I think Sony's main shortfall is their seeming inability to properly advertise and promote their products. Case in point: The Cyber-Shot Accessory Kit. This is a great charger. It works with multiple batteries through a series of hinges plastic bits. Though that's a bit off-putting, it holds my battery securly for charging. It has clear LEDs that indicate how much the battery has charged, when it is done, or if it has malfunctioned. Connects directly to 110 with a swinging hideaway plug or by means of an included USB cable. The charger seems expensive, but it's not, as it includes on spare battery. If this had been more clearly described or promoted, I would have purchased it before buying a spare battery.

Sony should have included this...

It's super annoying that the RX100M2 doesn't come with a standalone charger in the box, especially for a compact camera in its price range. For that reason alone, I knocked off 2 stars....Read complete review

It's super annoying that the RX100M2 doesn't come with a standalone charger in the box, especially for a compact camera in its price range. For that reason alone, I knocked off 2 stars. Otherwise, it's a charger and a battery, they work, and all is well.

Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

I purchased this for the Sony RXIRii so I could have a wall charger. Works great and should have been included with the Sony RXIRii.

    Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

    I like using the stand alone charger better than using the provided cord to Charge. Repeated use of the charging plug cover tends to wear out the cover on the camera. Has a faster charge rate and Sony Battery has more power.

    No solo he comprado este cargador, también he adquirido otros productos y continuaré comprándole a B&H, porque tienen de todo en nuevo y usado, yo compro en ambos, además que sus ilustraciones y explicaciones técnicas, le permiten a uno seguridad al tomar la decisión de que comprar, o sea nos dan seguridad, muchas felicitaciones.

      I liked the how small the charger is. It doesn't take up a whole lot of space in my camera bag. The ability to turn into a charger for devices is an added bonus.

        Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

        The power prongs fold, so this is a true travel charger. I have several of the tiny chargers styled as battery cases, and they work well, but are slow.

        I carry the tiny chargers with me. This stays in my house, though I would take it on a long trip.

        It has a switch that allows it to function as a 1.5 amp usb charger as well. So when it isn't charging batteries, it is hooked to the cradle charger of my Sony Xperia Z tablet.

                Product quickly charges the battery for the Sony casmra. The three indicator lights let you know what the current charge level is. Tbhechasrgeing indicator stays on untill the battery is completely charged. The AC plugs folds over for storage latter use which makes it nice to store in small places

                  It's really nice to have a spare battery and an external charger. I really like not having to charge batteries while in the camera. This Sony brand unit works well and charges faster than the camera kit charger.

                    Important to have so you can use your RX100, etc. while simultaneously charging another battery. It plugs into the wall, and indicator of how much charge has happened/needs to happen is a great touch. Highly recommend.

                      I like that the charger works independently of my camcorder, plus I needed a 2nd battery anyway. B&H is one of the few places that I trust to sell me a genuine Sony product.

                        I have an older Sony DSC that the charger had been lost. Needed a charger to handle that battery and wanted an extra battery for my new Sony WX500 camera (also bought from B&H). This combo kit took care of both needs. Works like a charm and it's Sony original equipment so all's good.
