    I purchased this charger when I somehow lost the charger for my Canon T2i. [...]. This charger offers more features than the charger that came with the camera. (That charger cost a lot more to replace than the Pearstone charger). You can charge the battery or any other device that has an USB adapter via the USB port; you can charge the battery while in the car -came with a car battery adapter; and you can charge the battery via AC. This charger is convenient, compact, and reasonably priced. The only downside is that it takes a little longer to charge the battery but if you have a back up battery, that shouldn't be a problem.

    Marginal quality

    Batteries are difficult to seat properly in the "sled". When compared side by side with Canon factory recharger, it took almost twice as long to charge batteries which were partially drained.

            Seems to charge reasonably quickly. A little bulkier than it need be because it has a universal charging mechanism with a customized battery plate. Still a lot more compact than OEM charger which is way to bulky to carry around on vacation.

                A small camera charger that doesn't take up a ton of room in my bag and that is also adaptable, so if I want to use it for different batteries, I don't need to buy a whole new charger. It's also cheaper than the chargers Canon sells. Love it!

                  Very simple charger, I like the flip out wall adapter. No cords. Unless you want to charge in the car, there's a cord for that of course.

                        It is better than my charger from Canon. Now I do not have to concern myself about where is the cord or packing it with me. As a bonus there is a plug adaptor for other outlet configurations.

                                  The price is right and it included a car charge capability. My Canon battery didn't snap in quite as easily as it snaps into my Canon charger, but that's a very, very minor quibble.

                                        No problems and it seems of pretty good quality.

                                            Bought this for my Canon T3i. Charged the battery in no time also fit in my camera bag as well so I can take it with me and do on-site charging as well.

                                                I needed to replace my old charger because the cord got separated from the charger and the cord wasnt sold separately. This was recommended as an inexpensive alternative and it serves the purpose perfectly well.
