Is there an adaptor or a new power cord that I can purchase for my LC-E8E charger so that I can power it from a USB plug? I want to do this so that I can recharge my batteries with an Anker portable power source on extended backpacking and camping trips.

The LC-E8E charger needs 100-240 Volts AC power to operate. It won't be possible to adapt it to use 5 Volt USB power.
You need to buy a USB charger that will charge your LP-E8 batteries. They are available on eBay and elsewhere.

Thanks. I figured that was my only option. I had a Pearstone charger that had a USB plug that bit the dust, what I feel was pretty prematurely. That thing really spoiled me because I could charge in in my car or off my computer. I see B&H has dropped Pearstone in favor of another brand. I"ll have to check them out.
