Can anyone recommend me a 12v/cigarette lighter charger for the Canon S95 please? It is very important that it does not catch fire.

Alternatively, a means to charge from AA batteries?

LOL - Most photography related equipment recommendations are important that the items don't catch fire. – rfusca Feb 10 '11 at 17:33
You mean a charger for the battery, right? Because the camera itself does not charge, though it would be pretty awesome if you could plug it into your computer and charge it like you charged an iPhone. – Jason Feb 10 '11 at 17:49
@Jason Yep, on the S95 you take the battery out and put it into a charging cradle – Gaius Feb 10 '11 at 18:00
I am so tempted to tag this with fire. – mattdm May 24 '11 at 11:53

I'd recommend going with a decently rated power inverter: One example would be this "can sized" version from Rosewill.

That way you can use it with the standard charger, plus it's not a single purpose item.

Good call, I hadn't even thought of that (and I am a mechanical engineer by training!). What do you think of this? – Gaius Feb 10 '11 at 20:09
Seems to me that it'd work just fine. – chills42 Feb 10 '11 at 20:13
Worked for my laptops (not this model, though), so why shouldn't it work for a recharger? – Leonidas Feb 11 '11 at 5:27
