One of the biggest challenges of filming in the backcountry is charging camera batteries. These aren’t AA batteries, these things are huge and take hours to charge. And as we all know there are no outlets in the mountains. Until now….
Field producer Marcus Hockett explains the solar charging solution that he has found to work best for charging these beasts of batteries. Obviously, you can use this solar charging for anything that has AC or DC power.
