    I trust only Sony OEM with my Sony Li-ion batteries. The charger is intuitive and the display informative. It is a quality charger with useful accessories (attachment cables).

    The only reason I give it 4-stars instead of 5 is due to the charger only operating in series rather than parallel (simultaneous charging of both bays).

    I bought this as I thought it would be a faster way to charge the Sony L-Series compatible batteries that come standard with some of the Digital Juice equipment (lights, monitors). However:

    - It does not charge two batteries at once; it does one first, then the second one

    - Unless they are OEM InfoLithium batteries, it doesn't give you any readout about time remaining to charge or how much charge the batteries hold. You'll just get the LED indicator when the battery is full.

    - It takes between 24-36 hours to fully charge an empty NP-F960 6000mah type battery.

    None of that is really a fault of the charger, though. If you're using OEM Sony batteries it might be more useful. (Still can't charge more than one at a time, though.)

    If (like me) you were looking for a quicker way to charge multiple Sony-compatible batteries, you're no better off than just using the cheap chargers that came with the equipment.

    Comments about Sony AC Adapter and Twin Charger For L-Series Batteries:

    I have multiple batteries and this does the trick. It does not charge two batteries simultaneously, but looks like a very well made piece of gear to have. I have not used it in the field yet, and it is a bit on the large side, so I will have to plan for that. I would use it in the field to run my FS 100 direct from AC current, which was my original use for this AC adapter.

        Comments about Sony AC Adapter and Twin Charger For L-Series Batteries:

        Charges my sony and non-sony batteries fine. I like the normal charge/full charge selection. It looks like it'll charge two batteries at one time, but it doesn't. It will only charge the 2nd battery once the first is finished. Not a huge problem, just not what one would expect. Nice for overnight charging though. No need to hover over the charger to switch batteries.

        Also the charger tests the batteries for charge level and charging time remaining. This feature only seems to work on Sony batteries though.

          The charger works perfectly. It doesn't charge two at the same time, but I don't need that function. If you do you will need to look elsewhere.

            I recently purchased a new Sony videocamera that did not come with a battery charger. Most new Sony cameras no longer come with a charger. I have an older charger but this one is much finer build and has a digital readout for status on both batteries at once. For the price, I highly recommend this product versus charging the battery in the camera. Plus, you now have an excellent and robust AC adapter when you need it.

                    I have yet to use it in the field, but I plugged it in and it runs my SONY Z1U and charges batteries. It also looks and feels more robust that the original AC adapter/charger my camera came with. Also it's much cheaper than the original adapter.

                      This dual charger is everything I've come to expect from Sony: the highest quality construction and excellent performance. It maximizes the performance of Sony L-Series batteries, and charges them more quickly than the old L-Series charger that I had. It's also small enough to pack easily in my video camera gear bag.

                        Seems like a well made unit and the electronics seem well designed, but It doens't do quite what I as hoping. It will only charge 2 batteries simultaniously in "full charge mode" as opposed to normal and it only charges simultaniously after the first battery you instered reaches "normal charge" also the charge time is really long on my non sony batteries. with the 570 2600 mAh batteries is took all day (8 hours) to do both batteries from 20% charge. The good news is a slow charge means the batteries last longer, and I have no doubt it would be quicker with infolithium batteries as I was WAY off the chrage times it suggested I might get in the manual. Just be advised that this will not chrage 2 batteries simultaniously as you think it might at first glance and Im sure it will serve you well.

                            Sony cameras have treated me well for 2 decades.
                            B&H has been with me for all that time.
                            My only question is WHY ???
                            Why have I never purchased a stand-alone charger?
                            Well, now that I have the Sony L-Series Twin
                            Charger, I dont have to drag my Cameras out
                            everytime my batteries look a little weak.
                            Do yourself a favor and spend or invest in a
                            Sony stand-alone charger. Makes my life easier!

                              Great build and quality for this charger!!
                              Looks and feels so professional.
                              Charges my batteries fast and it display all the informations needed…
                              Love it.
                              One problem though,poor manual (HATE that huge folding paper in a million languages) and a lot of cables that don't fit my Sony HXR-MC 2000U.

                                Needed a Power supply for a Sony NEX FS100, This unit doubles as a dual battery charger conditioner.

                                    Great product from Sony as you would expect. It gets four stars because of no back light, and doesn't charge simutaniously. Other than that I couldn't be happier. DC charger is a huge plus!!

                                          Comments about Sony AC Adapter and Twin Charger For L-Series Batteries:

                                          I bought this as I thought it would be a faster way to charge the Sony L-Series compatible batteries that come standard with some of the Digital Juice equipment (lights, monitors). However:

                                          - It does not charge two batteries at once; it does one first, then the second one

                                          - Unless they are OEM InfoLithium batteries, it doesn't give you any readout about time remaining to charge or how much charge the batteries hold. You'll just get the LED indicator when the battery is full.

                                          - It takes between 24-36 hours to fully charge an empty NP-F960 6000mah type battery.

                                          None of that is really a fault of the charger, though. If you're using OEM Sony batteries it might be more useful. (Still can't charge more than one at a time, though.)

                                          If (like me) you were looking for a quicker way to charge multiple Sony-compatible batteries, you're no better off than just using the cheap chargers that came with the equipment.
