I am have an assignment coming up in Nepal, leaving tomorrow August 5th. The assignment is for 10 days, and I just learned that for the majority of that time we’ll be in a small village and won’t have power.
I’m shooting digital, and need to be able to download my CF cards to my harddrive, along with charging batteries, etc. We will have a car with us, and I’ve heard that there is some sort of power inverter you can get to plug into either the cigarette lighter on the car, or to attach to the car battery.
I am in Delhi right now, and have no idea where/how to find a power inverter in Delhi. i’m wondering if anyone in Delhi might have one that I could use for the trip? I’d be happy to rent it from you for the time I’m using it, and return it to you on August 16 or 17.
Sooo, two questions….
- Does anyone have have a power inverter that I could rent for 10-12 days? Does anyone know where can I buy a power inverter in Delhi?
Thanks so much for your help!!!
PS- Alternate suggestions are also welcome. Some people have mentioned solar panels, but I’m unsure how that would work with powering everything, and it’s not a treking trip, so mostly I will be staying in one area shooting in peoples homes.
