Why on Earth can’t I charge my camera by USB?


Whilst traveling it’s great that all my other devices can charge from my laptop – is it matter amps?

    Ken> I can see the convienience of using AA or AAA batteries though I can also see that using fixed sized batteries could increase the size of the camera. Having said that AA and AAA batteries CAN be charged by USB 🙂

    I have wondered this too.  I have a Canon Ixus 55 and would love it to charge via USB.  I have managed to find USB charging for everything I carry except this.
