This charges in 1-1.5 hrs instead of 3+ hours. It is very handy in that regard, it just costs way too much. It is really small and compact and the prongs fold in for travel use.

Charges quicker than the one shipped with the camera. Full charge in 90 minutes. Just add battery & plug in. Needs adapter for foreign outlets.

I love my camera. But suddenly after a year I couldn't find the charger - I must have left it somewhere in my travels. This was disappointing, no charger no extra battery and I couldn't recharge my other battery either, and couldn't use the camera now at all! Stopped me dead in my tracks. I started the search to find a replacement and was very surprised that I couldn't replace the original stuff! Then I found these on Amazon.com - both the battery and the charger - PRICEY! But others are imitations. I am happy with the new equipment. They actually work better (the battery tells you how much battery life is left and the charger works faster) and I would rather pay more for more than less for less.

I agree this is a bit pricey, but it helps you save packing space while traveling. It also charges your battery much quicker than the supplied camera charger. If you need a travel charger, this fits the bill.

This is great for traveling or when your other charger breaks. The prongs fold for easy packing. Too bad of the cost, but it is worth it in the end. Always have a back up.

It works great! It was also $30.00 less to buy it online rather than the store!

I have a SONY DSC-HX9V which comes with the SONY NP-BG1 battery pack. I also purchased a spare battery pack, the SONY NP-FG1. This charger can charge both battery packs in about 30 mins each. It charges fast and works really well.

Bottom Line: If you have the SONY NP-FG1 or the SONY NP-BG1 battery pack, get this charger. You'll love it!

It was about a year ago that my camera charger was misplaced for my Cybershot camera. After it died, the camera sat gathering dust in my camera drawer without any power. After much deliberation over the price, I decided to get the official Sony charger rather then an aftermarket charger. I managed to find an open box charger are a steep discount, and it is that charger that I am writing this review off of.

To start, one thing that I cannot help but notice is the actual size increase from my OEM G-series charger that was packaged with my Cybershot W230. While not hugely larger, it is bigger and a little bit of a pain to stow away in a backpack where room is hard to find. Don't get me wrong, the unit itself measures 7.5cm x 4.3cm x 3.5cm, make sure you have room backpackers!

While I cannot recall how fast my OEM charger was (as it was a year ago since I last used it), I can tell you that this Travel Charger is fast, as in super fast. With a dead battery (0%) it fully charged the battery in about 150minutes give or take, just as it states on the packaging. This makes it a great charger for quick stops at the hostel or hotel to juice up before heading out once more.

As of right now, my battery has been holding a good charge, and I unfortunately don't have a new battery to test with, so that will not be included in this review.

In conclusion, I can say that most people will be quite satisfied with the Sony BCTRG Travel Charger for their G-Series battery cameras. While the steep price is hard to justify, it works fine and well as it should.
