      Comments about Canon CG-700 Battery Charger:

      I use this to keep spare batteries charged. It seems well built and works well with the Canon batteries. It is more convenient than charging batteries through the camera (HF R52).

          This should be included with the Canon Vixia HD video cameras. Charging the battery on the camera is very limiting. This works great.

            Comments about Canon CG-700 Battery Charger:

            My camcorder has "typical recording times" of 55 minutes for the standard battery and 85 minutes for the high capacity battery, so for many events it is best to have 2 batteries. If you are travelling and need to recharge batteries for the next day, you will want to recharge quickly. Recharging these 2 batteries using only the camcorder takes 13 hours 20 minutes. Using this charger only, takes 8 hours 55 minutes. Charge 1 in the camera and 1 in the charger, and you are done in 5 hours 35 minutes. That's 6 hours 45 minutes faster than using the camcorder alone!

                Bought as an additional charger for Canon Vixia HF R32 so we wouldn't have to use the camera as the charger. Need to use more times to feel confident but so far no issues.

                    Comments about Canon CG-700 Battery Charger:

                    I'm used to a camera battery charger that you simply slap in the battery, shove it into the wall socket and forget till whenever. Bought this charger because I don't want to always charge the battery using my camera as the charger. This charger is specifically made for the "Intelligent Batteries" used on the latest Canon Video Cameras so I guess this charger needed to be "special" too. As simple as this charger appears, the wordy instruction sheet for it really has some noteworthy cautions, and warnings that need to be observed or you'll probably end up sending it back because it doesn't charge properly if it charges at all. So read the instructions carefully and hope that you remember the sequence of Do's and Don'ts so you don't fry this expensive little box. Hey, I'm just sayin . . .

                          Works okay. Wish it just had the plug built into the charger, rather than separate cord which takes up more room.
