Default canon s20 ac adapter

As I no longer have the original charger, and the replacement charger
has no AC socket, can anyone tell me what I need to run this camera
from a UK mains socket. I have the lead from the camera but no 6.5v
1.5a source.
Thanks for any advice.

The Canon S20 has no power connector that I'm aware of. In my
case, the camera only came with a disposable lithium battery, and I
had to buy Canon's charger kit separately (DK-100). In addition to
the charger (CA-PS-100/100E) it included a DC Coupler (DR-100A)
which had a small, odd, proprietary DC terminal on the end of its
cord that plugged into the charger. The other end of the cord had a
blob similar in size and shape to the NB-5H battery packs normally
used with the S20. I assume that this is the "lead" that you have.

If your lead from the camera has the battery-like thing on the end
(the DR-100A coupler) but the replacement charger has no small
socket for the other end of the cable (DC, not AC), I suppose you
could cut the DC terminal off and mate the end of the cable to a
small transformer or "wall wart" capable of supplying between 1.0
and 1.5 amps. at a voltage anywhere from 5.5 to 6.5 volts, since it
would replace the NB-5H battery pack that operates over a range of
from 6 volts down to probably about 5.3 volts. You could probably
get by with a transformer supplying even less than 1 amp if you
don't intend to use the camera's flash at the same time.

Many thanks. Yes, I have the DR-100A so I'll look around for a suitable
transformer. Are there other devices that run on a similar voltage that
might be easier to track down?
