5.0 out of 5 stars Too soon to tell., April 14, 2012

This review is from: Wasabi Power Battery (2-Pack) and Charger for Sony NP-BG1, NP-FG1 and Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H3, DSC-H7, DSC-H9, DSC-H10, DSC-H20, DSC-H50, DSC-H55, DSC-H70, DSC-H90, DSC-HX5V, DSC-HX7V, DSC-HX9V, DSC-HX10V, DSC-HX20V, DSC-HX30V, DSC-N1, DSC-N2, DSC-T20, DSC-T100, DSC-W30, DSC-W35, DSC-W50, DSC-W55, DSC-W70, DSC-W80, DSC-W90, DSC-W100, DSC-W120, DSC-W130, DSC-W150, DSC-W170, DSC-W200, DSC-W210, DSC-W215, DSC-W220, DSC-W230, DSC-W270, DSC-W290, DSC-W300, DSC-WX1, DSC-WX10, Handycam HDR-GW77V (Electronics)
Delivery was within about two weeks and everything was in good condition. The charger seems to work fine once you realize that the battery has to be installed with the label facing in (for my battery NP-BG1). There should be better instructions. When looking carefully at the contacts you can see that the charger is designed to accept several types as there are two negative and two positive contacts and batteries can be installed in either orientation. When a discharged battery is installed the LED should be red, if installed backwards or fully charged it is green. A totally depleted battery took about two hours to charge. Unlike the Sony battery that came with my camera, the Wasabi battery when installed displays the time remaining for the battery. The reason for only three stars at this point is because I probably need at least another month to verify everything. It is certainly much better than the charger that came with my Sony camera that only charges in the camera. You can't really use it while its plugged in. So far looks like a great buy compared to $79.95 for one battery alone in the stores. Two batteries, plug in charger, adapter for the car and an adapter for Europe (the charger is dual voltage). This could be 5 stars when I have had enough time to verify the battery quality and the car charger.

I took the batteries and charger on a 25 day European vacation and they worked marvelously. They charged directly from the 240v just using the adapter and they lasted the time indicated. I'm upping the rating to 5 star.

Dude, if you can't verify a rating, then DON'T GIVE ONE. That's not how ratings work. You dirty the rating system when you do that.
