    Great product for CX-675 users.

    Works perfect. I bought this for my Sony CX-675 Camcorder. It’s convenient, compact, simple, and 10x easier to use rather than what came with the camcorder. I like how the lights display half and full charge indicators. I know there’s cheaper devices out there, but I’ve always been the type to stay with manufacturer’s recommendations. I’ve tried aftermarket batteries and chargers in the past, and It usually ends up causing damage. So, do yourself a favor and go with what’s recommended. It will save you money down the road. My only negative comment is that it should have came with camcorder, but that’s how Sony and every other company rolls I guess.

    GREAT COMPACT SONY CHARGER

    My Sony AX53 came with this rather large bulky charger for recharging my battery and knew I had to find something more compact and easier to use and store. I saw this charger in the store with a reduced open-box price. I checked to see if it would charge my Sony battery that came with my camera and I was good to go. Just slide your battery in the charger and plug it in the wall and you are all set with LED lights to let you know the charging status of your battery. if you are looking for a small compact charger for your Sony Camcorder batteries, this is the one.

    Good Camera

    Silly, but I bought a Sony camera that only worked for 90 minutes. The AC Adapter is separate. So, in essence, I got to use my camera once and then when I needed it again ... sorry, dude, it's one and done. NO ONE should buy a product that has a shelf life of 90 minutes without someone telling him. Get a better BARKER. Better yet, Sony, just include the adapter. Raise the price if you have too, but if I ever find this short-coming in another Sony product, you can be rest assured, I won't be back. SERIOUSLY, you sold me a camera that I could only use for 90 minutes. If I'd known it was a disposable model, I'd of bought another camera.

    Great for backup charge

    When I am out using my Handycam I always carry a spare battery. But when I need to use the spare it's nice to be able to charge the used battery right away just in case while still using the camera. I was disappointed that a separate charger was not included with the Handycam but it was not a deal breaker. This charger is compact and the plug folds into the unit for carrying in the camera bag, the charge stops when the battery is full and the indicator light goes out so you know when it is ready.

    This little travel charger is perfect! It's compact since the prongs fold in. This also keeps it from snagging on other items in your camera/camcorder bag. The best part is that you can charge your battery while still using another battery in your camcorder rather than having to charge the battery while it's still attached to the camcorder. You NEED this for sure. I also like that it has notification lights so you know when the charging is done (or approximately how much longer it will take).

    I needed a charger for the battery for my video camera. I tried to buy on like the one that came with the camera, but the store did not have one in stock and I didn't have time to wait on an order (my daughter was getting married that day). Finally the sales person mentioned this device and after verifing that it was compatible, I purchased it, used it to charge my battery and was able to use the camera for her wedding. It saved the day! It is also more compact and portable than the bulky charger that came with the camera.

    Sony does it again...makes a great product...but it's an accessory that you shouldn't have to pay $60 extra for. It will give you a quick full charge and once you have tried charging your camcorder battery with your laptop as is suggested by the staff where I bought it, you only get about 1/2 the charge that the battery can hold....which makes this extra $60 charger a necessity. I'm pleased witth the charger, just think it should be packaged with the camera.

    I purchased this charger after getting the camera and finding out that the only way to charge the battery is with the provided cables. The charging cables are so big that it would not fit in the case that is recommended for the camera. Considering that I do a lot of traveling this was not ideal. So I looked up the charger. Although expensive, it is great. The battery was fully charged in no time. It's small and fits in the case. A great addition to my camera.

    Getting the Sony HDR-PJ540 32GB Flash Memory Camcorder with the Built-in projector was a good choice, love the video quality and performance. With this charger, it has keep my spare batteries on good good charges that helps me keep recording my memorable moments. The charger itself charges the batteries quick and safe. Can't complaint about this charger. I don't recommend to get those cheap aftermarket charger or batteries if you are looking to make your camcorders last long.

    This charger is built to be a mobile charger and not get hung-up or bent during transportation- Plug rotates inside the module when finished. Charger shows three LED lights to show charging status of the battery and another to show if it is still charging. Should of bought this one first. The other generic charger I bought is bulky and does not show the charging status.

    Small compact, making it easy to stuff into the camcorder bag for later use. Small enough to use in the car (with an inverter). Purchased this item because I mis-laid the power brick to recharge my Sony HDR-CX150 camcorder. Of course I found the brick after the device completed its task. Handy device to have around to keep second battery ready to go.

    This charger worked faster than I expected. Have not had a chance to judge how long the camcorder holds charge from using this device however. The only negative I found was the instruction booklet-it could have been a little clearer. I was glad the associate in the store had shown me the basics of use when purchasing the charger.

    Excellent choice for charging the sony video camera batteries. No need to use the cumbersome cord/plug that came with the camera. Charger functions well, is compact, plug prongs fold into the charger body for storage. Charging lights are easy to understand and charging is fast.

    We picked up this charger so that we didn't have to use the supplied charger with our video camera. It works well as a charger, plus it is a lot smaller than the supplied charger. It fits into our carry bag much easier and doesn't have any cords for the animals and children to get tangled in. We haven't found anything not good about it yet.

    This is an OEM battery charger and it works great! Just attach battery and plug into the wall, your battery will be charged when you need it. These chargers are better than trying to charge the battery while it is plugged into your camera.

    This charger will let you charge the camera battery outside of the video camera. Excellent if you have more than one battery. I find it easier to do this than hooking up the cameras included charger . It is importasnt to be sure to have at least one spare charged battery so one doesn't miss any of those important family events!

    This is a good charger for my battery that I have for my digital camera. The product worked just as expected. The prongs that can fold in when not using is a plus. Also the charge indicator light (red - needs charging / green - finish charging) is a nice feature.

    I had one of the aftermarket chargers because I wanted to save a few bucks, but on the 3rd charge up it semi-melted the battery, so not only am I out the 34.95 for the aftermarket charger I am out an additional 79.99 for new camera battery. LOVE the Sony charger now, it is fast, gives a full charge, and doesn't damage my batteries.

    Bought this because i was in pinch. Needed to use my camera the next day, and had lost my power cord. A cheaper alternative to buying a new one, and takes up less room than plugging the cord to the camera while charging. Great for travel too, as it takes up less room in a bag than a cord would as well. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    Standard charging device. I would have been happier if this came with the camera I bought. I think Sony is out of ouch with their customers. If you are out video taping, you are probably on vacation and do not have a computer available to charge the battery, so they make more money off you by offering this seperate.
