  • Charging Time: Approx. 1.6-2.4 hr
  • LED Charging Indicators
  • Over-Voltage and Surge Protection
  • Reverse Polarity Protection
  • Two Individual Charging Channels

  • Batteries Rechargeable up to 1000 Times
  • Includes AC and DC Adapters

This Dual Rapid Charger from Watson works with 3V CR123A or CR2 rechargeable lithium batteries, and includes two of the 400mAh CR123A type. Individually-monitored channels allow you to charge one battery or two simultaneously, and you can even charge a CR123A and a CR2 together. Charging time is about 2.4 hr for 1-2 CR123A batteries, or 1.6 hr for 1- 2 CR2 batteries. LED indicators are red when charging is in-progress and flash in blue when it's 80-90% done. They will change to a constant blue when charging is 90-100% complete, and will flash red and blue to alert you to a battery error.

Over-voltage protection keeps the charger from outputting too much power, and surge protection shields it from input power overload. Reverse polarity protection prevents damage if batteries are inserted incorrectly. The Dual Rapid charger accepts 100-240VAC input power for use all over the world. An AC and DC adapter are included for use at-home, in the office or on-the-go.

Both the included CR123A and optional CR2 batteries are rechargeable up to 1000 times and feature excellent high-load performance, which helps prevent memory effect.

      Comments about Watson Dual Rapid Charger for 3V CR123A and CR2 Lithium Batteries with 2 CR123A Batteries:

      This came with nothing to really be disappointed about it comes with car and wall plugs which is great. I got the one with 123 batteries and only one would charge but I wanted it for CR2 batteries so wasn't a big deal. But because of that it got 4 stars.

            I use this for my Nikon F6 camera body. The replacement batteries (cr123) are $ dollars a pair at @. The life span is about 6 rolls of 36exp. I have shot 4 rolls and still have good power levels. I also bought a spare batteries. I do not have any compliants.

              Got this to recharge the batteries for my scuba diving light. Works as advertised. Definitely worth it since CR123A batteries can be pricey and hard to find. Especially if you're out of the country on a dive trip. I would highly recommend this because the normal burn time for CR123A batteries is usually only an hour or 2. After a few charges this product has already paid for itself. No more wasting money on new batteries all the time.

                  I use these batteries in my Fujifilm GA645W and it is saving me a lot of money that I would be spending on new batteries. Wish I had bought it sooner.

                                  This worked great!!!
                                  I needed it for a flashlight that takes CR123A batteries. It was eating them up. So I tried this charger and batteries that come with it, and bingo!! I have a super bright light, and no more expensive 3V Lithium batteries to buy.
                                  Great product for me, great price and fast service.

                                    Works as it should. It is very well made. The two batteries that came with were wrapped too well, almost took the label of one batteries.

                                      Using the batteries and charger for ny Nikon N80 film SLR, durable and reliable chargers... very compact and good build quality...

                                      Batteries in the pack comes pre-charged... A very good small investment to save on recurring cost on costly supply of CR123s...

                                          I use these instead of the disposable batteries for my LED flashlights. They don't last as long as disposable but they work fine without hurting the wallet.

                                            just connect relatively easily, wait a couple of hours, unplug it and presto ready to use. it saves me space from my camera bag, light weight.
