I’ve 600 hundred USB-C chargers in all places; in my automotive, subsequent to my mattress, in my lavatory, within the storage, in my digicam bag. Are you aware what I by no means bear in mind to pack? The battery charger for my digicam. Sure, you may cost the battery with the digicam itself for many of Sony’s Alpha line of cameras, however no self-respecting photographer has time for that — you’re too busy capturing! Nitecore to the rescue, with its ridiculously intelligent battery with a built-in USB-C socket. Use any USB-C energy brick or battery pack to cost your digicam batteries on the go.
The batteries themselves are customary 7.2 volt, 2,250 mAh lithium-ion batteries, roughly comparable with Sony’s personal NP-FZ100 batteries. After all, these issues retail at $80 or so, and Nitecore’s different accent battery packs promote for about half that. The corporate isn’t revealing the worth tag and haven’t steered what the premium shall be for its USB-C chargeable battery packs. As a photographer who’s each forgetful and sometimes fails to plan forward, I’d gladly pay the identical worth as Sony costs for its InfoLithium battery packs, only for the comfort of charging them wherever I discover myself operating low on juice.
It’s a type of improvements the place you go “properly… rattling, why aren’t all batteries like this!?” Battery producers, when you’re studying this, you’ve got your marching orders. Put some charging circuitry in your batteries and let me cost on the go.
