    I bought this charger to keep us up and running on a weekend long shoot in the woods and it definitely did that. Being able to see the charge on a battery at a glance without plugging it in is an essential feature and obviously having two batteries charging at once was a life-saver. My only complain is a minor one. The plates for the battery do tend to slip out of place easily so you need to make sure the plate is firmly in place every time you attach a battery. The USB port was a great added bonus for iPhone charging. A fantastic product.

    The electronics on the charger works well, but the adapter plates for the LP-E6 Batteries don't align correctly and damage the battery contacts. The actual contact pins on the adapter plates are also very thin compared to the Canon genuine charger, hence make bad contact even if the alignment was right.

      Comments about Watson Duo LCD Charger with 2 LP-E6 Battery Plates:

      If you purchase addition plates, this is a very versitle charger. We are using the charger to charge three different types of batteries. It also cuts back when the batteries are fully charged. I have not run into any problems with it yet. I really don't expect to.

      It's a very good charger with a lot of different plates. I'm using 4 of these to charge my canon LpE6 batteries and my Gopro Batteries.
      You have to be carefull with the battery plates as they are not really sturdy.

        Comments about Watson Duo LCD Charger with 2 LP-E6 Battery Plates:

        I use this to charge Z-Finder Pro and IndiePro batteries for the Pocket Camera. Some have said they had problems aligning the plates, but I haven't had that issue at all. You do need to be careful aligning the tiny battery pins, but that's an issue with the batteries, not this charger. The batteries do fit very tight, so I gaffers taped the plates in place permanently.

        I like the Watson duo chargers because they're very affordable, seem to work as they should, and come with a lighter-style car cord. This one is certainly better than the Zacuto unit that came with the Z-Finder.

        The readouts aren't 100% accurate, but are close enough for most purposes.

                Charging batteries is a never ending chore, and this little charger let's me charge 2 at a time.I also like the fact that I can see the charge left in the batteries so I can prioritize the charging, or pick one with the most juice left...if it comes down to that "last shot" at the end of the day.I know the charge plate adapters are interchangeable but I bought a second charger. Now I have one charger dedicated to the DSLR batteries!...and one charger dedicated to the camcorder batteries!

                        Only used it once, but it charged the two batteries quickly and has an easy to read display. Has a charger for usb devices like a cell phone. Has two different cables; one that plugs into the wall and one for the car to use as a car charger. I really like the option to be able to charge two batteries in my car while on a shoot.

                          I bought this for my Canon Mark III 5D. Since I use the battery grip quite a bit, this is a very useful as it charges both batteries at the same time. It is fast and not too bulky. Pretty useful.

                                Although it is quite expensive, if you have multiple cameras and/or multiple batteries for each camera, this charger is essential. You will be able to rapidly charge two batteries at once, and after you have made the initial investment, you can buy adaptors for other cameras for several dollars as opposed to several times that price for a bulky charger. One caveat though - it will not always work with every battery. For example, it does not work with my Canon 70D OEM battery, although it works with the aftermarket battery for the 70D. No idea why that is - with the OEM battery, the charger could not detect the battery although the OEM charger that came with the camera works just fine for both batteries.

                                Never have to worry about not having a battery charged for your long trip of photography. Only works with Watson battery packs which is a downside but still very useful as a back up.

                                  Like the ability to charge two batteries at once as opposed to using the single charger that comes with the camera. Was disappointed with the unit initially as one side was not charging batteries. Looks like I need a different charging plate for my particular battery. (Canon 5D-Mark II)

                                  Love this dual charger. Gives me twice the boost when shooting weddings and all day events. Keeps me charged and prepared so I worry more about the shots and less about my battery life! Great investment!!!

                                  Unlike the Canon charger, the Watson Duo lets you know where you are in the charging process. It's easy to use and takes the guess work out of your time frame.
