Hi Everyone,

After a few months of looking for a small travel camera (after my daughter somehow ended up with my Canon G15 :confused:) I picked up a GM1. So far I'm really happy with it except for one thing that most people probably don't even think about...the size of the battery charger. It's essentially the same size as the camera!

This camera is specifically for me to use on mountain biking trips and off-pavement motorcycle trips in addition to normal travel. Packing space is critical and all my equipment is bought with an eye toward minimizing weight and pack space. The battery of the GM1 doesn't really last very long so just taking a couple charge batteries on a week-long trip won't work. Has anyone found any third-party batteries that have smaller chargers? Any other ideas about how to get around this?

Evan

P.S. Great forum. I've been lurking for a while...

I honestly can't imagine one being any significant amount smaller. I wonder if it can charge in camera through the USB port?
