    I cannot believe that this was the only way I could carry one charger when travelling with multiple cameras!

    I have two Nikon cameras, a D7000 and an AW100 as well as an old Olympus SW1030 so I bought the charger for the EN-EL15 battery and two small adapter plates for the other batteries (EL12 and Li-70B). All up the Pearstone set-up is MUCH better than carrying three chargers and the many many meters of associated cable which Nikon is good enough to provide with their chargers.

    I estimate the Pearstone set-up is about 1/3 the volume for the camera chargers alone (even if you decide to carry the Pearstone car charger cable) and my travel mass has dropped from 505g to 165g. AND I can use it to charge USB devices (eg. iPhone, GPS tracker) most people will carry a laptop but if you don't then it will save you from carrying a USB charger as well.

    I consider the quality to be very good, the mouldings are finished well and the car charger cable and connector looks excellent. The unit is light but it has survived one trip to Chile already and I have no real concerns about durability. I have seen other people concerned about the strength of the retaining tabs for their batteries on the adapter plates but for my batteries the adapter design is fine and perfectly strong enough so this is not an issue an issue for me.

    The masses are...
    85g = Main Charger with an adaptor plate fitted
    15g = Each Extra adaptor plate
    15g = Euro Wall Socket adaptor
    35g = Car Charger plug and cable

    I still use the OEM chargers at home (in case they have some extra brains that the Pearstone does not) but now they can just stay in place in the charging area and the Pearstone stays in the backpack so there is less risk of forgetting something on a trip.

    The only minor down side (for me as I am an Aussie) was that I had to buy a separate US to AU wall socket adaptor for Australia but the US and Euro plugs will cover most of the rest of the world.

    Once again, I had to really dig to find this product and I don't think any other company offers anywhere near as good a solution - if you travel with multiple cameras (and thus chargers) then this product is for you!

    I liked the idea of using this charger to charge three different batteries so I bought the charger and two additional battery plates for my other batteries. I sent the first one back because it wouldn't work on AC power unless you jiggled the unit just right. B&H happily sent me a new one which had the same problem. So I cracked the case and sure enough the plastic moulding around the AC plug ran all the way down one side of one of the pins on the plug. This caused intermittent power connection if you jiggled it just right. So I used an xacto knife to scrape off the excess plastic and tried it. Perfect. No jiggling.

    Now I am pleased with this product but I don't think I should have to repair a brand new product due to manufacturing flaws. I don't think this occurs with all of these items and YMMV!!

    Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for EN-EL15 Battery:

    Got this as an extra charger for my fleet of EN-EL15's. Seems to work OK and was a LOT CHEAPER than Nikon. Others have said that the base plate need to be removed to get the battery out but I don't find this to be the case. I suspect the weak point in the design will be the plastic tab in the base used to capture/hold the battery, but, for me, it only does light duty so I will be cautious with it.

        I bought it for a trip to Europe.
        Works great, small enough to have in my camera bag. The European plug came very handy.
        It's all plastic so I would be careful to how and where I store it.
        Charging is slow but I just left it over night.
        For the price it is a great product.

              Very efficient charger. Compact and comes with a cigarette lighter adapter for the car. It isn't as solidly built as the Nikon model. It has a snap on adapter for the specific battery you are using and it is easy to detach the adapter when you pull the battery out. I had to put some tape in it to secure it. Other than that it works great

                Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for EN-EL15 Battery:

                Having arrived in NYC for a photography workshop, I discovered that while I had brought the battery case of the Nikon D810 charger with me, I had left the separate adapter in the power strip at home. So, B&H to the rescue with this Watson charger which is designed to ensure the impossibility of leaving the adapter behind. The plug is built into the base of the unit. It is also more compact than the Nikon charger and weighs less. I do have one reservation about the design of this charger, however. It has two separate parts, the base with the charging unit and a case or holder into which the battery slides. Once the battery is charged, you slip the case/holder out of the unit to release it. This creates a completely different opportunity for a necessary part to be lost or left behind.

                  I got the Watson so I don't have to carry 2 battery chargers w/ me. With the Watson & appropriate adapter, I can charge my Nikon & Panasonic batteries. The Watson charges both batteries as expected.

                  The minor issue is when you try to remove the Nikon battery, the battery adapter also slips off the Watson charger w/ the battery still attached to the adapter. You'll have to hold the adapter while sliding the Nikon batter off or just slide the adapter back into place once the Nikon battery is removed. This problem does not exist for the anasonic battery.

                              Works great as a replacement or as a second charger. Love that it has an available 12volt adapter included where the Nikon doesn't.

                              Wish it would have a better charge indicator. On board LEDs will light up solid red as it is charging, then turn solid green once complete.

                              With different plates available, probably the last charger you will need.

                                  I liked the idea of using this charger to charge three different batteries so I bought the charger and two additional battery plates for my other batteries. I sent the first one back because it wouldn't work on AC power unless you jiggled the unit just right. B&H happily sent me a new one which had the same problem. So I cracked the case and sure enough the plastic moulding around the AC plug ran all the way down one side of one of the pins on the plug. This caused intermittent power connection if you jiggled it just right. So I used an xacto knife to scrape off the excess plastic and tried it. Perfect. No jiggling.

                                  Now I am pleased with this product but I don't think I should have to repair a brand new product due to manufacturing flaws. I don't think this occurs with all of these items and YMMV!!

                                      this is a great item. takes up very little camera bag space. Perfect for traveling as it works in the car and plugged in in a hotel room.

                                          It won't stay tight in the electrical socket. Tried them all in the RV as well as an ext. cord. Just could not get electrical contact to be consistent and charge the battery.

                                                  Good as an extra charger to keep in your vehicle, as I do. Remains in the socket with no problems and has bright red/green lights to let you know battery is charged. Battery is locked in (great feature) so it does not fall out while charging, and your are driving. Charging time is about the same as a standard battery charger, the best part is the battery remains in the charger.

                                                    It's light weight, compact, and works great. I love it that it comes with a car charger too, what a bonus that is. It really is great for the money, I like mine a lot. It seems to charge quickly too. It's a must own.
