Charge 7.2v FZ200 battery with external battery pack???
I have a FZ200 with a couple of batteries and two charging units. One of them (the non-OEM) has a pin type connector for charging with a car charger.
We are going to the Amazon in Peru and it appears that electrical power will be quite limited - perhaps only a couple of hours a day. I fear not being able to charge my camera batteries and went looking for an external battery pack that could do this.
Anker makes a 14400mah and a 20000 mah external battery pack.
The issue is that it charges using 9v. Anker cannot/will not tell me whether this is a problem since my camera battery is 7.2v.
They recommended contacting Panasonic. (I love Apple and absolutely dread trying to get help from any other company). Panasonic's standard line is: it is not recommended. That said, I really don't think that the person I was talking to had ANY idea of what she was talking about since she also said that the 14400 mah was also a problem. I am reasonable certain this is not an issue, but I could be wrong.
has anybody tried this? if so, what equipment did you use? is the 9v a problem when charging a 7.2v battery? I welcome all thoughts, suggestions and recommendations. Yes I know I could buy a bunch of batteries...but they are so expensive and this charger is $60.
