While I would not pretend that Sony isn't a cheap outfit for not including a battery charger, even in their top-end A7R camera nor do I excuse Sony for making batteries that are only good for 200+/- shots and batteries that take three hours to charge, I will say that they make a very handy, compact, sturdy and effective battery charger. Well worth paying the price that is charged for this accessory. I give this battery charger five-stars but Sony only one star (though I give the A7R five solid stars!).

Slow

I like it but it is really slow to charge the battery, I haven't measured the time exactly but at least 3 hours for a completely drained battery.

Nice and small battery charger

straightforward to use. Great and simple design. No cords which is a huge plus. I don't like small equipment but this thing does as advertised and does it really well.

sony battery charger

Comments about Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger (Black):

I like the charger a lot. Now I can shoot pictures with one battery in the camera and one on the charger. Should have been included with the camera purchase. But! It is really worth the money

Its ok... It works, but could be better.

Comments about Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger (Black):

I prefer the charger that comes with the Sony A7SII. That one just slides in. I feel like this one is a little rough on the batter contacts when you put it in and take it out.

Fast charger!

By Flying Al

Comments about Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger (Black):

This wall charger would charge Sony battery at lighting fast. Simple to use, has led indicator when battery is fully charge. I carry this when traveling, multi voltage so it can be use in other countries with 110-220v.

Work well

By Jian

from Chestnut hill, ma

Comments about Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger (Black):

You'll need to charge more frequently due to short battery life, so having a good charger is necessary. This charger does the work. I would be good though if there is charger for charging two battery simultaneously

      Thumbs Up for the Sony Alpha Series.

      By Tone

      from Lacey Township

      Comments about Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger (Black):

      It has it's ups and downs. But I think the Ups out weigh the downs.

      Let's start with the Downs

      - Not able to use with car charger for portability. (It has to be able to plug into wall.

      Work around is to get the outlet adapter to your car but that makes for a bulky sight.

      Up side is that you don't have lose your camera while charging the battery. Cause we all know that Sony cameras does not come with the external charger. And on top of all this as soon as the camera reads the USB slot that's it. You can no longer shoot the camera while it's charging.

      So this is a big upside to me. I just carry extra batteries for my grip usually 2 will last me the day but I have 3 just in case.

        Comments about Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger (Black):

        So much better than plugging my a6000 into the outlet. And it was cheap enough to justify the accessory. Works as intended and has some lights to let you know where the charging is at.

        Good charger but Sony should include it in the package

        Comments about Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger (Black):

        The charger is good, but Sony should include this in the package. I bet more than 90% of A7 users have more than one battery and uses external battery charger instead of the micro USB port on A7 body.

          Comments about Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger (Black):

          For some reason Sony has elected not to include a charger with it's newer cameras. Since the A7 series is pretty much a battery eater, the external is essential, especially when traveling. It's compact size the retractable power plug make it extremely easy to pack, even in the smallest bag.
