    Default Solar charger rec pls.

    I am being dragged across the very scary bits if scotland in the summer on a ' holiday ' . I just have to keep a v diary of this so called fun - the film will be sooo funny.

    Has anyone got or can rec a solar charger that works ok. I have googled this but as is so often the case there is too much choice and now i am confused.

    Mark, A solar charger in Scotland now there's a thought, friends were there in Summer last year and they got rain hail sleet and wind, nearly lost the door of there Camper Van and that was on the good days, have you thought of a wind up torch some have out lets for charging Cell Phone batteries, don't know if any would match your camera battery voltage but might be worth looking into.

    Good luck and boy are you going to need it.

    Oh - never thought of that - doh.
    Will look for a wind up thing - or maybe I will just take a few batts and be careful how i use them.

    find out what volages your camera battery outputs and maybe you could make something.

    do you have a volt meter? (Palm Size Digital LCD Multimeter Voltmeter Ammeter Ohmmeter,LCD Multimeter Voltmeter)

    it's probable written on your charger. also i found this Variable Voltage Charger Panel > Maplin, very cool
