I just found one photo of the LP-E6 charger with ratings listed, and those show output 1000mA at 8.4V while 5V 2A input is provided as input.

Since the OP post is for the LP-E17 charger, I found this which shows the actual product label and it says input 5V (no input current) output 4.2V / 8.4V 500ma. Puzzling, dual voltage for a single battery type?!

Continuing the search for info on the 5V USB charger, I found another actual product label for a different manufacturer's product which says input 5VDC 2A 10W, and output 8.4V 0.6A 5W
More believeable. But it would take THREE HOURS to charge a single 1800mAh battery

It would take longer than three hours. You can ignore the Voltage output spec. Li-ion chargers are CC/CV. Constant Current, Constant Voltage.
They charge at a Constant Current until the battery reaches 4.2V then slowly reduce current, keeping the battery at Constant Voltage of 4.2V until it is fully charged.
So for a flat LP-E6 the output voltage would start closer to 6V but that is just a result of the Current which is what the charger is regulating.

From what I found, there is no USB charger for the LP-E17.

You're better off getting a battery pack that has a wall port to plug in the OEM charger. I have an Omnicharge 20 that charges electronics via USB but also has one AC port.

There are other brands that also has something similar with the AC port.

You may have meant charging from a USB port on a PC. But you can find chargers that work from a wall plugged USB adapter...https://www.amazon.com …tal-Cameras/dp/B01EKU80KC (external link). Even that charger says it can be done but personally I think current limitations may make it a slow process.

I have all genuine canon batteries. The car charger i dint need. I have a power supply in the van that will let me use the origonal canon charger. Im just trying ti find a way to charge when im away from the van in the middle of nowhere

That was OP's response to me asking if charger has to be USB.

That response indicates to me OP does not understand my suggestion, which is John's charger:

https://www.amazon.com …eras-LC-E17/dp/B01ICB1V10 (external link)
Plus a 12V powerbank.
http://www.dx.com …shpQod7F0AlA#.W​n0uJ01G08R (external link)

Problem solved. Also gets around half the posts in this thread, the low charge current of a USB (due to 5V) charger.

I'd buy a better quality 12V powerbank than the one I linked, just providing an example.
The original powerbank I linked is no longer available from that supplier, but it had 19V and 16V output also meaning it could be used for running a laptop.

Another option is to use something like this

With a large capacity (10,000 mAh or more) external USB battery pack like below

the Newmova description in amazon.com is "Input: 5V 2A; Output:8.4V 600mA*2"...so the charge rate will be limited by the USB port to supply 2A ...most laptops USB ports will NOT supply current at that rate, lucky to get 1A out of them as USB 3.0 spec is for 0.9A from a computer USB port. 'USB Power' specs (which are different from USB for computing purposes) can provide 2A from appropriate wall warts.

Which is why I also linked the external battery pack. Also, going under the input current rating makes charging slower but it is not detrimental to anything.

Also, I used to live in Belmont near the caltrain station :)
