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.

            Does what it's supposed to do. This charger should have been included with the camera... not the one that Sony ships that requires the battery to be installed in the camera while it charges. This thing works with 110V/220V and USB. Plus, it includes an extra NP-BX1 battery in a plastic case.

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

            It works is the best I can say. Considering it is powering-up batteries for the RX-100, a very small compact design, this thing is exactly what I hate about Sony: they fall down on the small stuff, the details that matter to consumers. The bulk of this thing with an unnecessary line cord is as big as the camera...due to it being universal to several batteries. For the price of a RX-100 III (or much more for a IV) one should get a decent battery charger (and a manual) for that matter). The battery is small but the charger is incredibly clunky. I'll bet there is an aftermarket unit that is much smaller and less money.

                    The wall charger has a flip out wall prong and cones with a USB connector for charging as well. A battery is included.
                    Makes it a lot easier to charge an extra battery without the camera. The downside is you have to purchase it separately.

                    The camera I use it in tends to eat battery life. I can use this at home or in the hotel or hook it up to a battery charger in the field.

                            It's always nice to have a spare battery for your camera and I really don't like charging the battery in the camera so this is a good fix to that problem. But, for the price of the camera, I think it should have been included as it is in nearly every other camera I have ever purchased.

                                This should be been included because the battery life, so far at least, is very short. And, most similar cameras at this price level include a charger. The included item to charge while the battery is in the camera is inadequate and an annoyance for most users.

                                The unit seems to operate well after using it once, but the indicator lights are not the most indicative of the state of the charge or when charging is completed.

                                  The product works as described, but you have to choose to either charge the battery direct or use the USB port to charge the battery In the camera. they should have allowed for both options simultaneously. this way two batteries could be charged at the same time using 1 charger.

                                  Works great. Really useful that it comes with an extra battery.

                                        Since Sony doesn't provide a separate charger for those of us who need a second battery, this is the best option. It works. What else is there to say?

                                        Although I do think that the charger should be included with the camera, I am satisfied with the product itself. It's pretty fast and I'm glad that I don't have to plug in the camera each time the battery runs down.
