no charger for me

I'm leaving the country Saturday, and for the past two days I've been running around town looking for a replacement battery charger for my Canon SD550.

I've been to Circuit City, Best Buy, Radio Shack, and two different Wolf Camera stores, and discovered that none of them stock any battery chargers at all (only batteries). Wolf says they're back-ordered about three months. I feel like there's an unmet demand here, and if someone supplied the goods, they could make a healthy profit.

Anyway, I finally gave up and bought the charger on Amazon, but I refused to pay the $18 1-day shipping fee, so I guess I'll be rationing my camera use judiciously over the next four or five days.
