The Sony battery slides in easily and the charge indicator clearly shows the charging status.
Curt
It also includes a USB port so you can use the camera to charge one battery and charge another in the unit, very handy!
Sacha Potter
And even better, it comes with an adapter to use in Europe -- I couldn't be happier about that.

Digipower sells a wonderful charger which in my experience has worked extremely well in the past. I purchased my initial charger at Best Buy and needed additional chargers for which I turned to Amazon. As described on the Amazon website the TC-55S is the correct unit to charge Sony lithium ion camera battery packs. This is also confirmed by checking the Digipower website. The problem is that these chargers are mislabeled. The front of the box clearly states the units are for Samsung batteries and cameras (model TC-55SG) but the back of the box has a sticker indicating the unit to be a model TC-55S for Sony cameras. Peeling the label back shows the wrong model number and the charger itself also has the wrong model number. Whoever was responsible for placing these barcode stickers on the boxes clearly was mistaken. The TC-55SG will not charge Sony batteries. I will need to return the four units I purchased but do not dare to have Amazon ship replacements because of the labeling error. I will try to enclose photos

I really dislike in-camera charging and immediately ordered this unit when I purchased my Sony RX100.

I was a bit leery of a third party charger ruining my OEM battery but it works well with the NP-BX1 battery. I've had no issues after several complete charges.

Note that this charger accommodates multiple battery types and the NP-BX1 fits flush left in the slot with the green arrow facing up and in. It also includes a USB port so you can use the camera to charge one battery and charge another in the unit, very handy!

Pros:
-Chargers a battery and a second via the USB port w/ in-camera charging (charges my smart phone too!)
-Compact
-Foldable plug
-100-240 volts so you can use it worldwide (w/ a plug adapter of course)
-Works well with the NP-BX1 battery

Cons:
-Bright screen (not a big deal and nothing some tape can't take care of)
-Price is acceptable but not a "steal" (at least in my book)

So far I have no complaints and I hope this unit continues to work reliably. Nice to have external charging back!

I have a Sony DSC-HX9V with a Sony NP-BG1 battery that is about a month old. I purchased the Digipower TC-55S as I purchased a Sony NP-FG1 (InfoLithium) battery as a spare and did not want to have to use the proprietary Sony USB cable to charge my battery via the camera.

I received the TC-55S and charged the NP-BG1. When I put the battery back in the camera I now receive an error 'For use with compatible battery only' on the camera screen. Google searches on the internet indicate that the 'smart' battery is now fried.

I am returning the charger- not sure if my specific unit is defective or if this is how the Digipower charger works (i.e. not smart battery friendly)- but either way I am out a $25 battery. :(

A superb tool. Works very well and the indicator of how far the battery has been charged makes it quite useful.

I was looking for a good charger for my Sony DSC-RX100 camera and I purchased both the TC-55S and the Sony BC-TRX chargers because I wasn't sure which would be better (and more compact) for traveling to Europe. I didn't even open the Sony charger. The Digipower device is exactly what I was looking for. It is more compact than the Sony charger (2-3/8" x 4" x 1" for Digipower TC-55S and 2" x 1-1/2" x 3-1/2"), so it will "pack" more efficiently in my bag (I don't smoke, but the Digipower looks about the size of a pack of cigarettes). I also like that it includes a slick plug adaptor for European electrical outlets. The Sony battery slides in easily and the charge indicator clearly shows the charging status. I used the USB port to charge my iPhone 5 at the same time. No problems.

For travelers, this charger means I can use it for charging everything - my RX100 camera, my iPhone 5 and my iPad (3) - on my trip without having to bring my Apple adaptors or other charging devices. That's well worth the price, in my opinion. It doesn't include any USB or micro cords, but, like me, you probably have a gazillion of those already.

It happend to me too. I ordered a TC-55S charger and got a TC-55SG charger which will not work with my Sony NP-BX1 batteries. Amazon was very good about giving me a return refund, however.

I like charging my batteries outside of my camera. I charge one while using the other. The RX-100 promotes in camera charging. So there is no OEM charger yet.

The charger works reliably. It is rated for 100-240v so you can travel with the charger. It comes with a prong adapter for the two tube asia/europe plug, but its just loose so I'll likely lose this.

A must have for travelers who own a RX-100.

Generally "universal" though check the reviews to see if your particular battery will fit --- I got this as an external charger for my Sony RX100 since I don't like the in-camera charging --- it works perfectly! And even better, it comes with an adapter to use in Europe -- I couldn't be happier about that. Highly recommended.
