From the submitter:
I was traveling in China for 2 weeks, and had brought a spare camera battery, but no charger. Borrowed a friend's charger, found some wire, and voila.
Troll science at its finest.
Plug it in, plug it in, plug it in, plug it in, plug it in, plug it in...
Meatpuppet submitted with comment: Out of state and forgot the camera charger. One cell phone charger, two paper clips, two pieces of a stir straw and we are in business!
