Can You Charge a Lumix Digital Camera With a Laptop?


The Panasonic Lumix line of cameras all have their own battery charger that has to be plugged into an electric outlet. There is no way to charge your camera through a laptop's USB ports.


  • You may find that your Panasonic Lumix camera battery dies in a situation where there is not an available power source. If the camera allowed you to plug it into a laptop, you could charge it through a USB port. However, none of the Panasonic Lumix cameras have this ability.


  • The power from a laptop USB port provides only around 500 milliamps of power. That is not enough power to charge a large camera battery, which is why so few digital camera designs have ever attempted to include the USB charging feature.


  • Because USB charging would have to be included in the camera's original design, there is, unfortunately, no solution to this problem. If USB charging is a necessary feature for you, you will have to look for a different camera model that can charge through a USB port. However, because these cameras run on a smaller amount of power, your images may not have the same quality as those taken with your Panasonic Lumix.
