Outstanding charger for Canon Rebel series
on October 27, 2013
The LC-E8E is the standard Canon charger for several Rebel-series DSLRs. According to the product title here, it is for the T2i. That is only partially correct; it is also the same model used on the T3i.
The charger comes in two parts--the first is the charging block itself, of course. And the second is the power cord that connects the charging block to the wall outlet. My T3i's factory charger power cord went missing somewhere, but, sadly, Canon doesn't offer the ability to buy just that part. I have to pay for a whole new charger.
The charger is high-quality: it charges the camera batteries in a reasonable period of time, has a functional indicator light so you know when it's fully charged or in progress, and you get an impressively long-lasting battery. Having tried several after market options, I'll gladly buy this one at 2x or 3x the cost any day of the week and twice on Sunday: it is the best quality and best performing I've found.
That said, I find it eminently annoying that Canon isn't selling just the power cord portion of the charger. And I also wish the charging block had space for two batteries. These two factors have lowered my rating for this product to 4 stars.
