I wanted accessories for my new G.E. camera that I bought in February. This vendor is tricky. They identify the kit as though it is exclusively for two camera models "GE POWER Pro series X500, X5 Power Pro Digital Camera". Not even close and they know it. They got a steal on some old Vivitar camera accessories and did the bait-n-switch routine. Look closer and see that the bag says Vivitar. And that fifty cent USB card reader is physically too small to accept the larger format memory card required for the G.E. X500. As for the batteries and charger - junk! As others have stated, they just go dead quick; even if you charge them and don't power up the camera. Hey! maybe they call it a "Rapid Charger" because of how rapidly the batteries need recharging after little or no use. The vendor's responses to you concerns (and your valuable time) are wasted on irrelevant questions and with no intentions of resolve. Don't fall for this fraud. Run! Do not walk from the vendor ButterflyPhoto.
