    VariZoom SC302 reviews

    SC-302 Sequential Battery Charger is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the Price Yes it only charges one battery at a time, but it charges fairly fast and for the price you can't beat it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Charger! Bought this along with my first VariZoom NP-1 batteries. So far so good. I didn't keep track of a charge time, but it juiced up the battery inside of a few hours. Seems pretty well made overall, and really an essentialist design. No frills. Casing is solid. Power cord is detachable and fairly heavy duty. There's no power switch, only a general power indicator, and two indicator lights for the battery bays/connections, one light for each bay. The light indicates a charging battery, or a fully charged, non-charging battery. You plug the charger in, put a battery in each bay, or one battery in one bay- for that matter- and it charges the batteries, one at a time. NOT simultaneously. It does stop charging when a battery is done, and indicates that its finished via the light. Which is nice. This charger overrides the battery LED power indicators on the battery itself, at least on VariZooms. So, you can't see % power ratings on the battery when it's plugged in. The charger has wide ventilation slats on the top. You can see the insides a little bit, but there's nothing sloppy about it. It's just a simple design. Consider it a solidly economic option. Switronix and IDX both sell chargers for twice as much, but they also have additional stuff that may be sort of superfluous for someone who owns a few NP-1s. I have heard nothing but good things about VariZoom battery systems thus far. I'm giving it 5 stars until I feel deserves any less.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Alternative I chose this unit over a more expensive variant to charge a pair of VariZoom NP-1 batteries. The system was very easy to set up: plug it in and stick the batteries in: there's only one way they will fit! Be aware that the Sequential in the title means it charges one battery, then when that one is done, it charges the other. This is a solid product that does the job well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I needed Goes with the S8056N Lithium-Ion Battery by VariZoom. Charges quickly, but only one battery at a time -- something that surprised me. It's not a deal breaker, but why not charge both at once? I'm no battery scientist, so I'll leave the rest of my charging thoughts on the shelf. For now, it gets the job done.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect alternative to IDX products I've been trying to save a few bucks on a NP1 power solution for field sound recording. I've always been satisfied with IDX in the matter, but I have to say now that I don't see any good reason to pay twice the price. I've been using the charger and batteries for about a month now and everything is perfect.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery warning I did not see the note about this charger not being able to charge IDX System Technology NP-L7S batteries. Just a warning I wish I had noticed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great charger for hte money I looked high and low for a reasonably priced NP1 charger and this was the only one I found! It works great and is a much better deal than the others I saw.
