Dummy Battery/External USB Pack to Power Nex 6 For Backcountry Timelapse?
1

Anyone have a setup that works for the NEX 6 via a dummy battery to USB and a USB power pack? I have found some that are basically wall chargers to plug into an outlet and home and have unlimited power, but I need something that will work in the backcountry while hiking. I usually carry a 10000mAh USB battery pack, but sadly the NEX 6 will not charge over it's USB and stay on at the same time (a horrendous design oversight, IMO).

Thoughts? There seems to be some off brand stuff out there but a known quantity that someone has working would be helpful. Would hate to smoke my camera with a bad part.

Thanks
