          Hi- I understand the wifi is excellent here but was curious how you charged devices or camera batteries with there being any electricity. I plan on bringing a battery stick but it only provides one charge. Hoping to take lots of pics and may need a charge of batteries. Thanks for any input you may have to offer.
