Timelapse

I have a Nikon DSLR D7100 and am trying to do a time-lapse of my print. The print is going to take 70 hours. Any idea on how to extend the battery for the camera or figure out a different way to keep it charged so I don't have large gaps? Currently it makes it about 3 hours and that's fine when I am here to take it out and replace, but while at work or asleep, doesn't work so well.

RE: Timelapse

Can you power your camera from its charger?

Cheerio,

External power

I bought an external power supply for my Canon that has a dummy battery pack that goes into the camera which has a cable going to a  brick that plugs into the mains.  The camera will run until the card is full.  My recollection is that I paid $40 or $50 for it so cheaper than a  Canon battery.

I did a search for Nikon external power and a few popped up on Amazon.

This is the same thing I did.  I ended up purchasing one for my Canon andthe Nikon 7100 has a similar product.
