How to Choose Emergency Canon battery Chargers
Cameras are a must in modern life. Having a discharged phone can be inconvenient, or even downright dangerous if an emergency arises. Chargers or boosters mean never running out of power.
LI-ION Battery-Powered Chargers
12 Volt Car Lighter Canon Camera chargers
Cars have electrical power to spare. 12 volt adapters that plug into the car’s cigarette lighter socket, make a lot of sense for drivers. They can make it a habit to plug their phone in whenever they are in the car, and having a fully charged battery when they reach their destination.
These are the most convenient and portable. Unfortunately, they can be underpowered. They are best for occasional emergency use, for a few minutes of urgent talk-time, not to fully recharge the phone on a daily basis.
Some chargers run on one or two LI-ION batteries. Two-LI-ION chargers are available from major battery brands
Needs to be recharged. Not possible to continuously replenish power by buying new disposable batteries.
Not suitable for standby emergency use, packed in a bag for a few years. Batteries will self-discharge after a few months.
The main concern is having a cable that is long enough for the phone to be placed in a convenient location.
The Best Canon Camera chargers
USB Canon Camera chargers
Like car chargers, these are just adapters with no power supply. They need to be plugged into a computer’s USB port for power. Some notebook computers will charge even in standby or sleep mode.
Hand crank chargers for Camera are usually emergency LED hand crank flashlights or radios, with a Canon Camera chargers port.
Many chargers are “universal”, being able to charge phones from different manufacturers. The main problem with chargers is getting the right connection tip for the phone. This should be tested in the shop before purchase.
Canon battery chargers are light and cheap with many costing only a few dollars. For something as useful and potentially life-saving as a Canon battery, it makes sense to keep a few different chargers handy:
A 12 volt charger in the car.
A USB charger next to the office PC.
An LI-ION charger in the purse, briefcase or backpack.
A solar or hand-crank charger in the emergency survival bag.
Getting into the habit of charging the Camera a few times a day, whenever there is an opportunity, will help to ward off the flat battery blues. Keeping the phone in the purse/briefcase/backpack when charging, makes it almost impossible to accidentally leave the phone behind.

The Power Outside – External Laptop Battery Charger – Emergency Charger
Anyone who has ever owned a laptop computer knows that it can sometimes take quite a long time for a laptop to charge the battery. One of the ways around this problem is to get your hands on an external laptop battery charger, which can really help to speed up the process, and can be used to charge a second to battery, always a good idea when you are a heavy user of the computer. This article will look at a few considerations that need to be borne in mind when buying this extremely useful laptop accessory.
The first thing to remember is that choosing a charger needs to be done with great care, since at the very least you may end up with a charger which does not charge your battery properly, or could even cause damage to the battery itself, and you could be left with no power at all for your laptop. In the least worst case you could end up with a battery that is only partially charged, which means your notebook might run out of power after just an hour or so of operation, which could cause you a lot of trouble if it happens in an opportune moment.
In the worst case scenario you could end up with a battery charger causing a lot of damage to the battery itself, which means you have to then go out and buy a completely new battery pack, which of course can be very expensive.
One of the most common mistakes is to buy a charger which is not a suitable for the type of battery itself, usually a charger that is too small to take the battery. There are some types which can charge different sizes, but these are usually only supplied by manufacturers to charge the various sizes of battery for their complete laptop range. They are not usually available for different models. It is usually better to find a universal type of charger, possibly with a docking system.
An external battery charger can be a real boon, but, as you can see, you really do need to take a lot of care when you’re choosing one because the wrong choice could leave you with practically no battery at all.
