    Is there a travel charger for the NEX. The stock charger is almost as big as the camera.

    Sony don't do one though a search on Amazon brings up a few third party options. I'm not sure any of them are that much smaller though.

    I found a few on ebay after I posted last night. They are those generic chargers that have the camera specific attachment. I've bought a bunch of them over the years for use on other cameras. They work fine. If you have more than one and one of them breaks, you can slip off the top part that is battery specific and slip it onto another one. I wish I could just buy that adapter piece separately. They are dirt cheap. $4 for the NEX version. I've gotten them for $1 for other cameras.

    I got one of those things in China. They are all the rage there. They work just fine, you just need to adjust it to fit.
