            Not much to say except. Yep it works great.
            Charge time just over 2 hours for the NP-FW50 from flat.
            LCD dial lets you know how much charge there is.

                Given how quickly the Sony cameras chew up batteries, this is a fantastic alternative to waiting to charge batteries in sequence. Wonderful!

                  I bought this product not knowing about Watson. Normally, I am very weary of after market items. Well, the display on this is nice. It gives you an accurate reading of current status.

                  I also bought a few of the add-ons that clip into the unit. So, now I just need one charger for my Sony camera and Canon. The add-ons are very inexpensive. It's a strange business model, but an honest one. Normally, companies will up charge the heck out of these things to keep the profit up. Not so here.

                  It's a solid unit that charges in less time. I love it an will be buying more add-ons as I detest having to have three charges for all of my equipment. You can also mix and match while charging. Cool...

                      Seems like a solid charger so far. I really like the lit LCD screen that shows how much each battery has charged. Having a USB output on the side for charging other devices at the same time is great to have, as is the included car charging adapter. Highly recommended.

                        If you have a NEX series or the Alpha 7 or 7r this is a must have battery charger. Charges two batteries in half the time you can through the camera and has multiple hook ups. Comes with AC power cable, car plug and also has a USB plug incase you can't find power at the other two. Just awesome!

                            This charger is wonderful but has one flaw.The adapter plates do not click well into place and easily come loose when taking the battery off.Otherwise it seems to charge the batteries well.Big bonus for the complementary 12/24V car cable and the USB charging option.

                              Love this charger! This charger can adapt to several different batteries (requires purchase of adapters)however, I only use it for my camera. I also picked up a spare battery and the charger displays the charge level of each one independently. Takes the guess work out of knowing exactly what the charge level is in case you have to remove your battery prior to full charge.
