As they just aren’t available, I’ve taken my charger to a workshop locally. The engineer is by no means certain that the pins won’t snap when he tries to straighten them. I’m obviously crossing my fingers. Thanks to Marky P for his contact details.
Also ive got in touch with Imperial College, London, via a friend that works there, to see if they can possibly engineer a replacement / repair. Let’s face it, it MUST be possible – it’s just finding someone to do it, with the necessary tools and invention, and the will to help me. Alejandro in America can’t help me, he says they just aren’t available, and if I’m in luck could he have 5 copies for himself !
Lets see what happens then.
