    Not that I know of, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed as this is a real need for me as well.

    I sometimes document ethnography out in the boonies for weeks at a time with no reliable access to mains power, but often with access to a solar panel or SUV.

    My guess is that it will just take a little while for 3rd party vendors to see the market and adapt to it.

    Get a DC to AC inverter and use the OEM charger.

    That's what I've done in the past, but it adds weight and another mission-critical component to break/need fuses/overheat/etc. I really want a 12V native charger to remove those inefficiencies.
