      Great to be able to charge battery

      Cameras do not come with separate chargers anymore except the Canon point and shoot. Canon still ships some of their models with a compact charger. Sony does not. They want you to charge the battery while in the camera. So, you cannot use the camera while it is charging a battery. This is why this charger comes in handy.

          Without this extra item, batteries in my Sony RX100III have to be charged in camera with the attendant loss of the use of the camera. Problem solved.

              Ideal for the back battery charger. Now I alway have the extra charged and ready to go. No cords, just flip open the plug and insert the battery. 90 mins. later it's ready.

                      With the fold-in plug and the USB port, this charger makes for a compact (as the name suggests) and no nonsense approach to keeping a spare battery fresh for my recently acquired Sony RX100 III. A surprising bonus is the included adapter from US to European plug — great for people who travel across the Atlantic regularly.

                            Sony should have included a battery charger with the RX100 iii. Since they did not, this item is good to have. Charge a spare battery to keep the camera in action, without having to stop and charge a battery in the camera.

                                    Instead of having to charge my battery in-camera, now I can charge it in this charger on my desktop, while a second battery is in my camera ready to go. It was a real pain before, as I had to plug the camera in and swap batteries also anyway to keep them up. The USB port is a bonus for charging my Blackberry! Thanks, Rick

                                        I purchased this to use with the Watson batteries that run a Sony RX100 ii camera. A far better price than those outrageously priced by Sony.

                                        The charger is good and reliable.

                                        Great charger that avoids the need for connecting camera with cord through the side connector of the RX100M2 (with not so smart design of the plastic cover for that connector..). Also the side USB connector is a great plus for two devices charging at the same time!

                                        I purchased this charger to charge the Sony X battery. The charger works fine, no problems. The only negative thing about the charger is that it is slow. Takes a long time to charge the X battery.

                                                    Charges battery quickly. Cheaper than OEM. What's not to like?

                                                        Cameras do not come with separate chargers anymore except the Canon point and shoot. Canon still ships some of their models with a compact charger. Sony does not. They want you to charge the battery while in the camera. So, you cannot use the camera while it is charging a battery. This is why this charger comes in handy.

                                                          Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for NP-BX1 Battery:

                                                          Charges battery externally so you don't have to charge the battery in camera.
