Extra power source for your battery
When hiking through a wilderness with a camera in your hand, you have a tiny chance of coming across a power socket to recharge your depleted battery. What can you do not to miss an opportunity to capture wonderful views and unique experiences? Make sure you have an extra camera battery!
Buying an extra camera battery is the first step you need to make to be prepared for a power shortage. You can replace your battery at any time if you make provisions in advance. Camera batteries are small and lightweight, so you won’t notice any difference if you throw in one or two into your backpack. You will appreciate this idea when your camera battery is suddenly dead.
In the long run, you have to make sure you have the opportunity to recharge the batteries, too. This means you need a high quality charger. You can use one that comes with the camera. If you don’t have one, explore the models available in our online store and find one to go with your device.
A good idea is a traditional power bank. You will easily connect your default charger to it at any time. You can safely place all of this equipment in your backpack and enjoy the unrestricted freedom.
What to look out for when choosing a camera battery?
Camera batteries may differ in multiple parameters, because they are designed for specific camera models. There’s no such thing as a universal battery. Specific products may come in different shapes and sizes. When looking for a replacement battery for your camera, pick one that was designed specifically for your camera model.
If you choose a proper battery for your camera model, you won’t have to worry about any other parameters. They should be in line with the requirements of your device. The first and most important element that has to be consistent is the battery capacity. It should not differ from the default battery by more than 10%. Otherwise the battery might leak when inserted into the device.
You should also check the voltage of the replacement battery. If it’s by up to 0.2 V more or less than the original battery, then such a difference won’t be noticeable.
What to remember when buying a camera charger?
An extra battery may not be aligned with the original charger, so it’s good to choose a charger that works with both default and replacement batteries. Such a device may prove much more efficient and convenient than the default charger. Some models come with an LSD screen that shows the battery level.
Among the available chargers you will also find variants with inbuilt power banks. If a model of your choice does not have one, you can always buy a separate power bank – in our online store you can choose from a wide range of such devices.
