I had a camera which requires me to charge the battery via the camera. This is not to my liking. In order for me to avoid charging the camera battery via the camera, I then look for an external charger. The original charger for the camera is only able to charge that brand of batteries.
I was considered lucky as I normally browse the internet to search for the item I want. And found a few models that are able to charge different brand of camera battery.
I ended choosing Hahnel Uni Plus, because of the mini LCD screen to read the percentage charge. What more attractive is the charger able to tell the percentage of battery charge left in it.
The packing of the charger is simple and sealed tight. The only challenge is to put it back in it after using the charger. As I like to keep it neat when at home.
