Simple question... gotta recharge in the field. Can the Panasonic dual charger be used? The plug says it takes 12V DC in, but I'm having a hell of a time finding a cig plug to whatever Panasonic is using to input into the charger. It SHOULD work, if I can find a cable/adapter. Anybody have any luck with this? Any other alternatives?

If I understand, an inverter (http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=bsd&cs=04&sku=A8582142&ST=pla&dgc=ST&cid=298721&lid=5704670&acd=12309152537461010&ven1=A8582142:101952148149:901pdb6671:c&ven2=:)may be what you're looking for.

Yeah, kinda forgot about using a small inverter. May be the best way to go. Don't want to reinvent the Wheel!

Haha. This is true. They work well. I ran several LED panels off one. Beats a genny for smaller things as long as you don't let it drain your battery!

Use an inverter you can purchase at any auto parts store or big box store. Yes, it definitely works. I use mine to charge batteries during company moves.

I got this dual charger from Amazon which includes a mains and car cigarette charger adaptor cable, works pretty well if not the fastest of charges.
