A Bit of A Let Down
on 16 April 2013
The charger comes with a UK plug only, although it comes in 2 parts which suggests that there are other options. It is universal in the sense that it will charge a large variety of batteries within the stated voltage range, but to be supplied without European or US plug adapters is very poor indeed. Had I known this I would not have made the purchase. I use 3 different Nikon batteries, and they all showed fully charged, though I knew that they were not. The problem was that the spring loaded cover doesn't grip the battery tightly enough and there isn't a good contact. Elastic bands saved the day with the 7.4 v batteries, but I haven't yet come up with an answer for the little Coolpix battery.
I'll probably keep it, as it will charge my wife's Kindle, as well as AA/AAA batteries and comes with a car charger.
