Olympus UC-90 reviews

UC-90 USB Battery Charger for Tough TG-1 iHS Cameras is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT INCLUDEDED In The Box With A NEW CAMERA This is the first camera I have ever purchased (I bought my first camera in 1968) that DID NOT come with a battery charger. Having to charge the battery in the camera, cuts down on camera usage. Even if you have a second battery as I do it becomes useless without a battery charger. I guess Olympus would much rather sell a new charger, then give one away in the box with a new camera. The charger does not have a 2 prong electrical plug for the wall outlet. It has a male USB connection that plugs into a USB-AC adapter(F-2AC) that plugs into a wall outlet. The connecting wire is only 4 inches long, so when you are charging a battery from a wall outlet, the whole setup hangs from the outlet. However, it is the only Olympus choice available.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't even have an AC plug! Now first of all it's already bad that Olympus didn't build its TG1 without a charger like Canon does, i.e. a small battery charger with collapsible AC blades which connects directly into the wall socket. It forces you instead to charge the battery while in the camera using a cumbersome connection of 2 wires and a voltage converter (provided in the box). This means you can't use the camera while the battery is charging and if you want the 'luxury' of having two batteries charged, you need to keep the camera out of use for at least 4 hours. So one decides to spend an additional 60 dollars (about 15% of the cost of the camera) just to buy this charger only to discover that it doesn't connect to the wall socket but has only a USB cable which forces you to still go around with the voltage converter and an additional cable to plug into the wall. Basically you still need 3 tools to charge the battery (although now outside the camera) and these 3 tools put together are much bulkier than the camera itself!!!! Shame on you Olympus for being so stingy and designing products like this. And Bhphoto please indicate in the description that this charger has only a USB plug!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job, expensively OK,it works as advertised, but I could not give it 5 stars. One, it is way too expensive for what it is and does. You could afford another battery for that price and likely not need this charger for most purposes. Also, for the money, you could (and I did) buy a cell phone battery backup which could recharge a battery many times via the (camera included) USB connector into the camera if only the USB charger/connector was universal and not proprietary (it won't work with a non-Olympus USB adapter wall plug either). You have to have this expensive proprietary charger to recharge the camera battery using a battery backup. So what, you say? Well, when you plan on being in the wild for weeks at a time and want to take lots of photos, you either buys lots of camera batteries or get a battery backup. If you don't have a wall plug, you're buying this thing. That said, kudos to B&H Photo for the best price and delivery time anywhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for travel Bought this charger so I wouldn't have to charge the battery in the camera while overseas. It worked great! I really wish it had an AC plug built in to the unit, and wasn't just for USB charging. But I brought the AC plug-in unit that came with the camera (also lightweight and compact) so it wasn't that big of an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for two battery sizes I took a chance and ordered this charger for my Olympus Tough 3-G which uses the thicker LI-92B battery. The charger was made for the LI-90B but will also fit and charge the LI-92B. Another thing I like about it is the attached USB cord. That's one less cord I have to pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UC-90 Works great This allows you to charge the battery outside the camera. So you can charge a battery, while still using your camera. Or, you can charge two batteries at the same time, one in the UC-90, one in the camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product and is OEM Nice product and is from the camera manufacturer. Only beef I have is that it would be nice to have a longer plug. Way too short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indespensible If the entire industry went off the rails anywhere, it was adopting the idea that you can charge your batteries in your camera. Sure....if you want to tie up your camera for a couple of hours. This unit utilizes the AC>USB charger that comes with the camera. Buy an extra battery, this charger, and you won't have any down time; you won't have to use your camera as a $ battery charger!
