I use my all-purpose RC battery charger which can charge most all battery chemistries. I made the battery cable short with a small gendered plug (micro Dean's plug if you are familiar with those). The I have two extensions that connect to that plug. One is an old USB cable with flakey data wires, but good power wires for powering the camera, and the other terminates in a full size Dean's plug to mate with my charger cable. The micro Dean's plug can easily handle the AAA cell 1C (800 mA) battery charging current.
