I purchased this charger when I somehow lost the charger for my Canon T2i. [...]. This charger offers more features than the charger that came with the camera. (That charger cost a lot more to replace than the Pearstone charger). You can charge the battery or any other device that has an USB adapter via the USB port; you can charge the battery while in the car -came with a car battery adapter; and you can charge the battery via AC. This charger is convenient, compact, and reasonably priced. The only downside is that it takes a little longer to charge the battery but if you have a back up battery, that shouldn't be a problem.

I have now gone back to using the original Canon charger.

I may have bought 3 of these over the last few years just because I leave them plugged in at random places I've shot. They are great and reliable!

No longer charges...after 8 months of light use.

Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for LP-E8 Battery:

I liked the form factor of this charger because it didn`t have any wires… Much better to carry around in the camera bag. Unfortunately the thing stopped charging my batteries about four months ago. I used iit to charge my batteries less than 25 times I bet.

So I`m back to using the default Canon  charger that came with my camera.

Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for LP-E8 Battery:

Basically I lost my original battery charger for my Canon camera and picked this up for a geat price. Charges batteries well, light indicater let's you know when battery is charged. Also comes with car charging adapter which is a plus and the USB in case you need to charge that cellphone at the same time. Great product and value. Beats paying double the price at Best Buy

Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for LP-E8 Battery:

Compact (cordless, fold-out plug design) as could be.
Has cord for vehicle power outlets and adds a separate (two round shaped prongs) plug for Europe & other places.
Considerably better than what comes with the Canon T3i

Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for LP-E8 Battery:

Needed a charger on a Sunday with my photographed undergraduate portfolio due that Monday, and this charger came to the rescue. I used the car charger on my ride home from the city and was ready to photograph by the time I got home. Charged the battery as well as a canon charger. Great product!

        First it sounded like it was a good deal. It's broken after one use. Obliously no refound, because my second use attemp was 3 months later. I would Stick the original one.

          Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for LP-E8 Battery:

          I'm very impressed with the quality and effectiveness of the Watson battery products. I purchased this as a backup for my DSLR. I'm so pleased I'll be purchasing more for my speedlites. Can't beat the price for a product that's just as good the big name brand. Highly recommend.

            Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for LP-E8 Battery:

            I use this as a second charger for when I shoot weddings. I love that I can plug it in my car while changing locations or plug it in the wall to charge my two spare batteries at the same time. The batteries seem to hold a charge just as long when using this charger as when I use my my regular Canon charger. The green indicator light is useful and works properly.
            Although the battery does not fit in the charging station as smoothly, it does fit without damaging anything so it just takes some maneuvering of the battery to get it in there.

            Good price, and the charger works well. Includes a car adapter and a plug that should allow it to be used outside the US. Guess I hadn't read the description well enough so, these two things surprised me. :-) Always nice to be pleasantly surprised, right?
