Charge your Battery (Eclipse cartoon)

(c)2012 Bill Kramer
Minutes before totality is NOT the time to learn that your battery is almost dead. It pays to have a spare, fully charged battery ready to go at those times.

Before totality, prolonged exposure to the heat of the Sun and use of the camera may chew up a lot of the power quickly. Be prepared, have an extra battery or refrain from using the camera too much. Keep an eye on that power meter!
