      So far this charger has performed flawlessly. It charges the batteries in about half the time of charging them inside the GoPro. The only thing I can say that is only but a very minor annoyance is that the battery does not fit as snugly as I would like inside the interface bracket. That being said, I have not had a single problem with the battery staying in contact with the charging pins.

      I bought this charger to handle both my GoPro batteries as well as Nikon batteries with an alternate adapter plate. The initial unit I received would power on but never go into charge mode (Red LED). The replacement unit would only switch modes after fiddling with the battery on the unit, the fit and interface to the battery is just not reliable. The interchangeable battery plates have a similar poor fit. Granted this unit is inexpensive, but its no where near the quality of a factory accessory. You get what you pay for.

                This is a cheaper and just as effective charger for your GoPro batteries. If you have multiple batteries for your GoPro then it is necessary to have a charger like this.

                              The unit works well. It charges up my gopro battery in a reasonable time. However the led light that is supposed to light red while charging, lights green from the start. I depend on the red led on the gopro, that usually illuminates while charging, to extinguish, signalling the battery is now fully charged.

                                  Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for GoPro Hero 3 Battery:

                                  It works to charge GoPro batteries well, but they fit in the charger loosely. But, still a good value for the low cost.
