    I feel a bit silly posting such an ignorant question, but this one really has
    me going. I tried Google searches on this camera, but didn't turn up the
    solution. Maybe someone experienced with these old cameras can shed some light.

    I found a nice looking Olympus Quick Flash AFL at the thrift shop last week for
    only $2. After fiddling with if for 15 minutes I still couldn't figure out how
    to put the batteries in, so of course I bought it. I love a good puzzle.

    It turns out to have rechargable batteries permanently wired in, hence no need
    for a battery compartment door. But now the puzzle is that there doesn't seem
    to be any place to attach a recharger to the camera. No electrical connector of
    any sort that I can find.

    How do they do it? Where do I connect the recharger?

    Cheers to all !

    The "permanently" built-in battery is a lithium cell.
    These are not rechargeable.

    They were formerly replaced by Olympus service facilities.
    I'm sure they have discontinued service by now,
    but they might tell you who will service them.

    If you are handy with a soldering iron
    you may be able to replace it yourself,
    provided the battery is still available...

    Excelsior, you fatheads!
