Nobody wants to run out of power when they are on location, but that doesn't mean that this pain point in photography has been cleared up. 

Tether Tools, best known for its cabling and mounting solutions, knows this and has developed a suite of accessories that offer up portable power solutions for all your camera gubbins - including laptops, monitors and (obviously) cameras. 

The best thing about the setup is that it provides a DC to AC solution, which will make pro photographers very happy. 

There's a bunch of choices as to how buy the kit. For a start, you can buy the products separately. And the prices are, whisper it, pretty decent.
