Cheap charger with convenient car adaptor
on November 10, 2012
I bought this to charge a couple of cheap batteries I am using for an LED light. As another reviewer pointed out, it comes with no instructions whatsoever. You plug it in and start guessing. In my review of said batteries, I pointed out that while I would use them on a camera light, I would not risk a more expensive camcorder with batteries I bought for a couple of bucks. Well, apply the same logic here. A Sony battery is going to cost $40-$170. Nothing about the quality of the finish, the quality of the packaging, or the lack of instructions convinces me to risk expensive batteries in this thing. It seems to work with the cheap ones though.
So far, it seems to charge my brand x batteries which have so far not turned into paperweights and continue to work like champs in my light. The lack of instructions in. Or on the box to clarify when a battery is charged or if it is smart enough to know to stop is annoying enough that I ding them one star.
