This item broke after using it for 1 year. One of the plugs fell out!

I use this charger instead of the one that came with my NEX-7 camera since it has auto-shut-off. The Sony handbook says if you don't remove the battery after it charges, the life of the battery will be shortened. I keep forgetting about the battery in the charger. This is serious since the batteries cost $50 a piece. The charger is also a lot lighter than the one that came with the camera. This is an issue since when I go on a trip - lightness counts! The USB port is a nice feature. I don't have to take another charger for my I-Pod. Also, the Car charger will be really useful on camping trips. The thing about the NEX-7 is that one battery only lasts for a day's worth of shooting so one needs to be able to charge batteries at all times.

I bought a used Sony NEX-5 camera that didn't come with a charger. Since I spent several hundred dollars for the camera, I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg for a new charger, so I went to Amazon. I came across this charger from MaximalPower and was hesitant since there were only 2 reviews. I went to MaximalPower's website and after reading other reviews on the net decided to purchase it. I can tell you that so far it surpassed my expectations. Decent build quality, charges perfectly, and is compact enough to carry in a bag. I purchased this charger on June 26, 2012 and so far it's working great. The only thing I can ask for is durability, which I'll know more with time. Would I purchase this item again? Yes! Would I recommend it? Absolutely, you won't be disappointed. I know I'm not.

Good value and works with NEX-6 battery, but first the picture is different than the product, second, the design is not really thought through.

The difference between what's pictured here and what arrived is that there are little prongs on either side of the area where the battery slides in, I guess meant to guide it in and secure it in place. One is tempted to snap the battery in from above, but I fear that those two pieces would break off easily. There is a one-star review here which talks about those prongs/tabs. Be careful with them.

This works really well for my NEX-5 battery. I would buy this over the stock charger. The USB port is a really nice feature too. When I travel all I have to bring is this and a really small cable for my phone. no second charger needed.

I am an computer engineer and more than a little obsessive-compulsive about my camera batteries and the charging thereof. I bought a Sony NEX-6 a while back, and as any of you who own one know, it does not come with an external charger. This is a problem especially if you have more than one battery, and the way the NEX eats batteries, most people have more than one. I usually don't buy aftermarket chargers so I plunked down WAY more than this cost for Sony's external charger. But it takes forever to charge the battery. I'm not sure what they were thinking, but it's a 280mA charger on a 1000 mAH (or so) battery. Do that math and it comes up at almost 4 hours to get to 90% or so. To charge ONE battery. Not so good when you consider that consumer Li-ion batteries are designed to be charged safely in as little as 1 to 1.5 hours.

So I sent the Sony charger back and bought this, frankly not having much in the way of expectations. Turns out that it's great. I measured the output of mine at about 550 mA so I get a charged battery in about 2 hours. It is a little smaller than Sony's unit, and it's voltage/current circuit is just as accurate. The only thing about it that does not impress is the flimsy plastic clips that retain the battery. So far they have held up OK (about 6 months) and I don't think they will break in normal use, but I worry about one getting broken off in the camera bag. Worst case I'll use a rubber band, or at this price, just get another one.

So now I can charge one battery in the FC500 while the other charges in-camera.

Good deal. Just buy one, you'll love it.

This battery charger does the job - No complaints. It holds the battery (not too tight, not too loose) and charges the battery without damage. Good construction quality. All accessories were supplied.

The item that shipped when I ordered this was not as pictured. Instead of the charger with the flat top, they sent me the one with two delicate (and breakable) tabs sticking up holding the battery in place. (See item # B004460DIA.) It has the same model number and manufacturer as indicated in this page, but it is not the design that is shown here. Returning.
