        Nice product and is from the camera manufacturer. Only beef I have is that it would be nice to have a longer plug. Way too short.

          This allows you to charge the battery outside the camera. So you can charge a battery, while still using your camera. Or, you can charge two batteries at the same time, one in the UC-90, one in the camera.

          Comments about Olympus UC-90 USB Battery Charger for Tough TG-1 iHS Cameras:

          I use this as a backup battery charger. It's compact and lightweight. The USB connector slides into a pocket when the charger isn't in use. It does not have an AC capability, but Olympus makes another accessory, the F-3AC AC adapter, that gives a good AC work around. So far, I'm very pleased with this product.

                Comments about Olympus UC-90 USB Battery Charger for Tough TG-1 iHS Cameras:

                Now first of all it's already bad that Olympus didn't build its TG1 without a charger like Canon does, i.e. a small battery charger with collapsible AC blades which connects directly into the wall socket. It forces you instead to charge the battery while in the camera using a cumbersome connection of 2 wires and a voltage converter (provided in the box). This means you can't use the camera while the battery is charging and if you want the 'luxury' of having two batteries charged, you need to keep the camera out of use for at least 4 hours.
                So one decides to spend an additional 60 dollars (about 15% of the cost of the camera) just to buy this charger only to discover that it doesn't connect to the wall socket but has only a USB cable which forces you to still go around with the voltage converter and an additional cable to plug into the wall. Basically you still need 3 tools to charge the battery (although now outside the camera) and these 3 tools put together are much bulkier than the camera itself!!!! Shame on you Olympus for being so stingy and designing products like this.
                And Bhphoto please indicate in the description that this charger has only a USB plug!!!

                  Bought this charger so I wouldn't have to charge the battery in the camera while overseas. It worked great!

                  I really wish it had an AC plug built in to the unit, and wasn't just for USB charging. But I brought the AC plug-in unit that came with the camera (also lightweight and compact) so it wasn't that big of an issue.
