I found it annoying to have to charge my Olympus LI-50B battery in the camera. I like to have one battery charged, and swap it out for the depleted one, which I put on a charger so it will be ready for the next swap. I didn't want to pay the $ for the Olympus charger, so purchased this one. It works fine, and I am completely happy with it. It comes with more accessories for international travel and vehicle travel, which are added bonus.

Works well. Good value.

Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for LI-50B / VW-VBX090 / D-Li88 Battery:

What can you say about a battery charger? It works well and charges within a very reasonable time. Reasonably priced. Bonus 1: the AC plug is built in, so no power cable to carry, store, or lose. Bonus 2: it has a USB port, so if your camera can be charged via USB (some can and some can't), you can charge two batteries at once -- one in the charger and one in camera.

How many different uses for a charger can there be? It did what it was supposed to do and did it well.

went to east africa for 3 weeks - this item performed TOP SHELF
took 10 batteries on safari and every night plugged the 3 watson chargers in and recharged all dead batteries( usaully 4 to 6 a day). mostly doing videos with a few snap shots. most batteries totally recharged within 2 hours, i used 3 different brands of batteries, with no difficulties. handles 110 volt to 240 volts using no adapters.
Totally awesome product!

    Comments about Watson Compact AC/DC Charger for LI-50B / VW-VBX090 / D-Li88 Battery:

    I bought this to charge the proprietary battery that comes with the Ricoh WG-5 camera; the charger which comes with the camera works through USB with the battery in the camera. I also bought a Watson equivalent battery pack for that camera, which has worked well so far, but I haven't had a lot of use for the camera yet.

            When travelling it's great to be able to recharge camera batteries off-camera. My Olympus Stylus Tough TG-860 Digital Camera did not include a separate charger. Not very handy !! It works with inputs of 100 to 240 VAC - good for international travel.
            This Watson charger include a 5 VDC USB port for charging iPods, etc.

                    Why Olympus does not include this is beyond me but it is a necessity for my use of the camera that I bought...allows me to charge a battery at home or in car while using the other battery. This unit fits in my small camera bag and works perfectly. No cons

                                          Great when taking a lot of pictures and having extra batteries, can't beat the price. I didn't find anything bad about it.
