I just got a Lumix LX10 and the battery life is abysmal when running cellphone remote control through wifi, which I need to do because I have a physical disability.

How hard would it be to rig up an external battery or convert it into a USB port that I could plug into a power hub?

I have been looking up videos and it seems that most with cameras if you take apart a battery pack there's a board that connects to lithium cells. Can you just remove the cells and attach a wire to each connector that runs outside the camera to either a 7.4v battery or something that regulates it to that volage? Or is there some safety mechanism in Panasonic cameras that would stop that?

Thanks!

No need to hack up something yourself, this already exists, google for "DMW-BLH7E BLH7 Dummy Battery DMW-DCC15" (around $20 on Amazon US).
