There aren't any AC-1s or copies on Fleebay (that I could find). So looks like the only option is to contact Olympus (or maybe Ian will know) and see if the AC-1 will charge in-situ and then fork out some serious dosh

Thank you for your reply, most kind. This was`nt exactly what I was looking for, however if it`s the only option then I will buy one, it is one very expensive power supply though.
