Can a Panasonic Lumix Dmc-FZ50 take a charger tht is 8.5Vs? on the side it says DC in 8.4Vs. will it wreck it?

Lithium batteries are great, small size and large capacity, they have one achilles heel they must never be overcharged (they go bang). Chargers for lithium batteries are battery type specific. There is often a charge management chip in the battery (which is why they often have 3 contacts) the charger need to interact with this.

Take the battery out of the camera and there will be a battery type number, put this number plus the word ‘charger’ into eBay or Google and you’ll get a list.
