I am planning to do a coast-to-coast drive and want to shoot timelapse of the trip using my GoPro. I need to be able to power the camera independently of the internal battery. Is there a cable available from GoPro or elsewhere that will allow me to power the GoPro using a vehicle cigarette lighter or a transformer in a vehicle?

Couldn't you just as well use a small inverter? I've seen them at walgreens for less than $30 some of which even offer a USB charge option. I have one for my cell/anything else needing power in my electrical kit.
