I have the NEX-6. It kind of burns through the battery pretty quickly. I purchased this and another sony battery. This little charger does an excellent job of quickly recharging that other battery. You will not need more that 2 batteries and this charger.

To keep these type of batteries fresh, just change them as soon as the other one is topped off. Lithium batteries are best if used in the top of their charge range (they will last a LOT longer if you never take them down to zero). It is the exact opposite of the old style rechargeable batteries that you had to take to zero or they got a "memory."

Anyway, keep your camera off that USB cable, and in your hands capturing memories. Get this product and free up your camera from the "battery charging time."

If you bought one of the newer NEX cameras (NEX-5R for me) you discovered that SONY cut costs by getting rid of the battery charger. You have to charge the battery via a USB plug into the camera now. If you have a second battery, which is almost a must with these cameras, you have to charge them before hand or wait for the camera to be fully charged before you can take it out and document the beautiful world we bought our cameras for. Who's got time to sit there and wait for our cameras to charge?

Like Sweet Brown says, "Ain't nobody got time for that!"

Overall this is a good charger. It's made by Sony so maybe that's why the extra price. Paying $35+ for a charger seems dumb to me. But you pay for the Sony Name Brand...

I would like to give this charger a 1 star rating for the simple fact it should come with any sony camera that requires a battery of this size. I won a Sony a6000 and a7 camera and both take this size battery which requires this charger. Forget about charging it in-camera, that's slowww and ridiculous, especially when you need multiple batteries for such juice draining cameras. The charger works well I just wish it was included with the cameras. Beware of imitations, they may or may not work and the cheap batteries knock-offs come with are not worth it IMO.

I went on a cruise and as I exited the boat...DANGIT!! I left my sony camera charger connected to the outlet inside of the room that my husband and I were staying in. I called the cruise line...but lo and behold, surprise surprise...no one found it *insert sad face here____*. It took me a while to replace it because of the price and it was a challenge for me to find an original authentic camera charger for my Sony NEX-5n lol. SMH. It works like a dream and takes between 1 hr and 30minutes to 2 hours for a full charge. I also have a generic backup charger and it seems to charge a bit faster, but all in all it's a great charger. I'm just happy that I now have the original back in my possession.

I have now tried a wide enough selection of chargers to tell everyone why for the W series batteries this is the one you want.

It has nothing to do with the battery. It is entirely based on how long a charger should last before breaking in an average camera bag.

Nothing protrudes from, or will break off of this charger. Even if you drop your bag.

End of Review. Nothing else really sets this charger apart from the rest.

The little arms that oh so gently caress the battery while it charges in the premium tech charger broke while the compartment I stored it in was being zipped shut. I have two Sony's. Well worth the price.

The new NEX6 camera comes only with an in-camera charger cable which means it is not possible to charge a second battery conveniently. This is the factory Sony charger, in my opinion worth a few bucks to get the genuine article.

The real thing works great. It has a light that changes when the battery is full and has fold out prongs and connects to the wall. The difficult thing though, is to know you are getting an authentic charger. I bought one here that was marked as refurbished, which I'm ok with, but ended up showing up as a drop ship from Asia, wasn't authentic, never fully charged the battery, and had a plug cable with it.

The device is great. Charges fast, and the only way I could assure I got a genuine one was to re-purchase with Amazon as the seller. I have never had this happen on an Amazon purchase before, so I wanted to mention it.

Also, the other reseller refunded me fully, without sending back the bad unit... which will be recycled immediately.

Great, exactly like the charger that comes with the Sony a7Rll. The picture is misleading it implies that there is a cable from the charger itself, but that is not the case. It has a foldout plug in which is what I needed/wanted.
