Re: Battery charging 'in the field'

If size is a concern, the Wasabi units are about as small as possible, accept 110-240 volts and come with a "European" plug.
I was "off the grid" for two weeks and used a folding solar panel every day while backpacking. Panel was about the size of a magazine, folded, for charging the same batteries the em-10 uses. Charging took about four hours, more or less the same as an auto charger (also included). 3000 photos, three batteries. Only thing I'd do differently is bring a second charging unit as a backup.
