Despite The Sprint's bulky design and crazy placing of the power in put so that during charging it becomes twice the length, it does come witn an in car charger so it met that need, but to charge the full 4 2700 mah batteries (supplied) it takes closer to two hours. (Tells you this in the small print).
This however is not my biggest problem with this charger. Using my standard six hour Uniross charger at home and charging my 2700 mah batteries for the full six hours I can take in the region of 300 shots with my digital Fuji S 5600 camera, yet when using the Sprint for the full two hour charge the same batteries struggle to take 150 shots.
I have given this charger 3 stars because it is a very useful piece of equipment to have in the car as a back up charger and albiet in the small print Uniross does let you know the shortfalls of this model.
If you are only going to buy one battery charger then try a different model with a longer charge time, but if you are looking for a handy back up to keep in the car this is for you.
The charger is very unreliable takes a lot of fiddling to get the batterys to charge some batterys i cant get to charge in this at all (all Uniross brand batteries). It is very rare that i can get 4 batterys to charge at the same time normally only 1 side works. The batteries do not feel very secure when in the charger.
The charger has finally gone in the bin as underneath on one side the plastic has melted.
I hope this is a blip in uniross's unsual high quality range of chargers.
Agree with the comments about the batteries not secure in their compartments - to the extent that it takes much fiddling about, pressing down to get both lights flashing. Usually one lit will go out, leaving the batteries unequally charged. Extra charging time needed to balance them out.
Good idea to keep it as a spare.
It is worth noting that to charge 2 batteries takes 1 hour, but to charge all 4 batteries takes 2 hours (This is mentioned in the instructions).
The portability of the unit is also questionable as the grey unit (pictured) does not close with the AA batteries in position. The AC charger is also a seperate unit (as expected) but carrying that around too reduces the portability. However, compared to some units I'm sure it is small as can be.
Finally well done to Amazon for getting the item to me so quickly, ordered on the 14th Jan, delivery estimate was 26th Jan to 5th Feb, item arrived on 24th Jan with Super Saver Delivery. Ta very much!
P.s. It's almost half price on Amazon! High street shops RRP this at £[...]. What a bargain.
I read others reviews and they surprised me and came across as idiotic, the unit closes when not in use and can't when in use ... so what (and it's small and light), it's only open when charging. The batteries themselves are fantastic, they last forever, normally I get about 2 days use out of my 2200mAh's but these go 7 days.
The charger fits easily into my gadget bag and recharges off of the car when I travel - it has two red lights that flash when charging, when the flashing goes constant on the batteries are ready.
So good was this buy, at this price, I have ordered an extra set of 2700mAh batteries.
Fantastic purchase, and one I am happy to recommend to you.
Other than that I am very happy with the charger, it does indeed fully charge the 4x 2500maH in around 1 hour and is very compact.
