If you've gotten into the proper spirit for using your Contour camera, that means you're probably using it anywhere but in your house although there's nothing wrong with that. It's just that the Contour is so well-suited to documenting the great outdoors. This means, however, that you'll need to keep it charged in places where there might not be an AC power plug. That's where this charger comes in. Designed to plug in to your car's cigarette lighter port, this charger will top off your Contour camera in less than 3 hours.
