Yeah, I checked out Canons website but didn't really see anything. I really don't trust after market gadgets so I might research power inverters and see if that's a viable power source for 120V power. Thanks for the input.

 

 

I looked at B&H and Adorama and didn't see anything compatible with my battery. At least with an inverter I can hook up a coffee pot.

 


B&H sells a universal Manfotto charger that can charge multiple battery types and can use a 12v source to charge.

You may be surprised at how much current the inverter draws to power your coffee pot, 600 to 1,000 watts is common power consumption for a coffee pot when operating.  Inverters aren't 100% efficient so your car battery will have a very short life if you don't keep the engine at fast idle to charge it.

 

B&H has the Watson C-1546 in stock for 19.95, charges LP-E17 batteries from 12 or 24 VDC and 100-240VAC.  It appears identical to the model C-1508 I use for the camcorder BP-800 series batteries except for the battery connector itself.

I was kidding about the coffe pot. I prefer taking only bare essentials.

Re: LP E17 charging options

Thanks for all the suggestions. I overlooked a lot of stuff not knowing what I was looking at. After looking at all the options I think I'm going to go with an inverter for the versatility over just being a charger. Thanks again to all.
