    The best size and shape for a charger.

    Especially with new cameras that don't even come with external chargers, I'm often looking to buy chargers for my cameras. And since I have several cameras, one of the bigger chores is trying to fit all of the chargers onto the surge protector / outlet strip that I use for the job. It's just difficult to understand how the people who design these things so often ignore the fact that these chargers have to fit into power strips and such things along with other chargers, power bricks, and plugs -- it's especially irritating when the batteries go into the chargers "side to side" instead of "front to back," which almost always makes them too wide to fit something into the receptacles next to them. But, that is exactly where this charger is so good -- with the battery going in front-to-back, you can actually fit other plugs into receptacles on either side of it, on most any power strip you might use. Otherwise, of course, it's a great, fast charger, with lights that give you very good feedback regarding how the charging session is going. I wish all chargers were like this!

    Battery charger works perfectly for the Sony A6000

    I love how quickly this charger gets our batteries up and running for the Sony A6000. We weren't expecting the increased charging speed when we got it--but rather we just wanted the convenience. I didn't like having to leave our high end camera on the kitchen counter just to charge the battery--especially considering we have two excited young boys in our house who love to get into everything! I would highly recommend this charger for increased charging speed, protection for your camera by not having to leave it out of its case to charge the battery, and just for plain old convenience. Even 15-20 minutes on the charger will give you some good juice to keep shooting photos--we actually keep the charger in our camera bag on the go just in case!

    A Much-Needed Accessory for Sony Cameras

    Let me start by saying that Sony cameras are awesome - great sensors, growing selection of lenses, intuitive design. Perhaps one of their only shortcomings is that they burn through batteries very quickly. This means that if you are planning on using your camera a lot, you'll need a second battery. However, for reasons that elude me, Sony does not package a wall charger with its cameras - instead, it only includes a USB cable that you can use to charge the battery while it's in the camera. But that renders the camera useless while you charge the battery. If you really want the flexibility to charge your backup battery while you use the camera, getting one of these chargers is an absolute must!

    In this case, OE is always best

    I purchased a non-Sony battery charger and battery for my other Sony SLT due to leaving the one that came with my camera at home for vacation. I will never do that again! It's worth the extra money to purchase the Sony brand, and Best Buy is a source I can trust. I heard many stories of substandard/fake batteries sold on Amazon that don't work very well (or at all). I like the lights on the charger that allow you to see how much the battery has charged. I usually let it charge all the way, but I've had some events where I had to grab and go. The lights on the charger let me know if I have enough juice to power my camera for the quick run. Love that!!!

    Nice Compact Charger

    This is a nice compact travel charger I bought for my A6500. Love the folding plug. The charger is not much faster than using the USB cable but it's safer than charging internally. With two batteries I can continue to shoot while the 2nd battery is charging. But the indicator lights are goofy. When the lights go out you would expect that the battery is fully charged, Nope, you need to leave it for at least an hour longer per the instructions. Should have been included with the camera.

    Does What It's Supposed To

    Like the header says, this just does what it's supposed to. I would not say that it's much faster charging if you have a device that charges in camera, as I have had a a6000 and a A7ii but having this will allow you to charge multiple batteries, one in camera and one outside in this device, if you have multiple batteries. Its nice compact and easy to store away or to travel with. I use Sony products and would never trust my Sony gear with generic batteries or chargers. Its not worth the risk to my safety or the investments I've made in my gear. No brainer what ever the price you pay for it.

    Worth the extra money

    I went with all sony batteries and charger they just fit right and all products match. I like the sony better than the after market brands. Tried the after market and felt like the fit was off a bit and now all my batteries match up. Extra batteries are really good to have as the camera goes through batteries. Mirrorless cameras view finders are on the whole time the camera is on dslr uses a mirror so longer battery life on a dslr like canon but I love the mirrorless sony cameras more value for the money and I think they are future of digital cameras.

    Does what it supposed to do

    I think this charger is an over priced necessary evil. Sony wanted to put there system out as being cheaper than it's competitors but makes you buy a battery charger and additional batteries just to keep up. I carry this charger around and extra batteries in my bag just like an extra lens. mirrorless in general have he same problem with battery life so I'm not picking on Sony. i just wished they had changed me for the kit with the batter charger included. I would recommend this product to a friend only because they would need it since Sony didn't include it.
