    Worth every penny

    Unit works as listed on manufacturers' page. Color-coded operation status is helpful when in need to know how much time left for charging cycle.

    WARNING! SEE BELOW I have purchased two of these for a set of 4 Side Kicks. One broke completely with no lights so I replaced it. The replacement lasted several months but then died as well. When the second unit died I opened it up and removed the perf board to examine potential failure pointes. The male power plug pins that go into the wall jack have two flimsy springs attached on the back that the perf board touches. Those springs appeared to have been pushed down over time to the point where they no longer make contact with the perf board. I removed the springs and pulled them out so they extended further again. The unit is operating properly again. This is a failed design.
    WARNING!
    However I must caution anyone who would choose to follow this route. Make certain the unit is not plugged into anything when doing maintenance as it can lead to DEATH by electrocution. In general working on electrical devices should only be done by professionals.

        It dies after two weeks

        Comments about Bescor NMH-ATMX Charger with 4-pin XLR Connector:

        It successfully charged the first battery. The battery has not been used up, but the charger is dead already. There is no light (red/green)on the charger when connected to outlet.

        I left the charger connected to outlet for two weeks, it died after that. Ask for exchange.

            I've now had 5 of these chargers over the past 4 years. All have been purchased to charge my Lowell video light battery and none have laster longer than 9 months. I've had 1 battery and 5 chargers, you decide if these are worth $[$]-$[$]. At least B&H sells them cheaper than Bescor...kudos

                This was a replacement for an old charger that finally gave out after 7+ years. I like the charger because it automatically shuts down when charging is complete.

                I bought a video light in December with two battery packs and this charger. I have used it exactly three times before the blinking red light of death started. Called Bescor but because it was purchased four months ago I'm out of luck. This charger is a piece of junk and extremely overpriced. Wish I had seen the reviews for it. I only looked up the battery reviews never thought I had to worry about the charger.

                        Got it with the Nickel NMH Battery pack, good idea, unfortunately my friends unit stopped working, and mine started smoking while plugged in the socket. Its definately cheaply made and for its price rediculous, unfortunately no other charger is made for the 4 pin XLR NMH Battery pack. So if you want portability, build your own or deal with it. Disappointing! Its not rocket science to make a sturdy battery charger Bescor!

                                  Right out of the box the unit did not work, i.e.

                                  1. No power visible, i.e. Neither GREEN nor RED LED came on.
                                  2. When unit was shaken I could hear a loose internal plastic part rattling.

                                  Returned and awaiting a new replacement.

Charger never worked & overheated and when I called bescor for help they said its over the 90 day warranty, go buy a new one for [$]. Do not buy any bescor products they are cheap poorly made overpriced products with no customer service!

                                          What can I say, its a battery charger. Have not experienced any problems with it. Does charge fast.
