      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!

      This charger does the job and is relatively compact in size. It consists of a base unit and an adapter for the particular battery size. The adapter slides out, whether you want to or not, every time you try to remove the battery. Overall build is mediocre. It's still worth having as an extra charger which is more compact and portable than the better built Nikon charger.

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

        I arrived on a business/vacation trip and discovered that I forgot to pack my camera's battery charger. It was an amateur mistake but it did happen and I was concerned that I could drain the battery before completing the trip. I didn't want to buy a duplicate charger - so, I was delighted when I found this compact charger.

        The charger works as advertised. The construction is solid and the unit did not become warm during the charging process.

        I like that the unit comes with a DC car adapter and has USB ports for charging USB devices.

        The charger takes up less space, and weighs less, than the charger that comes with my camera. I will add this nifty solution to my camera bag.

              Great choice for light travellers.
              Instead of taking the original bulky charger.
              No difference on charging time.

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

                The charger that came with my Nikon AW 110 was bulky and had an even bulkier AC cable. The Nikon equipment was very well built but is almost twice the size of this unit. The Nikon unit takes a fair amount of baggage space, something that is at a premium when I travel. This Watson unit is not as well built. I am certain that reviews will appear that say it is "flimsy". However, it is well enough built for the task. It should travel well if packed with even modest care ... maybe wrap a pair or socks or a T-shirt around it :) A very conservative person might buy two and bring them both. Together, they take less space than the Nikon charger .. and you could charge two batteries at a time. And this is a very inexpensive purchase.

                One additional feature I like ... When the battery charge is not complete, a RED light shines. When it is fully charged, a GREEN light shines. This is just easier (for me) to react to than a flashing vs. a non-flashing light.

                In summary ... This is good travel companion ! This unit is about as compact as it can be. It is not much larger than the battery. It is self contained ... no cords; the AC plug folds out of the body of the charger. It also comes with an adapter that makes it possible to charge by plugging into a car cigarette lighter. I have not tried this but it could be a plus out in the field ... say on a safari.

                I would definitely recommend this to a friend. When I saw that there was a version that worked for my EN-EL15 batteries I did not hesitate for a second.

                            Plain and simple, for the price, it's nice.

                            Sure it isn't as nice as its much more expensive brother, but you get what you pay for.

                            Me personally?

                            I have two of the models that have two battery slots, and two screens for monitoring.
                            I wouldn't bring this to a wedding or any event simply because I can't see where my battery percentage is. If it were just photo related batteries, sure, but I do a lot of video and need to know when exactly to change batteries.

                            Get it for vacation!

                                    Tried this when I dropped and broke my Nikon batter charger. Works fine, and seems to charge at a similar rate to the original Nikon version. The only small con is the tray that holds the battery slides out (not sure why) when one tries to remove the battery. On the plus side, it comes with a car power port plug--a pleasant surprise and makes things easier on the road.

                                        I ran out the door on vacation and left my D7000 Nikon charger behind! While on the road, I ordered the Pearstone charger and had it shipped ahead of me. Thanks to B&H's reliable shipping, it was there when promised.This charger is a much better travel charger than Nikon's. Besides being smaller and thinner than the Nikon, making it easy to fit in my camera bag, the wall power prongs fold into the body. It comes with a European adapter, unlike Nikon. And to top that off, it comes with a car power adapter so you can recharge while driving to your next location, also unlike the Nikon. All this for less than half the price of the Nikon.As for another reviewer's comment about the unit being cheaply built, I am an electrical engineer and I disagree. It is a well built, commercial unit. Just don't use it in the rain! As for the adaptor plate slipping off when you remove the charged battery, the instructions direct you to slip the battery into the adaptor and then plug that into the charger body. That's what is supposed to happen. If you don't like that, then tape the adaptor to the charger and slide the battery into both of them.For [$] you can buy another adapter plate for another item in your camera bag. How can you complain? I highly recommend this item without reservations.

                                                I have only used the charger to charge Pearstone brand batteries and it works as it should. I needed a charger that I could use while in a car for D800 batteries. It's great! I also bought the small AC "wall wart" to use with it but I guess I could just have used an extension cord. Some have said that the adapter comes off when removing the battery but I haven't had that problem. I am also going to get the adapter for D200 batteries. I really like the charger and for the price you can't go wrong.
