    I bought this to accompany my Canon Vixia HF10 camcorder, specifically for an overseas trip. The camcorder came with an adapter/charger which connected to the camera for external powering or charging the batteries on camera, but you can't use the camera and charge simultaneously using the supplied charger.

    The batteries used on the HF10 and its successor is usually the 809, which has very limited runtime. For use at a social event or other place where AC is available, the CG-800 allows you to leapfrog the batteries, one running while one charges. It also makes for much lighter traveling and stows easily in a camera bag, since it has no cord. Its plug-in prongs fold simply into the body, and the battery attaches easily.

    It also is compatible with overseas power. I simply attached a European style outlet adapter, and it worked perfectly, recognizing the change to 220/50HZ. Some countries catering to US tourists have a few US type outlets in the hotel rooms, but they are at a premium when traveling with a family so it's nice be able to use local power.

    There is an amber light indicating the attached battery is charging properly. This light turns green to indicate charging done. This is handy, but some type of level indicating bar would have been useful.

    While this takes the place of the corded adapter, it would have been nice to have a terminal allowing it to power a camera via an adapter cable.

    I didn't get around to timing the charge cycle, but it was probably well under two hours for an 809 battery. On our foreign trip this was never a problem.

    Having not faced a surge, I have no idea whether or not this is surge protected. Perhaps that was not a design consideration because this is not intended for connection to a camera.

    Ok, this is usefull so I don't HAVE TO use my camcorder just to recharge batteries...
    But it could have a power cord... If you try to put a big battery in this, and then stick it to a wall, you're going to see the whole thing falling to the ground... better use in a floor plug.

    And it doesn't show the "charging" light with batteries that are not canon, like pearstone.....

            from San Marcos, Ca

            Comments about Canon CG-800 Charger Adapter:

            It works good. I tried saving money by buying the Watson charger for $19.99 and it quit working a few weeks later so I returned it for another and that one quit too. So I returned that one too and exchanged it for this one and have had no problems. I should have bought this one in the first olace.

                        I picked up an after market charger for my Canon BP-819 battery packs and it would not charge the extended capacity batteries so I thought they might be bad. After using the cable directly to the video camera to successfully charge them I ordered this Canon charger and it has charged them with no problems at all. It was worth the extra few dollars to charge a couple of battery packs costing way more than the difference in charger costs. I won't go cheap again.

                          Great little battery charger for my new Canon XA20 camcorder. This should be included with the camcorder rather than the plug-in type charger. The plug-in type requires you to charge the battery through the camcorder (with the battery attached), meaning that you can't shoot and charge at the same time. No fault on B&H's part, this is a marketing ploy from Canon. Otherwise, this is a great charger that makes it easy to charge one battery while shooting with another.

                                        Comments about Canon CG-800 Charger Adapter:

                                        I bought an aftermarket universal battery charger that was suppose to work with the Cannon batteries. It showed that it had charged the battery but when the battery was attached to the video camera it showed that the battery required a charge. Lost a whole day of live action video. I thought that I needed a new battery.
                                        After buying this product I charged the same battery and found that this charger fully charged the batteries. I have not lost any action videos since I started using this charger due to uncharged batteries.
                                        I highly recommend buying this charger over a universal charger.

                                            Product lights up when you first put a battery in and it appears to charge, but then the light goes out and nothing happens. Defective product out of the box, am returning it.
