    T1i - Does USB charge the battery?

    The charger for my T1i doesn't seem to be working. Does leaving the camera plugged into the USB port of a computer charge the battery?

    I don't think any DSLR supports this. They have pretty beefy batteries and USB only puts out 5 volts at a few milliamps, so it would probably take decades.
    Gear List:
    Canon 40D + Sigma 18-50mm + Canon 55-250mm

    Yeah, I kinda thought so.
    I found a small allen key & took the charger apart. When the plug swivels out, 2 small pads contact metal tangs completing the circuit. One had somehow gotten bent so a little tweaking fixed it right up.
