    You have to swallow hard before you'll drop ~$700 on a battery charger. However when you have a fleet of devices that use these batteries and the chargers that most companies include, take roughly 8-12 hours to put a full charge on the higher mAh batteries you soon realize the struggle is real. Bottom line, 4 batteries, under 4 hours...a godsend. The best part it's rugged, it's easy to use, and it seems bulletproof. To me, it came down to what's it worth to be ready to roll.

    So Far So Good

    I've only had this unit long enough to use a couple of times, so for the long run, I really have no idea. I am a little concerned that it's not a Panasonic, but so far so good. It continually scans each battery, one after the other, keeping tabs on the process, and giving progress reports for each battery. The only reason I give it 4 stars and not 5, is it's cost. It is a little on the spendy side, though in the long run, (if it goes the distance), it'll probably be worth it.

    Perfect for hire stores!

    Nice being able to avoid having 4 canon chargers with all their unneccessary tangles of wires. good data read out on battery status

    I didn't know a charger could be this impressive.

    The pictures don't do this charger justice. This thing is enormous when you compare it to normal single and duel chargers, plus it's metal. The screen is much brighter and clearer than the pictures suggest, and it just feels so much more substantial and looks more professional than any other charger I've ever seen. It performs better too. I mean... I just watched it charge an NP-F970 20% in what felt like five minutes. If you want to be the most reliable guy on set, this charger is a must have. Bite the bullet and get one, you won't regret it.
