    Sony BC-TRW W battery charger.

    By Gadams53

    from Birmingham AL

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

    This charger works very well. It is compact and easy to store in a small camer bag. The plug folds into the side of the charger to make storing in a side pocket of a camera bag easy.

    Best option instead of having the camera connected to the UBS. Also in charge indicator gives you a good idea on how the battery is charged.

        Although in camera charging is useful on the A series cameras, they also eat batteries, so having this is almost a necessity if you want to have a spare on hand. It does it just fine.

                Performs fantastically once I got mine. For what you can want out of a battery charger, you pretty much get. It has progress lights and a lowish profile with folding prongs to save space when not in use. Charging my A7 with the USB cord was a nightmare I don't want to have to return to.

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

                There are a lot of generic versions of Sony batteries, however do you want to find out that your charge didn't complete when you are out on the field? This charger gets to charge very fast and offers a series of LEDs that notify you of the charge level. Made to work with the manufacturer's batteries so I have a lot of confidence that when I am diving I won't have to worry about battery issues.

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

                  By design, the Sony a7 and the a6000 are "charge within body" kits. This is cool because then you don't have to carry another charger if you already have a device that charges via MicroUSB like an Android phone.

                  But what if you need to charge your battery while using another battery? Enter stage right: BC-TRW Battery Charger. Now you can use your camera and recharge a battery! I use this for almost all my W-series charging needs, even, because it charges faster than USB does.

                  Honestly, I think this should have been included in the kit, but I can see why they didn't. At any rate, get this. You won't regret it.

                    I purchased this to charge a second W series battery for my Sony a6000 (see my full review at [*[*]). The charger absolutely works as I expected. Delivery from B&H to Canada is pretty fast - I had it in less than a week. I paid for customs clearance, so everything went smoothly. Really happy with the product and the B&H shopping experience.

                      You have to have at least one extra battery with the SONY A6000 and this guy does the job. Very compact, easy to use, and lightweight. Looks sturdy and durable, too. Glad I finally broke down and bought one.

                          Unfortunately, the Sony camera I have goes through battery charges like water through a sieve. So having the convenience of a separate battery charger, rather than the need to use the camera, is a great convenience. This charger is easy to use and saves me time.

                                This is essential if you plan to do any continuous shooting with a Sony product using the FW-50 battery. I purchased this after realizing that the a7R did not come with an external charger, and the camera eats batteries quick enough that without one of these you will spend a lot of time with your camera attached to the power outlet charging the battery and not shooting. This should have been included with the a7R package in my opinion, but oh well. It's much smaller than I expected, charges the batteries, and keeps me shooting. Works great.

                                    I fully recommend instead of using your camera as a
                                    Battery charger.

                                          Expensive, but gives you information on level of charge dynamically. Not a fast charge,

                                              I use this to charge My A7 batteries. I wish it was included but it was no big deal to buy after the fact.
