charging battery while camping
1 month ago

I'm taking a trip this summer and will be camping for over a week. It just occurred to me that this will make it difficult for me to charge my E-M1's batteries. I have a car charger for my phone, and we're camping in national park camp grounds so our SUV will be parked near the tent. But what about the camera's batteries?

I have two batteries for the E-M1 now. I'll take my LX7 as well. I'm about to place an order for a third battery.

Is there are way to plug the camera's battery charger into the car's power source? The SUV has both a conventional cigarette-lighter power source and also a USB port. I've never done it, but I'm guessing I could plug the E-M1 into the USB port and charge the battery right in the camera. Is that right? Is there a better way to deal with this issue?

Will
