I mean, what can you really say about it? Place battery in charger and watch it charge! Very exciting. It comes in a large red box. The charger is small and should be easy to store while traveling. I don't understand why Canon does not include this with the camera. Well I do know, more money selling it by itself. A very useful item to have. Very expensive for what it is but what choice do you have. 5 stars for design of it but it loses a star for the price.

This is awesome. I always get the portable charger when I get a camera that does not come with one. They save alot of time and headaches. Easy to travel with. It is also great to throw a spare battery on to charge in a hurry (I can honestly say, I dont think I ever used the power cord from my old camera.)

It also shaves 50 min off the recharge time for the standard battery, even more for the extended battery.

The Confusion:
There seems to be some confusion why the charger is recommended when the videocam seems to originally come with one.

If you own a videocam like f.e. HF11, HF10, HF100 etc. or any other you will find included a POWER SUPPLY !! <-- read this ? ... let it sink in ...

Its true that the power supply can - while its connected through the videocamera - charge the battery, but that is NOT what its made for primarily.

The difference:

a) A power supply does not care if your battery is half full or empty it just connects it and keeps it connected even after it became already full. A power supply also doesnt care if the battery is charged slow or fast.

b) The charger has some intelligence built in. It does communicate with the battery and checks the battery status. It then (dis)charges it GENTLY to the maximum possible and keeps it at that state. It stops loading when the battery is full and indicates with the green light that charging has finished.

The result:
Using the power supply regularly will reduce the lifecycle of the rechargeable battery, hence it will suffer an earlier death.

The charger itself:
- the charger gives each of your batteries a personalized treatment
- Its true that the packaging is helplessly oversized
- I found the charger to be comfortable AND robust enough for travelling
- NO messing with cables
- You can charge one battery meanhwile using the other on the go

--- How this charger protects your videocam: ---

- maximizes the lifecycle of the battery
- reduces the usage of the compact power supply connector on the videocam

You MUST plugin the power supply to the videocam in order to copy the video data to the PC/MAC.

I first went with a far less expensive third-party charger for these batteries. It seemed to work. But, when I tried to use the charged battery the camera, the camera told me the battery was dead. Save yourself some aggravation and purchase this charger.

Also note that your camera may have a built-in battery which needs charging as well. Even if you use an external charger, you should occasionally charge the battery through the camera's AC adapter to insure that everything is fully charged.

I purchased this charger in conjunction with an HF S100 camcorder for the convenience and charge speed factor. The charger charges quicker than the camcorder does. Plus it's far easier to stick a battery in the charger and plug it into a wall socket (no wires!) than it is to untangle and hook the two power supply wires to the camera. If you have two batteries this is a must as you cannot run the camcorder off wall power and charge an attached battery at the same time. It's also much smaller than the camcorder's power supply and wires, so it fits better in small camera bags.
The only knock I'm giving this product (aside from price) is the two simple status LEDs. They only tell you if it's charging or finished. Some of my other Canon battery chargers (that were included with their respective products) indicate the charging status - 25%, 50%, 75% complete.

The battery that comes standard with almost any camcorder usually doesn't last very long. The solution is to get an extra battery, preferably with extended life. The problem, of course, is that it takes a long time to charge those puppies. You can always have a couple ready to go in the morning, but if you are recording all day you'll want to charge up your spare while the other is in use.

That's where this battery charger comes in handy. I bought it for use with my Canon VIXIA HF10 and my HFS10, and it works great. As others have noted it charges your batteries a lot more quickly than if they were plugged in to the camcorder - plus it saves some wear and tear on the adapter plug for your camcorder.

Best of all, this is very compact. It fits in a little side pocket of my camcorder case and leaves room to spare. The plug flips in and out for easy storage. If you plan to get a lot of use out of your Vixia camcorder, this is really a must-have accessory. Highly recommended.

So up until this point, I've exclusively been using the charger that came with the camera since I bought it in 2011. You know the drill: uncover the hole, plug it in, make sure the two pieces are firmly connected, plug it into the wall, set your camera out somewhere and charge. I frequently worried about my cat jumping on the cable or chewing on it. And honestly the whole thing was kind of awkward for me. So needless to say, a charger that allows me to leave my camera safely in its bag, free of cables and with a light that tells me quite clearly when it's done charging (which doesn't take long), I love! Did I mention that you can charge and shoot at the same time? Yes, please!

Pros
Uses wall outlet
Discrete design allows you to plug it into the lower outlet and still utilize the top one
Light tells you when it's charging and another color for when it's done
Can charge your extra battery here while filming on the primary battery, and vice versa

Cons
This will take up a little more space on your wall, or power strip than a standard plug
You do need an outlet (but that's true of the standard charger as well)

Not sure what else to say about it other than I'm already loving this!
