That is the USB cable and that is fine, what Laurence is referring to is the cord from the adapter to the power source.
Make sure it is rated for 240 volts, if not any electronics retailer will have the correct cord. They are generic computer type power cords.

answer 3
The EH-62A AC adapter which is the correct AC adapter for the COOLPIX P100 is able to auto switch from 100v to 240V 50hz/60hz. However, it important that you check the Voltage rating on the power cord as it may not be rated for 240V power supply and in that case you will need to purchase a new power cord that is rated for 240V for the EH-62A AC adapter.
Failure to observe this precaution could damage the product or cause overheating or fire.

Question

Can i plug the cable into another wall charger that takes USB cords?

Hi, I need to charge my s8200 while taking long videos. I don't want to buy something I don't need and notice that the cable for it has a USB end that fits into the little charging cube I use to charge my iphone and other Apple products. Could I just plug the cable that came with my camera into this wall charger and safely power my camera and charge the battery?

THanks,
K.

The correct AC adapter for the S8200 is the EH-62F. You can find more info on the EH-62F here: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Pr...

The use of Non-Nikon Electronic Accessories could damage your camera and void your warranty.

No you cannot do it that way, it is a special adapter that plugs into the battery chamber. It is Nikon EH-62F, it costs around $25.00.

Question

What is the voltage rating for this charger?

Is this charger useable from 100-240v or just the U.S. 100-120? If it is only up to 120, is there a European version I can get? (I'm seriously considering the Coolpix P500, which comes with this charger, but I travel often to Europe and need a camera with a battery I can charge there too).

Yes, all Nikon Coolpix cameras have an auto switching (from 100v to 240V 50hz/60hz) battery charger that will work in most countries around the world. AC adapters have similar characteristics. Always check the specification plate on your other battery chargers or AC adapters as third party products may not support dual voltage systems. We do not suggest the use of third party battery chargers and AC adapters with Nikon equipment.

Note that the power cord included with some Nikon chargers or AC adapter is designed for 110 volt use only. A power cord suitable for the local power system should be obtained on arrival, most airport shops and computer suppliers will carry these items which are typically used for laptop computer power supply connections. Be sure that the new cord you buy fits the Nikon adapter you wish to use it with and that it is rated for the voltage in your new location. While not recommended, a simple plug adapter may be used, but caution should be taken as the cord Nikon supplies is not rated for the higher voltage and may heat or fail.

Some newer Coolpix have included an AC Adapter, for plugging directly into a wall outlet without the use of a power cord. As with previous chargers, the correct adapter must be acquired for the country traveled to, and fitted to the Nikon AC adapter to allow proper AC connection to the wall outlet.

Question

Will this charger work in the UK with an adapter or will I need a transformer as well?

I bought a camera with this adapter while in the US but have since moved home. I was told I may need to purchase a transformer as the voltages are different and I'd risk damaging the battery but I have also been told I'd just need an adapter.

If the light is flickering (very fast) it may be that the ambient temperature is not suited for charging or the USB cable is not properly connected, or there is a problem with the battery. Disconnect the USB cable or unplug the Charging AC adapter and correctly connect it again, or try a back up battery.

What is the "output" of the EH-69P Charging AC Adapter

Laptop has worked great for charging the camera but I'm going on an extended trip and will need to use a plug in adapter, which did not come with the camera. I have a couple already, one from an I-Pad, and one for a cell phone, both will be with me on the trip. The I-Pad has +5v/2amp output, and the cellphone has 5v/7amp output; both have the required USB female plug-in. Will either one of these units work without damaging the camera?

This product is not working with British plug types, is there an alternative product that will work in GB

The charger is loose fitting into the adapter socket and will not allow the camera to charge. This can only be done using the cable directly into the computer and I do not take my computer on holiday with me!
I am therefore looking for an alternative plug which will be more reliable to use.
