      First of all, I'm only giving this 4 stars, as I have only used it once. However, with that being said, it worked as any other battery charger but at a much cheaper price. As I am just starting out, I only own one battery for my new Sony video light that I will be using for photography, so I didn't need the more expensive dual charger, this one did the job, at a substantially lower price, we are talking like $70 at least. Thank you B&H, for selling quality products, and thank you to your customer service, for giving all options, even if they are the cheaper ones! :) I will be a repeat costumer!

      Good portable charger for emergency OVERNIGHT charges. Takes forever to give a full charge, literally overnight. Not recommended for fast charges, emergency back up only

              Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for L & M Series Batteries:

              I like this charger primarily because it allows me to charge batteries from the 12V cigarette outlet in my vehicle. It also works in 120 - 22V outlets in case I travel overseas. It comes with an adapter for EU / UK plugs. Features a colored LED to let you know when the battery is fully charged.
              As an added bonus, it will also charge USB devices at the same time do to the USB port.
              So now, while driving, I can charge my camera battery for the A77, AND my Sony RX100 and be ready to take lots of pictures when I get to my destination.
              Very cool.

                    I had bought this as a replacement for the factory charger for my A200. I was looking for something that was going to get the job done for the least amount of money. I got was I was looking for. This charges great. The only draw back is that the fit for my battery pack is tight and sometimes when I take the battery of the whe face plate comes off the charger. No big deal for me. The faceplate reattached easily. All in all it is a good product and would recommend the product.

                        Works great with my Sony A77 battery and I am able to charge the battery in the car when I'm on the go.
                        I lost my original charger and bought this one as a replacement. So far it has operated just as well as the orignal with the only drawback being the bulkyness.

                                  Works just as good as the more expensive charges. Small and easy

                                    NOW THAY"S WHAT I CALL A CONVENIENT PRODUCT!
                                    Instead of having to charge the battery on the bulky camcorder, I charge it on a, (what a surprise ;-)) charger.
                                    Furthermore, the top can be removed and replaced with a different battery socket, Now How Convenient Is That?!
                                    BTW, 2 thumbs down for Sony for not making a charger for their camcorders batterys, What's up with that?!

                                      Seems a little cheap but I guess you get what you paid for. Charged my batteries just fine though. nice that it comes with a car charger

                                      Good portable charger for emergency OVERNIGHT charges. Takes forever to give a full charge, literally overnight. Not recommended for fast charges, emergency back up only

                                        The best thing about it...it's small. I like the fact that I can always have a second battery charger in my camera bag as it doesn't take up hardly any space. I always travel with two chargers so that I don't have to get up in the middle of the night to swap out batteries that need to be charged for the next day. This guy is small and inexpensive. Worth the cost to have two chargers!

                                        This charger works like any other "smart charger" with an led to indicate when it's done. And it's the kind I prefer where the light changes from red to green not some arbitrary blinking pattern. The downside is that it seems like it was some kind of universal model charger and the face plate which connects to the battery comes off easier than the battery! Not really a big deal but kinda lame-o.
