So far, the charger has been used to charge 2 Sony batteries, and it worked perfectly so far. What else would I want?

A great choice

Charger Usability

I needed a charger for the batteries (NP-BX1) of my Sony camera, which I purchased at B&H (enjoying the camera!) and had to do an extensive search to find the correct charger for the batteries. I reviewed the posted comments about the charger and how you had to insert the batteries upside down to charge and that you needed the adapter plate to use the charger for the NP-BX1 batteries. I was a little concerned that I would have to pay extra for the plate as I had seen on other sites. After reading all of the related information about the charger, I placed my order. While waiting for my order to arrive, I started worrying that the adapter plate was not included. I re-read the information on the site and hoped for the best. I was glad when it arrived and the plate was included. I like that there are multiple ways to charge, the size is small enough that it will fit in small spaces for traveling, and that the lights (red when charging/green when finish) lets you know when it is done. It would have been good to have an estimate of how long it takes to charge, however, it I can be figured out after charging a couple of times and keeping notes of how long it takes. The downside is that you have to be on the lookout for when the light changes.

I like it.

After two weeks of daily use, We are very pleased that the B&H Pro Video Customer Service guy suggested this charger. Yes, I forgot his name. It works like a champ and also has a USB port. We found ourselves using to charge cell phones as well. Very convenient and thanks again to all the B&H crew! Signed #travelingKaspersWorld

Works well. Compact. After a long day of shooting, one battery can recharge here while the other recharges in the camera. Nice to have a 2nd method for recharging the batteries.

If I buy this unit, could SONY invalidate their warranty on the battery because it is not OGM?
Asked by: Harvey
I don't believe so because I have used Watson chargers with my cameras and the manufacturer never invalidated my warranty.

you can find the different Watson interchangeable battery plates listed as accessories with their matching cameras. it is my understanding that the system is made to work with a variety of brands and models, but you can check with BH customer service to make sure.

question

Can it be used with a Sony RX-100?
Asked by: maite
Yes, I've been using this charger because the Sony RX-100 comes with only a USB cord to charge the battery thru the camera. The little door on the outlet is fragile and it just seems better to take the battery out and charge it rather than thru the camera all the time. The RX-100 battery fits this charger.

I've got this charger for one year now, and it works perfectly well, both with the original SONY battery and a Watson replacement. I've never charge the batteries inside the camera any more!
