        My a6000 only comes with a USB charger which is great, but it is so much nicer to have a wall charger so I can charge two at once, and leave a battery charging while out shooting.

            Good charger

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

            Same comment for the charger as the battery. Wish it was cheaper. I have the original charger that came with my NEX 7. This one takes the same time to charge as that. The two advantages - smaller size and a status indicator in addition to ON/OFF indicator. I have 6 batteries so need both the chargers as the cameras are always busy shooting.

              Works great, wish these came with the cameras not the silly 5v USB chargers.

              I use it as the mail charger for my A6000's batteries since it is not possible to use the camera while charging it. I have 2 batteries, one is Sony branded and the other one is a Watson equivalent. So far I have had no problems charging both of them. Let me point out that it charges quite fast. It is portable and easy to carry in my backpack or even in my jacket pocket.

                  I needed an additional charger for my Sony a series cameras. Originally I purchased an aftermarket inexpensive charger. That one got very hot and quit working. A replacement was sent out. That one worked sporadically and was cheaply made. I bit the bullet and bought this Sony charger and another one from Sony. I paid a little more money for them, but the quality was obvious and they do the job.

                      IMO a must have...I am not comfortable charging up my batteries on a regular basis in-camera (A7II). Nor tying up the camera in charging while in the field. The build quality is good and it's small enough to fit conveniently in any sized camera bag.

                          Nothing to it. It works, it's small, and it doesn't handicap your camera while the spare is charging. Should have come with the camera.

                          I used a non-Sony charger that I had on hand to charge my spare for a couple of cycles, but then the battery died (would not charge, would not respond in the camera) just when I needed it on a trip to Vietnam. Had to complete the trip on one battery, which was tricky

                          I got the BC-TRW and the "dead" battery was suddenly alive again.

                          The contacts on the NP-FW50 are really tiny, closely spaced and deep set. Better to use this than some "do all" unit that doesn't fit well.

                                        It is rather costly, but if you have the money it's worth it. It beats charging through the camera (which can be cumbersome and prevents you from using the camera anyway), and is a no brainer if you are using spare batteries.

                                            Got this a part of a bundle, for 14-15 bucks good deal. More than that you can probably find them on @.

                                                  Perfect accessory for my new SonyA7m2 camera so i don't have to wait until the camera recharges the battery but can always have an extra one at the ready.

                                                  This charger is small enough to be carried in my camera bag so it is available when I need it. I recommend it.
