Has anyone ever seen a gadget that you could use to charge camera batteries in the car?
There are standard outlet adapters for the cigarette port in the car.
Example: Amazon.com: DBTech 175 Watt Portable Micro Power Inverter With USB Port - 12v AC to 110v DC Car Plug Converter For Your Ipod, iPad, iPhone, Tablet, PSP, DVD Players Laptops Netbooks And cellphones: Electronics
Yes. It's called a battery charger. All li-ion chargers are the same. Only the physical connection is different. I travel with one of those clippy generic chargers I got for $1 that I use to charge all my cameras/phones. You can get a generic battery charger that will work specifically with your camera battery for about $3-$6. Many of these will come with a 12 volt plug for your car.
I think you may be looking for an "Inverter". They are available nearly everywhere from Walmart to Auto Part Stores and the internet. I purchased mine from Costco. You can run 110 stuff via the ciggie lighter including your camera's battery charger.
And power inverters are getting seriously cheap these days too. And seriously compact. It wasn't so many years ago that you had to pay $100+ for one and it would have to be a big thing that looked like the amp on your sub if you have a system. Now you can get a tiny little 75-150W adapter and pay as little as $15 for it. There's no excuse not to have a power inverter in your car anymore.

I do have an inverter in the car. Much prefer the unipal as it can live there, rather than remembering to carry the OEM unit. Also makes a great backup if the OEM fails, which mine has.
