Canon CG-580 reviews

CG-580 Portable Battery Charger is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cant go wrong with canon I recently had all my gear stolen. I needed to get back into the game quick. I purchased an online auction charger that said, 'for canon' after receiving it there was only 2 screws holding the casing together. The insides had very thin wire with poor connections. This online auction battery charger did not only charge my BP-511A to full, but it kept charging it past (over charge) there was no timer or voltage meter built in. I knew i had to get a real charger. I purchased the Canon charger and this thing charges perfectly. I only use canon batteries. I feel with proper charge from this charger my batteries will have a long life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth The Money I purchased this product to recharge my battery for the Canon 40D (the original worked fine until destroyed in a house fire.) I had bought an off-brand universal charger at a local electronics store first as a replacement, but it was confusing and ended up not working with my battery, so I returned it and bought this. This particular product is easy to use and fits perfectly with my battery. I am pleased with the quick recharge time. I have not had any difficulties with it and have used this model for four months now. I would strongly recommend using this charger for compatible Canon batteries instead of a generic one, because the generic one ended up being a big hassle for me. The extra few dollars spent on this was worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good -- but be sure it still works I used this for about three years before it stopped working. I didn't realize it had stopped working because all of the lights still flashed and showed it was charging batteries. Then I noticed how quickly the batteries were seemingly getting charged (the red light would very quickly move to solid). But the batteries wouldn't be charged. Good charger, but when it goes out you might not know. As a pro, this is one reason I always carry back up chargers. The charger I had before this one (the same Canon charger but with the cord) still works fine -- it outlasted the CG-580 by far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Try the non portable I have two of these and am about to buy the Canon unit with the power cord which is still pretty portable but comes with a long power cord. I have found that depending on the outlet, sometimes these portable ones can lose their power in the middle of charging the battery. I think the unit slowly pulls out of the wall from its own weight. If its not pushed hard into the wall I sometimes cant get it to power on at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I HIGHLY recommend this product, B&H Photo and Canon. As always, B&H Photo carries top of the line products and Canon always makes top of the line products so it was no surprise that I received my package very quickly, well packed and everything was in order. Took the charger right out of the packaging and charged the battery up for my camera and everything worked perfectly. Love B&H Photo and won't go anywhere else and love Canon too so wont' buy any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! This is a nice compact charger. It was apparently designed to be easy to stow in your gear bag, and they did a great job in that regard. There's no cord, and the outlet prongs fold up when not in use. It takes up very little room in the bag when traveling. It charges my batteries in about an hour or less, and I like the blinking light to let you know the charging status. Good product and worth the money, IMO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, Slim, and Speedy Charger I have only had this charger for about a week, but up to this point its been a solid performer. Charging time was drastically reduced from my third party universal charger. Went from around an hour and some change to just under a half an hour per battery. Plug folds up nicely and takes up a lot less space in my camera bag pockets, which is great for when I am on the go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great! This product is great. It consistently works well. I have had one for quite some time, needed another since I left my last charging at a wedding I shot. Generally the no long cord is great but occasionally it can be a pain if you are plugging it into a power strip etc and the charger itself takes up 3 spots.
