A Real Necessity
on May 10, 2011
I purchased a Pentax Optio WG-1 ruggedized camera to take pictures in the field. The WG-1 only comes with one battery, and no car charger. Since I like to keep one battery constantly charged while using the other, I needed another battery. Not only that, the Pentax sucks up batter power pretty quickly in some modes, so an extra battery is essential.
I was pleased to find that the Wasabi Power Battery and Charger was available, and actually came with two batteries. I tested it out before deploying to the field, and liked what I saw:
1. The AC adapter isn't a big clunky cord, the prongs merely slide out of the unit to plug directly into an AC outlet. Nice
2. It came with car charger, which is a big plus if you're on the go.
3. The charging LED is clear and multi-colored, so knowing when you're charged is great. It turns green. The one that comes with the Pentax just turns off, wondering if it's charged, or just not plugged in.
Since it comes with two batteries, a car charger, and a nice neat charger package for AC use, it was the perfect choice for me at the price.
Shipping was quick and easy. No issues here. I think you will be pleased.
