    Watson C-3508 reviews

    Compact AC/DC Charger for BLS-1, BLS-5, or BLS-50 Battery is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved it until.... I've used this charger regularly for three and a half months, since I bought it in March. Lately I've been recharging my two replacement batteries two or three times a week each. Last night the charger (with battery) was plugged into an outlet overnight. These photos show what happened -- it got so hot it melted the plastic. The battery seems to be ok so far. Very disappointed, but glad there wasn't a fire. :-(

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More compact, does the job The Watson is slightly smaller and doesn't require the bulky AC cord of the OE Olympus charger. The battery could fit more snugly so as not to fall out when the unit is plugged into a wall receptacle.
    Date published: 2015-04-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This should be standard for Olympus This charger is just what I was hoping for. Why Olympus doesn't provide this style instead of their bulky charger accompanied by a 4-foot cord is beyond me. This set comes with the European adapter, too. Couldn't be easier, and the charge was fast.
    Date published: 2018-05-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meets my needs for a compact charger It fits nicely in a small camera bag for travel with my Olympus Stylus 1. The Olympus charger is bigger, heavier, and uses a long cord. I could shorten the cord; but it's still to big, so I wanted something compact.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product this is just what the doctor ordered. was not sure what to order every one there is very knowable on the product that I was ordering and it is working great thank you

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Seems to do what its supposed to do. Build quality seems okay. It's a but more of a snug fit than the origional but not a big deal.
    Date published: 2014-08-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This should be the charger that Olympus supplies. The standard Olympus supplied charger is a non-starter for traveling. It now sits in a box. I use this charger exclusively now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for travel and home Love this charger. Can be used in car and for international travel. Works great.
