Anyone have a source for a Scoopic battery charger?

I just picked up a Canon scoopic from a guy on the list.
Good condition, grey handle one, with original case and batteries.
"US GOVT" carved in the the handle.
It has no charger for the batteries.
I looked a lil online and didn't find just the charger, lots of re'celling services.
Looks ready to shoot, no corrosion, or lens fungus.
I already have an arri s and a couple of bolexes.
I don't know if I really need a scoopic laying around too.
I may sell it, but I doubt I'll get a decent price without shooting a test roll and check it running.
any one have a source for charger?

I have a related question, so pardon for resurrecting the thread. I did get a charger with the camera I bought on e-bay, and that is the most likely source to try and find one I would think.
I have a Scoopic with the Original style battery, which was recelled previously. It seems that folks are recelling these with NI-MH batteries, and sure enough the vendors in China have cells the perfect size..
My concern is the charger. The unit that did come with the camera Lights up when Plugged in, but I only find a couple of volts on the battery terminals. Perhaps this is normal without the battery connected? IS there a schematic diagram available for the charger?
Does the charger have to be modified to use the NIMH cells.
