This thread is very short (compared to porting threads for other cameras) which leads me to guess that not much is working yet for the G1X.
Would be interesting to have a CHDK battery saver mode that sets options for longest battery life.
I shot 650 pictures in 2 hours on one battery (still 40% charge left) last night.
I'm thinking of hooking it up to an 8.4 volt external battery assuming the Canon voltage regulator can handle it, so I'm not tied to 120volts.
Wow - much better than my cameras. Maybe the G1X is not such a battery hog after all?
The Canon GX1 battery is rated at 7.4V. Even if I could afford a GX1, I'm not so sure I'd take the chance.
I'll run it by an engineer friend of mine who designs this kind of thing, but I think fully charged batteries can put out an extra 1volt, so I think it's OK. I love the smell of burning circuit boards in the morning!
