I'm pleased to note that this plugin is the exception to the too-good-to-be-true rule; well done that man.

Hi, I published a plugin for this recently, maybe you'll find it of interest.
It shows focus points for all all (post-2002) Canon DSLR and all Nikon DSLR. Currently needs Lightroom 5.
I'm tempted to say you're better off carrying additional batteries compared to trying to charge while outside. Even if you were in the sun a full day, would you expect to recharge 1 or 2 batteries?
Check out http://www.hahnel.ie/index.cfm?page=li-ionchargers&id=145&pId=145 - it'll charge 2 LP-E6's at once, comes with Euro and DC adapters, and can even charge USB devices.
I think you are right, I was just pointing out the limitation so you did not get surprised.
You might compare the price and weight versus the cost of carrying say 6-10 batteries too. I doubt if you would be 10 batteries away from a recharge. Just be wary of taking 10 of them on a aircraft, and never put them in checked luggage. You can pickup cheap third party batteries when you get to Europe and toss them before heading back.
You might want a dual charger, they typically charge batteries one after the other, not at the same time, but you do not have to be watching for the charge to complete and then manually change the batteries when charged. If you are using a grip with two batteries, its really worth while.
Plan to pay $$$, and it will likely take a fulld day to recharge a battery unless you have a high capacity solar panel.
I have a friend who uses one to charge an accessory battery that he then uses to recharge his phone. He says it works pretty well. Sorry I can't be more specific but he is not reachable for a month or so (trekking in Asia). So perhaps charging the supplemental battery (about the size of a fist) and then using that battery to charge his phone offsets any voltage fluctuation. But the output resembles a USB charger. Will that work?
I don't know of any solar monkey type device with its own battery that has any more than 5v USB output, but I am aware I don't know all the products!
I always thought that bayonets were affixed instead of mounted.
