Hi Philip,

 

If you are looking for an alternative charger for the Sony-F750 battery, I would recommend taking a look at the IDX LC-2S. The LC-2S is a 7.4V 2-Channel Simultaneous battery charger that is going to come standard with IDX's 2-year warranty.

 

You can find more information regarding the charger at the links below.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. (george@idx.tv)

Best Regards,

Philip,

 

Omni shots makes a professional (i.e. solid) quick charger:

Their batteries are good too. I've been using them for a few years. Cheap enough that when they start to go, just replace them. They also have the built in battery meter.

Reviving this thread. The Omnishots charger looks delightful but I will pass for $299, we don't need them charged THAT efficiently. Anyone have any specific recommendations for the Preston (M series) batteries? The Chinese ones fail pretty regularly, and I think Sony doesn't make them any more. There was that great dual smart charger they made but seems to be gone at this point.

Thanks Walter.

 

I did some digging and found pictures of my old dual Sony charger where thankfully the product number was on the front: AC-SQ950. I'm seeing a few up for sale on eBay and think I may go that route. It was a bulletproof charger for me for years, sold that with my Camos monitor a few years back. I think the Watson uses adaptors for different batteries, which seems to give a little more possibility for AC's to muck up insertion and removal?
