Using MH-61 charger

This charger works just fine and there is nothing to complain about. It's fast and reliable. Few words about light indicator: glows (battery not inserted) - charger plugged in, ready to work blinking (battery inserted) - battery recharging glows (battery inserted) - charging is complete, battery is full, ready to be removed flickers (battery inserted) - temperature is outside the designated range or there is a battery malfunction - unplug the charger immediately!

Easy to use

The Nikon MH-61 battery charger seems easy to use. However, I would have liked to have a little more documentation with the product -- for example, an explanation of what the color of the light indicator means.

Clear and precise description of the ite


from Bellingham, Wa.  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

The battery charger works really good. The camera I bought didn't include a separate charger. It is nice to have a way to charge my spare battery while still having my camera available to use. The one thing I would change about the MH-61 is to get rid of the long electrical cord and have the charger plug directly into a socket.


Convenient Charging for EN-EL 5 Batterie


from Salisbury Maryland  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

So much easier than charging the battery than doing it in the camera. Should have been included by Nikon as part of the camera purchase.


Nikon MH-61 Battery Charger


from Holliston, MA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I have an extra battery for my Nikon P520 camera and this charger makes it easy to charge one battery while taking pictures with the other.


Works Fine


from Mamaroneck NY  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Great for charging extra batteries. The wire does take up a little extra space, but not really bulky.

This is old school type charger


from Queens, NY, USA

First, I can't believe Nikon didn't already include this with the camera, instead they supplied a charger that connects directly to the camera and then the outlet. And when I travel with this camera I won't want to have to plug the camera into an outlet, I'd rather just plug the battery into the outlet to charge.. Also, I cannot believe Nikon did not have the foresight to include a charger that had extendible outlet prongs instead of going with a separate cord attaching to the charger....more to lose and possibility of mixing up cords and chargers.... Very disappointed in Nikon

Great package, would like to know what happens when no lights light.


from Brick, NJ

I like the review from 'elp'. There is one setting that is not described. What happens when there are NO indicators lit? I happen to have two of these chargers and I always pick up the wrong one. I think this means the power supply inside the unit is dead. Since I can't get into the unit, I can't troubleshoot the power supply. The other unit I give 5 stars to as it does work. This one does not. Forgot how I came across the 'bad' unit, but I am in the process of hacking it appart to see what makes it tick. More later when I find the problem. Probably a 'fuse' that opened when something shorted the output pins.


Nikon MH-61 review


from Ft. Walton Beach, FL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

The MH-61 facilitates charging EN-EL5 batteries external to the camera. It charges the batteries more quickly than the stock (in-camera) charger.


The Nikon MH-61 charger


from Summerfield, FL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This charger allows you to use one battery while another is being charged. The short time it takes to obtain a full charge (2 hours) is more than sufficient for keeping two batteries charged while traveling on vacation. I see no faults in this charger. I also have a Nikon D70s that takes an EL-3a batter which as a similar charger. It has been working pefectly for four years.


Battery charger to my Nikon P500


from Yuba City, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

The Nikon P500 does not come with a battery charger as it has the ability for the battery to be recharged in the camera. I got the charger because I prefer not to charge the battery in the camera but I can charge two batteries at the same time using the camera and charger if I feel I may need the backup battery. I was surprised at how fast I received the charger since I live out in California. I have always been very happy with any products I have ordered from
