug to be used in a different socket, keeping the charger and existing adapter together. These are widely available.

    Thanks for helpful remarks, Sabreur. I've not been abroad with a digital camera. As you say an adapter a good solution. The charger is fine, two pins fold down and it's compact. But then has to have an adapter...and one for that ! Geri.

    I don't know what else you might be taking, but the same adapter will work for your mobile charger, laptop, hairdryer etc.
