A desktop charger for a Nokia BL-5c or BL-6c battery will do the job, at least the two non-Nokia ones I've tried. I've done it a few times. I've never let it sit on the charger until full, so I don't know if the charger can recognize full charge on the FreeRunner battery or not, but left on the charger for 15-20 minutes it will boot the FreeRunner.
The most readily-accessible source is likely to be a friend with a Nokia phone using one of those batteries - several models over the past six or eight years. (mine is a 6600) If you know anyone with a nokia phone (now or the past several years) it's worth asking them what battery it uses, if they have a desktop charger, and if you can borrow it. (or keep it - if they're not using the phone ask for the charger and battery ;) j On Tue, 30 Sep 2008 13:04:07 -0600 (MDT), "Vince M.
