    Better still, buy two batteries….then you always have a fully charged one as a spare to swap in, while the other goes in the charger. ;-)

    Better still, the camera should charge the battery in-camera.

    That would be nice. However I’m afraid that might add an ounce or two to the camera, and weight and size are really important for such devices. Is there an electrical engineeer in the house?
