Re: USB power source to use in the field

Pareshk. Are you just considering charging while you are out and about during the day or is it a situation where you won't be able to recharge your batteries when you return home? I faced this potential problem when trekking and I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to have power available for recharging every evening so I bought an Anker PowerCore 13000 Power Bank - Compact 13000mAh 2-Port

Actually I didn't need to use it for charging the batteries from my RX10 but it would have done so if necessary. It would also be useful for charging mobile phones and tablets.

It will of course be quite possible to carry a power bank with you during the day but it might be a bit clunky to have attached to your camera if this became necessary. Personally, I would carry additional spare batteries, and charge them up in the evening with something like this:-

I found a useful little plastic container which holds two NP-FW50 batteries snugly and securely. Sorry about the long URL but DPreview won't let me use a TinyURL link.
