I think Sony's main shortfall is their seeming inability to properly advertise and promote their products. Case in point: The Cyber-Shot Accessory Kit. This is a great charger. It works with multiple batteries through a series of hinges plastic bits. Though that's a bit off-putting, it holds my battery securly for charging. It has clear LEDs that indicate how much the battery has charged, when it is done, or if it has malfunctioned. Connects directly to 110 with a swinging hideaway plug or by means of an included USB cable. The charger seems expensive, but it's not, as it includes on spare battery. If this had been more clearly described or promoted, I would have purchased it before buying a spare battery.

It works is the best I can say. Considering it is powering-up batteries for the RX-100, a very small compact design, this thing is exactly what I hate about Sony: they fall down on the small stuff, the details that matter to consumers. The bulk of this thing with an unnecessary line cord is as big as the camera...due to it being universal to several batteries. For the price of a RX-100 III (or much more for a IV) one should get a decent battery charger (and a manual) for that matter). The battery is small but the charger is incredibly clunky. I'll bet there is an aftermarket unit that is much smaller and less money.

You can be sure you are buying a legitimate product

Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

It's Sony. The main reason to buy something like this from a reputable seller like B&H is to have absolute certainty that the charger you are buying is legitimate. There are countless counterfeits out there that look almost exactly the same. It is better to buy from a third party 'known' brand like Watson for example... than to risk buying from a retailer that cannot guarantee the authenticity of the chargers.

I gave this charger 4 stars because it could have been much smaller if they hadn't made universal with 2, 3 other battery types. If you want to carry this in your small pouch together with your point and shoot, it will hardly fit, that's if it fits at all. Other that that minus the charger works as intended and chargers the batteries relatively quickly. The piece of mind that you are charging your batteries (especially lithium) with a legitimate proper charger is the main reason to buy this.

I would recommend anyone with a Sony RX100 to buy this.

Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

I bought this extra battery to use with my Sony RX 100 Mark III. It was always an effort to charge the one battery that I had inside the camera. As many have had this same problem when the battery goes dead, you're stuck having to charge it via the wall charger inside the camera. By purchasing the extra battery with the charger I now can have one battery ready to replace the other one when it goes dead immediately.

Many times I'd be out taking photographs and have to cut my journey short because I didn't have another battery, but now I do. When I ordered the battery and the charger from B&H Photo I expected it to take a few days to get here. Much to my surprise it was here the next day! Talk about fast delivery service. Further I watched many videos on YouTube about people that had bought batteries from overseas and didn't get the original battery. Many of these batteries went dead earlier than they should have and some didn't work after a few months.

One thing I like about buying from B&H photo is you know you're going to get the OEM product and not have to worry about copies. Thank you B&H!!!

Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

Nice portable universal Sony charger. AC prongs folds in. Includes a NP-BX1 battery & case. Charges X, G , N, D, T, R and K Sony batteries. Also includes a USB outlet and cable to charge a battery through your camera directly. You have to choose between charging a battery in the charger or via the USB outlet, but not both at the same time. Would have been nice if it could.

Does the job, but could be smaller

Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

Good bargain for the price. Battery charger is larger than it needs to be for the NP-BX1.(likely due to its being usable for several different batteries). The instructions were confusing on placement of the NP-BX1 into the charger.. Even though the written instructions correctly correspond to the drawing, the drawing actually represents the charger upside down so what is referred to as the left side of the charger is really the right side if the word Sony on the front is right-side up. Unfortunately, the drawings are not revealing enough to actually see how the battery sits in the charger. Once you figure this out, everything works as it should.

Useful, but I needed another as the first one died

By Ronald

Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

Really a better way to get your battery charged than using the USB port and your computer. However, these chargers are not very reliable. I purchased 2 last year, along with their batteries, because my Sony camera does a great job taking pictures, but eats batteries. So, you really need an extra battery or two in your pocket, and if you just use the phone/usb port setup to charge the battery in the phone you wont be able to charge multiple batteries overnight. Good product, but you need two to make sure one works.

Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

Plugs directly into wall outlet, prongs fold on back. Charges battery quicker than in camera. Charges various Sony battery types. I only wish it had the added ability to connect to USB on laptop or car when A/C not available.

I got this kit for our vacation in the Philippines. I needed a spare battery, and this kit included a battery and travel charger, so I don't have to plug the usb cable directly to the camera allowing me to take pictures while charging the spare battery at home.

By Walter

Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

This Sony made charger was a bit more than I would normally pay for a charger, but with a genuine Sony battery included it was an OK deal. Sony cameras seem to perform better with Sony batteries.
The charger is very well made and does tricks such as charging your laptop, iPad, etc. as well as charging a variety on Sony batteries with different terminal configurations. Being able to charge a variety of battery types may come in handy down the road.

Great to have an extra battery for all day trips. Wall charger seems to be much faster than through the camera. Only wish it'd be a tad cheaper... Seems steep for a battery and (fairly) universal Sony charger.

This was a smart purchase. It's imperative to be able to charge backup batteries while on holiday. This was trouble-free and worked well with my EUR travel adapter. I'd much rather use this to charge batteries than connecting my camera itself to foreign currents.

Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

I'm not fond of charging batteries in the camera. This kit is a cost effective way to get a spare battery and an external charger for my Sony HX80. The charger also has a switch to allow it to be used as a USB charger, so I can leave the one for my phone at home.

Comments about Sony Battery and Charger Kit with NP-BX1 Battery:

Original Sony batteries can be quite expensive, but I found that no name replacements are just not as good. This is an excellent deal as the cost is less than buying a single Sony battery locally. I just found that the instructions were not clear -- typical multi-language instructions .... I installed the battery as shown, but the charger did an intermittent flash that indicated something was no good. I then realized that the image for installation was incorrect (I put the direction arrow up as shown by the illustration and it didn't work properly - intermittent flashing, but when I checked more carefully and aligned contacts, it worked fine. Too bad Sony has cheapened the package by not including a charger for a camera that costs over $700 (original RX100) and is now over $1100 for the model 4...
