    This is a rapid charger of the Nikon EN-EL5 battery. However, it is very bulky. The long electrical cord that comes with it seems totally unnecessary making it difficult to carry this charger in a shirt or coat pocket. Nikon should redesign this charger and do what Canon did for their PowerShot Elph digital cameras. Canon uses a much smaller charger platform without a cord. The charger plugs directly into the wall. The plug is foldable (when charging is done), thus, enabling one to carry the charger in one's pocket.

    A main virtue of a point and shoot camera is its portability. Nikon's charger is large, using a cord (instead of a built in plug) and is neither user nor travel friendly. An important concern, because in my experience, Nikon camera batteries, even when simply stored in the camera, drain more qickly than is the case for other makes. such as Lumix cameras.

        I use to charge up my Nikon digital camera battery by plugging the camera into an electrical outlet overnight because it took so long to charge. Now I find that my battery charges up in no time with this battery charger.

          Works as expected! No surprises.
          (Should be supplied access. with Nikon P520 camera. Charging via USB in camera, as offered, is not practical for a travel type camera, hence this purchase.)

          Not a "con" levelled at Nikon, particularly BUT it's about time:-
          1) Li packs were standardised for pack voltage, capacity and connector.
          2) Chargers had a std. indication of power on, charging and end-of-charge status.
          3)AC line connections were standardised.
          Get sick of travelling with a day pack that resembles a "power grid station" of chargers and spare batteries. n.b. This is becoming more a nuisance now with the concern airlines have with Li packs in hold luggage.

            Comments about Nikon MH-61 Battery Charger:

            The Nikon P510, that I bought for my wife, came with a USB four hour charger. This is fine if you have only one battery, but if you want to have a spare, then you would do better to be able to charge the spare battery without the camera. The MH-61 allows charging the spare without the camera and gives you the flexibility that you want a spare for. The power cord that comes with these cameras is use full as an AC power supply, and works very well as such. But a spare battery and charger makes for more independence.

                We lost our original battery charger when we recently moved out of state. With a vacation coming up quick, we found this online and were amazed by the ease of order, the cost and the speedy delivery. The charger works perfect for our needs. Now if we only had the spare battery that we left in our lost charger. Woe, woe.

                  Comments about Nikon MH-61 Battery Charger:

                  My order to Australia arrived FAST! Thanks B&H! I'm very happy with the Nikon MH-61 battery charger. Using my P510 camera to charge batteries was painfully slow and the last thing I need is my camera out of action for hours on end just to recharge one battery! This charger is an absolute MUST! It takes less than half the time to recharge a battery and I'm happily surprised by the length of electrical cable it has, for me that's handy when space is limited around power points in the home. Living in Australia, I needed a plug adaptor for this too, so I ordered the Watson APK International Adaptor Plug kit. That works great with the charger and was well worth including in my order. This was a great buy at a great price with great service. Thank you again B&H.

                    I had lost my charger and was looking for a new one to replace it. I ended up finding one here, and it was even cheaper than buying one from Nikon! Its a great charger and charges pretty fast too. and they were super fast on delivery. I was surprised to see it in my mailbox way sooner than the 10 days for regular shipping!

                        My Sony H7 came with a battery charger that had a fold in plug - very convenient. This charger cost extra and came with a long, cumbersome power cord that makes traveling (which is my primary need for a charger) with it a hassel.

                        Other reviews have also mentioned this problem. I hope Nikon takes note and fixes this problem.

                            Wanted name brand charger for my Nikon and did not want universal charger with no plug, plus handling charge plus gouger rate shipping. Found just what I needed from B&H at an excellent price, new in box, with plug, plus battery - found everything i needed with no hassle or claim that it is too much trouble to stock all this stuff for my camera. Service is top notch. Shipping was super fast and reasonably priced - B&H is fantastic and i will definitely be buying from them again. Have already recommended them to my friends.

                              To recharge Nikon Batteries need to use Nikon equipment and this is it.

                                    As expected from a Nikon product, the charger works great for the charging of the battery. The only thing more I could wish for would be for it to work in the car cigarette lighter also.

                                      I had a "generic" battery charger with "generic" batteries for my Nikon P6000. They just don't perform as long as the real thing, so I bought the real thing!
