Battery questions

hello all!

I have been shooting travel documentaries using my sweet little point and shoot camera a1200 canon for some time now.

Now i am getting offers from small colleges to shoot some videos and i am looking to buy a new camera.

I don't want to lug a full DSLR around esp when i have an option of smaller good cameras like s100 canon, sony rx100 etc.


1. how to get additional power for these cameras? (shooting outdoor?) is getting additional batteries only way to go?

2. Why have manufacturers stopped making cameras that use AAA batteries? Frankly they are so much better rather than expensive and less Mah power Li-ion ones. AAA are easily available etc?

3. Any other ideas on how u power your camera when you re out? Iwould prefer readymade products and not DIY stuff, cause i don't know anything abt electricity.

4. USB charging options? These days i notice many power banks available that allow to charge mobile phones. Are there any digital cameras that can be plugged into USB for additional power?

Appreciate your help on this!
