      if you don’t have a battery in your camera, then there is nothing the charger could charge! Whether or not it provides power to your camere so that it can run is a different question, but one you can easily answer yourself by just trying. Let us know how it works out!

      I got a knockoff battery and charger on eBay about a year ago, when my Dad sent me a Lumix left in his cab by Irish tourists [before we could get that camera here in the States]. Cost about $22, including shipping. (Lost the charger in a recent move, and had your USB question too, now answered.)  Note: my camera has a 5.3v DC in, adjacent to an AV out port under a door on the side. Looks like the male plug would be novel, not something likely kept on hand.  Could be if you had this cable, vs. the battery charger, you could run the camera w/o a battery. But it’d be awkward.

    did any of the solutions suggested above work for you? Is there an eBay in Pakistan? Please let us know how you solved the issue!

    You can get a universal charger which will charge any device with a usb port or adapter. Again, have a look on ebay/amazon etc.

    It will vary based on what model of camera you own. I would suggest going on to ebay and finding the correct charger from a seller who is willing to ship internationally. Here’s an example:

    FYI: eBay serves pritnear everywhere; the key is buyers’ and sellers’ being hip to state security type shipping restrictions and tariffs. This makes for a potentially rich collection of international postage and register-stamps [China & Palau offer awesome postage graphics]. US sellers can ship to Pakistan, no problem. UK, too.
