Wanted, Olympus Tough charger cable

Post by Nep »

Maybe you're Olympus Tough Camera has died but you still have the cable? I've lost mine and am not confident the ones for £3 on ebay will actually do the job. So thought it worth asking here first.

It's nothing special, when I need to charge mine I just grab one of several that size (can't remember the exact name) I have hanging around, ie headtorch, earphone charger etc

Thanks Chris, We've tried that with all the cables in the house and no luck! We were sure it was the same as my old mobile phone. But it is quite an old model and no luck so far.

Ah - I wasn't aware but I just looked it up. Apparently from the TG-5 onwards they changed the camera connector to a bog-standard micro-USB. Not before time! The earlier ones (like my TG-4) have a proprietary Olympus version of the USB connector at the camera end that you won't find on anything else.

Having lost mine, bought a replacement and then found it again I have a spare but I'm not parting with it I'm afraid.

Thanks Sean, Thanks very much for your research. I've just oredered one from ebay that says it's good for the TG-4. £7.89. Fingers crossed. I bet you anything I'll find the old one soon. I suspect my husband has carried it off to his den from which nothing ever returns!

You could also buy a battery charger and take the ebattery out to charge.

I've got several random cheap ones for my TG-4, they all work fine.
