Adorama PT-48 AC/DC Rapid 7.2 volt Battery Charger for Canon LP-E8
Reviewed by 4 customers
It does its job and recharges my batteries. It is compact in size so fits into my carrying case easily.
I bought 2 Adorama batteries and a charger to replace items lost/stolen with my camera bag (original Canon charger and battery, along with 2 of the Adorama aftermarket batteries that worked just fine together.) Turns out this charger destroyed the batteries. When one battery ran out after a 1/2 day shooting, I put the other battery in and the camera wouldn't turn on. When I got back to my room that night I put the working battery in the charger, next day it was DOA, too. Adorama is standing behind its warranty, but this was a bad experience. I'm just glad it happened -before- we went on our planned trip overseas later this year!
Purchased this charger [...] i figured it was cheap but it would get the job done. i opened the box and a piece was broken, just a small black plastic piece that was supposed to keep the battery in place but still, so i put the battery in a possition that it wouldn't move so it could charge, set it there for 2 hours, come back and the battery didn't get any juice. complete waste of money.
I have used this charger along with my plug-in charger for quick charging the multiple batteries I have.
