How do you know that there will be no external battery charger?
EU regulations for simplified charging systems, that is why all phones now use USB, and most are micro USB, except the big round fruit of course. Cameras have followed suit. Only canon supply external chargers for all their cameras, the fuji X10 is external also. Sony CSC cameras now charge batteries internally.
