      I purchased this power charger as part of my husband's Christmas gift, along with a FLIP video camera. It's a nice compact size and the prongs fold in for easy travel or storage. One thing I'm not sure about - although it does work well - is the way the camera connects to the charger, via the usb port. Seems like it would be a bit unstable if the camera wasn't supported on a hard surface. Now the charger actually worked without a hitch, just appears to be a rather odd way to connect to the camera. I'm glad I bought this wall charger.

      good

      good for charging on the go. Problem is the USB pot is on the bottom and is only useful for a wall socket.

          I used to charge my Flip using USB. That took way too long, and when the computer went into sleep mode, it stopped charging the Flip. I purchased this power adapter and now I can charge quickly all the time without the need of a computer.

            Really enjoying this product. Now can charge anywhere, any time. Don't need to be tied down to the computer. Even though it's a weird design, wherein the Flip is kind of hanging in mid air, it's a tight grip, so it's safe. Just keep it way from the kiddies.

              Excellent product. I would rather charge it in the wall than on my computer. It takes too long doing by computer and my computer shuts down after 5 minutes if not in use.

              Comments about Flip Video Power Adapter:

              I got this to remove the need to charge off a computer - it works great, I only have two small issues.

              1) I wish it would charge the battery by itself - like some camera adapters, just a spot for the battery, no need to hook the camera up. Instead, you plug the camera into this, and this to the wall. Works great, just less convenient than I'd hoped. Being able to charge a second battery while using the camera would be nice.

              2) It does not play nicely with some (or all?) USB extension cables. I thougt I had a bad battery until I tried plugging the Flip cam straight into the charger - once I did that, it worked fine - not sure if it was my cable or what.

              Other than that, this thing works just as advertised, and lets you charge the Flip wherever there's an outlet.

                  When pluging the Flip Video into the the Power Adapter the Flip Video screen is facing the wall and can not ve viewed. The screen shows the progress of the charge. Whoever designed the charger did not see the Flip Video unit it was going to be used with.

                    The charger is great for saving on the amount of time it takes to recharge the battery of a Flip camera. Charging using a USB connection on a computer is slower, and it requires that you keep making sure the computer doesn't go to sleep. I love this little charger.

                              This is not the greatest design. Unlike chargers for other cameras you plug the entire camera into this. With the Flip hanging from the charger rigidly it seems like a lot of stress is placed on the USB arm. I will probably use this with an extension cord so the camera can rest on a surface or not use it at all and charge the camera from the computer.

                                              As you know, the Flip video camera proved to be a popular and easily carried video camera, but it is going out of production. Get all the accesories you might need now before they go out of stock. I find it easier to recharge the Flip this way rather than using your computer.

                                                charges rechargeable battery pack for flip camera.
                                                somewhat difficult to get the camera to remain on the charger as it was designed for a side plug in and this style of camera must plug in on the top

                                                  I bought this when I bought the flip battery pack, it works really well charging it. I recommend buying the usb extension cords to use with it though, because just connecting it to the flips usb connector didn't feel very sturdy to me, it just hung there.

                                                    I use this product to charge my 2hr Flip HD recorder. I record panels and speeches at conventions and I need a well charged camera before a panel starts to capture a quality video. This does the job and I have not had any problems.
