    I purchased this product to recharge my battery for the Canon 40D (the original worked fine until destroyed in a house fire.) I had bought an off-brand "universal" charger at a local electronics store first as a replacement, but it was confusing and ended up not working with my battery, so I returned it and bought this.

    This particular product is easy to use and fits perfectly with my battery. I am pleased with the quick recharge time. I have not had any difficulties with it and have used this model for four months now. I would strongly recommend using this charger for compatible Canon batteries instead of a generic one, because the generic one ended up being a big hassle for me. The extra few dollars spent on this was worth it.

    Fine but for the dangle

    I'd recommend it because I don't know of another one for the job, but if you travel abroad and need to use adaptors, the charger hangs awkwardly from the wall, often unplugging itself. ...Read complete review

    I'd recommend it because I don't know of another one for the job, but if you travel abroad and need to use adaptors, the charger hangs awkwardly from the wall, often unplugging itself. It must be propped up with a book or a bag or something. Otherwise, it works fine.

                      I have a Canon battery grip (holds two batteries) so I recently purchased a 2nd charger so that both batteries could recharge simultaneously. I find the charger to be quite rugged. The indicator light gives a clear indication of recharge status.

                                I have two Canon cameras that use the BP511/511A battery. One of them (20D) came with this charger, the other (Pro 90IS) charges through the camera. The latter is much slower than when using this charger, so I bought it to keep one with each camera.

                                  This product is great. It consistently works well. I have had one for quite some time, needed another since I left my last charging at a wedding I shot. Generally the no long cord is great but occasionally it can be a pain if you are plugging it into a power strip etc and the charger itself takes up 3 spots.

                                      Great portable charger. I use it to keep my batteries topped off when covering an event. But it is easy to forget when you are working a job.

                                        I have two of these. This last one replaces the one I accidently left someplace in Prague. They are well made and work great. I especially like the LED indicator that lets you know how you are progressing with the battery charge and when the charge is completed.

                                            Charges my batteries quickly and unlike some of the cheaper ones, it doesnt overcharge...worth the $$$.

                                            I only needed a new one because I finally lost the one that came with my 40D while traveling.

                                              The charger was just what I needed to replace the one I had lost. Easy to use and with a relatively quick overall charge. Thanks!
