While I would not pretend that Sony isn't a cheap outfit for not including a battery charger, even in their top-end A7R camera nor do I excuse Sony for making batteries that are only good for 200+/- shots and batteries that take three hours to charge, I will say that they make a very handy, compact, sturdy and effective battery charger. Well worth paying the price that is charged for this accessory. I give this battery charger five-stars but Sony only one star (though I give the A7R five solid stars!).

Slow

I like it but it is really slow to charge the battery, I haven't measured the time exactly but at least 3 hours for a completely drained battery.

    Comments about Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger (Black):

    For some reason Sony has elected not to include a charger with it's newer cameras. Since the A7 series is pretty much a battery eater, the external is essential, especially when traveling. It's compact size the retractable power plug make it extremely easy to pack, even in the smallest bag.

      Comments about Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger (Black):

      I got this to charge the batteries for my a6000 and a6300. Since Sony only sends a cable with their cameras to charge the better is in body, this is a must. It's much faster and you aren't tethered by a 30" power cable.

            Solid charger for NP-FW Series. I tried some other third party alternatives before and they are inferior in build quality and unreliable; some come in two parts that causes charging to cease midway. No such worry anymore with BC-TRW!

                It is good to have so you can charge spare batteries while using the camera. It appears well made and holds the battery securely. It is easy to tell the charging status.

                    I recently bought an A7ii and hated the fact that I had to charge my batteries in the camera...I wish Sony would include a wall charger when buying a $ camera but I guess they have to make their money somehow, right?Anyways, the charger works great with no issues.It's very compact and doesn't take up much space in my camera bag.The build quality is superb, there's no cheap feeling plastic on it.I'd recommend it and buy again!

                          It's a battery charger for your batteries. No frills about it.

                          Pros:
                          -It has a nice 3-LED system to show you the amount of battery its charged
                          -Auto powers off after charging a battery to 100%
                          -Compact
                          -Batteries clip in securely

                          Cons-
                          I WISH IT CAME WITH MY SONY A7. Oh well.

                              It's unfortunate that Sony doesn't just include this like other camera companies do with their cameras. This is a simple, small charger that just works, anyone should just have this by default.

                                    Comments about Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger (Black):

                                    It's a charger, not anything else, it preforms the job but it takes too long in my opinion to charge the batteries. I like that the electrical plug folds into the unit so I don't need an additional piece of equipment I could loose.

                                    If you want a great option to the USB power cable provided with the Sony a6000, then your answer is the BC-TRW. Save your money and skip paying extra for fancy packaging!
