Rebel T6

Hey guys! I'm looking for an AC car inverter that will charge the batter for my T6 (LC-e10) and need to know how many watts I need. I have looked EVERYWHERE and cannot find how many watts the battery/charger pull. Please help me! Thanks so much!

I also have a Rebel T6 and I simply purchased an extra battery for it from B&H. I find that the Canon batteries seem to last a long time on a single charge. They are expensive at $49.95 but I won't buy knock-offs. Have  you considered just buying a spare battery or two?

The presumption would be that the OP is going to be away from a stationary AC power source for an extended period. Carrying one or two extra batteries may not be a sufficient response to that situation.

Re: Rebel T6

Robert is correct, I will be on a 2 month road trip without access to electricity for lengths of time. Buying an extra battery, or 3, wouldn't really be the best option. Thanks!

Re: Rebel T6

Look on the back of the unit. Here is an example from another charger:

If you use 110 V this one requires (.085 * 100) or 8.5 W for 220 it is .05*240 or 12 W.

IMG_5920.JPGThank you! This one has a couple sets of specs on the back. Based on your calculation, it sounds like I can get the 150 watt inverter and be a-ok. Thanks again!

Re: Rebel T6

The 12 - 17VA is the one you want. That is the number of watts (VA = volts * Amps = Watts)

 

150 W would be more than enough headroom!

Re: Rebel T6

Hello, 

 

So my Canon T6 connects to my computer fine to like transfer pictures in all but for remote viewing for recording and such it will not connect. I have tried many times with shutting off the wifi and turning the camera off and on but nothing seems to work. I was wondering if it is that I have the T6 and not the T6i or something else.

 

Thanks so much!

You really should start your own thread, instead of hijacking someone else’s thread, with a different issue, no less.

You could use the EOS Utility for remote shooting with the T6.  Make sure Live View shooting is enabled in the camera.
