As the tourist season draws to a close hopefully it will mean an end to witless visitors asking for battery chargers.
Many cameras now use a square Li-ion rechargeable battery but sadly this means taking a battery charger on holiday. A step too far it seems for many hapless holidaymakers.
Everyday they crowd into our store asking if we have a charger for their device. It is rare that we have the correct one in stock.
The next reaction is fury, however when we do have the required charger often the potential customer balks at the request for £35 - it can't be that much they argue.
Sometimes then they ask us to charge their battery f.o.c. while they go away for a coffee.
