I purchased this charger last week after losing the Sony charger for my 7 year old digital camera.

Although fairly intuitive, this does not come with instructions. When I plugged in the charger, the little green light came on. When I inserted the (old) NP-FM50 battery, it still stayed green. My other chargers change state when a battery is inserted, so I thought I had a problem. I took a chance and ordered a replacement battery from Amazon, since the Sony battery was 7 years old.

When I inserted the new (good) battery, the light went from green to red, and then went to green when fully charged.

Overall, a great charger, at a very reasonable price. It seems to have a decent build quality and comes with a car adapter too (although I will probably never use it.)

The battery that came with this charger seems OK but the charger died after charging one battery.

I ordered this as a backup charger after I spent hours one day looking for the the original because I thought the price was too good not to. I've only used it a few times so far to charge a NP-FM55H battery - I found the original before this replacement arrived - and I've had no issues with yet. I'm keeping it in our big car together with a backup battery and a Compact Flash memory card as an 'emergency kit', just in case the original battery runs out of juice or the card in the camera runs out of space when we really, really want to take some pictures.

The following are worth knowing about this charger - features different from our original Sony charger:

- low price
- smaller than the Sony charger
- plugs directly into the wall outlet (no cord needed)
- comes with a cigarette lighter adapter (great to have this on the road)

To conclude: great for a backup or if the original charger gets lost.

I was excited to get this product after I lost my original charger.

I opened the box, plugged it into the wall, placed my battery into the charger and everything seemed fine. Within ten minutes I heard it popping and smelled a terrible burning smell! I quickly pulled it out of the wall and it was very hot and smoke was coming out of the wall outlet.
Bottom line - there is no way this product should be allowed on the market. It is a major hazard, and totally unsafe.

The product is fine. It works well but it takes a bit longer time to charge the battery I was expected. Another thing I have noticed is that battery easily get lose, it is not really strongly attached to the base especially when attached vertically to the wall outlet. Beside this small problem it is compact and fits well in camera bag or in car glove compartment. I recommend this product to anyone who need quick battery charging. Thanks.

When this package arrived, I couldnt wait to have a mobile charger for my camera battery. The other morning before a photoshoot I plugged it into the wall. within 3 minutes of plugging it my outlet,charger caught on fire. Literal flames . I was just happy I was here and able to save my house, and my 59.99 battery. not worth the extra few dollars for this when the batteries are 10x the price ! Oh and plus burning your house down :(

Still working, but only with an external AC-DC converter (wall wart). The built-in converter died after 24 hours. I suspect it might live longer if you unplug it when not in use. One of these days I'll open it up and see if it's just a couple of wires wrapped around a chunk of something remotely magnetic (like most of the quality chinese chargers on the maket today)

This is the best buy ever. I can use it instead of charging the battery in the camera and it has more minutes on the battery than being charged from the camera. The plus is that you can charge a battery while any where there is a plug even the car. This is a must have product.

Charges well. Easy to use. Does what I would expect it to do. Compact design. Wish it charged faster but it could be the size of the battery that makes charging longer than I had expected. Other than that, what more could you ask for.
