Hi ppl how is everyone. To get to the point im looking to options when it comes to portable photo storage on my upcoming trip to nepal. the main problem is that laptops need mains power to recharge and the same is true for all the photo wallets i have seen, so my main question to all you out there is apart from carrying several (or seventy, LOL)cards does any have a sugesstion. im spending 26 days in 'wilderness' so i need something that runs on AA or AAA batteries as i see it?

Theire are several special photostorage tools on the market.

I personaly take my laptop. I use an OLD toshiba Libretto laptop (with a bigger disk in it of course), it's small (like a vhs tape) and the batterij last me long enough for most of my trips.

About the IPOD option i would say keep away from that sollution. The cable that they made for this transfer (made by belkin) works BUT it's realy slow and eats batteries.

Maybe try to post a simular message at the digital photo website i am sure that they can give you some more options.

Hey, this is what I Plan on buying for my next trip:

It doesn't run on AA batteries though, internal Li-ion battery.

I am not sure what it is called, or who made by, but when I was in alaska I saw a roll up solar panel with hookups for most electronic gear. Not sure how well it works, but something for you to ponder on
