A Battery of AC/DC Chargers


Reddy Kilowatt would be proud. The iconic cartoon character of the electrical power industry was always pumped to power your appliances. Now Pearstone has positioned itself to do the same with chargers you can use at home, in the car or even in Europe.

Whether your camera or camcorder battery is from Nikon, Canon, Kodak, Fuji, Samsung, Pentax, Olympus, Panasonic, Sony, Casio or Konica-Minolta, Pearstone is ready to charge it.

Though a battery charger often comes with the camera, users sometimes leave them plugged into outlets in their hotel rooms, never to be seen again. Or the camera company only provides a way of charging the battery from a computer's USB port, which takes about twice as long as recharging the battery than an AC adapter. Or camera pros simply want a back-up charger. Or they want the flexibility of charging the battery from the cigarette lighter in their car. Or they need a charger with an adapter that fits the type of outlet found through much of Europe.

Whether you're shopping for a replacement charger or a charger that works in a greater variety of settings, you can probably save some money by getting one from Pearstone rather than one sporting the camera company's brand name. Last we checked, Pearstone offered some 72 different AC/DC chargers to accommodate the wide variety of battery sizes and shapes that snap into today's most popular cameras and camcorders.

All the Pearstone chargers include the AC adapter and DC adapter, but the European plug adapter may be an optional accessory depending on the model. (Check the list of included items under "What's in the Box" versus what's listed under the Accessories tab.) The battery itself is not included with these chargers.

Price on the canon 7d battery

Hi Christine -

The Canon LP-E6 Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery Pack (7.2V), has a capacity of 1800mAh, making it possible to shoot up to 850 shots at normal temperatures on a single battery charge. The battery is also more compact and lightweight than previous battery models. The price is viewable by clicking on the bold hyperlink above.

The LP-E6 battery also communicates with the EOS 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 60D, 70D, 6D and 7D digital cameras, so that you can always check the remaining capacity on the camera's power source info screen. In addition, a unique feature of the LP-E6 battery pack is that it has a microchip encoded with an 8-character serial number. So when the battery pack is installed in the camera, you can register it using a menu command. Then track the condition and power characteristics of up to 6 batteries in your camera to ensure you use your batteries evenly and identify batteries that are near the end of their useful lifespan.
