That's a good idea! The only problem would be: If it's the charger, I would damage my (new) replacement battery... Weekend is over anyways.
Why do you avoid amazon? Is it not that good in the states? Here (Germany) they have in my humble experience by FAR the best service. Wish we had B&H over here, though. Bought some stuff there on vacation - amazing.
Sorry, didn't realize you were in Germany. Hard to know with the internet.
I don't think the battery charger would damage the battery. More likely, it just wouldn't charge it. I was just trying to help diagnose the problem. It's probably a battery or charger issue, since from what you've said, it doesn't sound like the battery is getting charged at all. But, I wanted to rule out a camera problem.
As for Amazon, my bias is just based on the company's policies. They have built their business model on tax avoidance, avoiding making any concrete investment in facilities and minimizing the number of persons they employ. I prefer to spend my dollars with stores that actually pay taxes and employ people. So, it's a personal/political decision, having nothing to do with service or quality of product. And, I'm not pure, there are times when I buy from them if I can't get the product or competitive price elsewhere.
Good luck on the 6D. So disappointing to have it there and be unable to use it. But, keep in mind that in a week or so, everything should be resolved and you'll be happily taking pictures.
