                      This charger is so compact yet includes car, computer and AC/DC charging capabilities all in one. The electric plug even folds in to make it even more compact. Best charger I've ever had (and I've had many)!!

                              I tried charging my Olympus Battery using AC, and it was a snap. The Charger has a wall plug, an Auto 12V charger and a European Adapter Plug. It's a great product with a fair price.

                                  It performs as expected, but it could have been less expensive by eliminating the unnecessary car charger.

                                      I found it annoying to have to charge my Olympus LI-50B battery in the camera. I like to have one battery charged, and swap it out for the depleted one, which I put on a charger so it will be ready for the next swap. I didn't want to pay the $ for the Olympus charger, so purchased this one. It works fine, and I am completely happy with it. It comes with more accessories for international travel and vehicle travel, which are added bonus.

                                        I had lost my charger for my pentax battery, replacement was over 50 bucks.. this has a multitude of functions and was less than half the cost.

                                        I'm traveling to France in a matter of days and this charger exactly fits the bill especially with the European plugs included in the purchase price. Extremely easy to use and charges in a short amount of time.

                                            An AC/DC, and USB, charger, wow talk about convenience. can't beat the price, and charges the battery in sufficient time. As I write this I think I'll buy another one.

                                              I purchased this charger to use with the new Olympus LS-100 PCM Recorder (also purchased thru B&H). The battery in the recorder can be charged with a provided charge cord but the recorder is inoperable while charging. By purchasing a spare battery and using this charger my workflow is not interrupted.

                                              The charger is compact, inexpensive, does not overcharge the battery and performs as advertised.

                                              Wanted something compact that didn't have a power cord, this is perfect, charges fast and even has a USB port to charge my iPad!

                                                  The XZ-1 definitely needed a non-USB charger.
                                                  I chose this one because it has exchangeable plates that I am hoping will allow me in the future to use it with other devices. It does have a USB port which should allow me to charge my IPAD as well while travelling.
