How do I keep my camera battery continuously charged without having to seek out a local power plug adapter for the UK plug the charger has!? I have a Canon EOS30D Digital SLR. Any thoughts?

I have heard of Canon releasing battery packs for EOS cameras that are powered by AA batteries but I cant find them for my model camera anywhere

The new battery grips for the digital slr's have a AA cartridge. But for the older models i think it's not availible so people with a 30D, 60D or even 10D just need to take a converter plug when they go on a holiday.

You charger would be 100-240volts (at least that's what i expect) so only a plug converter would do the trick and you can get those really cheap. Bought my set (4 different plugs) for 3.5 euro.

It's gonna sound crazy, but I just returned from a 2 week trip to Japan and China with my Canon 20D and shot 400 images with one battery, no charging. I just turned the camera off after each picture and limited my viewing in the lcd.

check out some images on my site.

Not crazy at all.

I normally get like between 600 and 700 photo's out of my battery (use a 10D) but i don't expect this from a 30D i think canon improved the battery use a lot with the "newer models"

Have fun,
