So the charger to the wireless headset has gone missing, and when electronics go missing there's usually two things you can do.
1) cry heavily into your pillow or beat up the next punk kid you see
2) buy a replacement
I, however, clever genius that I am, discovered that a Nokia phone charger is a perfect replacement for the headset charger.
The catch is that you have to have a Nokia phone with appropriately sized charger. You can also get those handy-dandy multiple car charger thingies for your phone, which cost about $10. (It's a set of 6 or 7 different sizes that plug into a USB which then plugs into your cigarette lighter).
Apparently you can also buy just the original charger for $5 here but when you live in australia, you have to add a 50% to 200% price increase on everything (nicorette gum and condoms excluded), and then shipping costs on top of that. So digging around in your parent's old electronic drawer/box/storage facility doesn't sound so bad considering.
