Charging Leica Q batteries on the road

Recommended Posts

I have a question about charging Leica Q/CL batteries while on the road.

Is there a way to hook up the BC-DC12 charger on the usb - out port in my car or the usb - out on a power bank?

I know there are mobile chargers who can operate on the cars cigarette lighter, but that is not what I am looking for.

Thanks in advance.

I also use the Nitecore charger.  I have one for my Q and another for my M.

+1. I use the same Nitecore charger especially when I’m traveling. Works perfectly although not particularly fast. That keeps the battery temp down which helps the batteries last longer.

I got a better solution https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Akku-Ladegerät-für-Leica-BP-DC12-passend-für-Leica-Q-V-Lux-4-VLux-Leica-CL/372343132492?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Battery is not as strong as the official one, but can't beat this price.

I ditched the plug to use one from Apple's computer plug. It makes a tiny charger.
Car plug is great.

Thanks, but your solution is another one but not a better one for me. The Nitcore can be powered by usb using a power bank. Yours cannot.

As I said in my OP I was not looking for charging via the usual cigarette lighter plug.

Thanks though for the option, it might be helpful for others.
