UK Users - Charging up in the US?
I've never been to the US before and I'm going next month to LA so I need a bit of advice on what seems like a bit of a dumb question. How do you guys charge up your batteries whilst our are over there? Obviously need an adapter plug for the charging units, but do you need anything else like a power converter?

If your charger is rated 110-240, you're good to go.
Most recent chargers, especially for Canon cameras and including 7-Day shop items, are clearly marked 100-240V AC 50/60hz. In which case all you need is the adapter.
Canon ones are universal

You will need an adapter, because we use those dinky 2-pronged plugs here. Of course, at 110 volts, we don't need the tank-like things you Brits and many other countries with 220 volts use. And as the others said, the charger will work here and there.
i could be wrong but the plug that fits into the charger seems pretty standard. if the charger is the same here and abroad, then you could probably find some $10 radio that uses the same plug. ive done this before for other items, and it worked fine. the radio'd likely be easier to find than the plug on it's own, and likely cost the same price.
