The LC-E6E shows as having a detachable cord instead of built-in prongs. This question is for whoever actually as one ... is the connection between charger and cord a standard IEC type connection like maybe one of these:

That would be for the LP-E6 ... which is used by 60D, 7D, and 5DmkII.

It's the RoW charger, not the one for the Americas. Given the variety of 200-240V connectors in use, it's the logical choice for that environment. AFAIK it is a standard power connector (C7?). Can't see Canon wanting to have to source different custom power cables for the different markets.

So it is different from the LC-E6 that comes with the 7D, 5DII, etc...

Well, it's the same guts, just takes a cord where the American version has fold-away blades to plug directly into the wall. I'd prefer the LC-E6E, FWIW.

That's exactly what I was thinking of it for. If it uses a standard IEC connector, I can just get one for any part of the world, and substitute a cord with a US (NEMA 1-15) plug.

The LC-E6, despite having the built-in flip-out US plug, is rated for the full 100-240 volt range of voltages seen all over the world. But one with a cord would be more convenient for me in many cases. Based on some other images I found elsewhere since I first posted this thread, it does appear to be using a IEC C8 inlet. The cord for most netbook/laptop double-cord power supplies would work. And if the US model works on 100-240, I don't see why the European/Asian model would be any different (e.g. like you say, same guts).

http://en.wikipedia.or​g …ctor#C7_and_C8_​connectors (external link)

Now I need to find where I can order one with a CEE 7/16, 7/4, or 7/7.

Oh, BTW, we do have 240 volts in the USA, too. I have a couple dozen computers connected to 240 volts.

They are $15 shipped on ebay right now. I'm ordering one. For that price, It will be nice to charge 2 batteries at once.
