Last week I was in Santa Barbara for the first time in a few years. My camera had died, but I remembered going to this camera shop 4 years ago with a friend who was heavily into photography. I go to Samy's in Santa Ana regularly, so I trust their service. We strolled on over to see if they had any batteries or chargers that I could buy to recharge my baby. The place was busy, but we were helped promptly. They did in fact have both batteries and chargers (for a camera that they didn't even sell in their store!), but I was really hoping not to spend anything. So I took a shot and randomly asked if there was any way that they could charge my battery for me (I would have paid) and Clint said they would be happy to take it and I could pick the charged battery back up in about an hour. SO AWESOME. When I got back to pick it up, they charged me nothing and I left a very happy camper. Thanks guy, you saved my trip!
