This charger is one of the best I have ever used. In the past when I have taken advantage of a good deal on a charger it turns out to be slow as mud, but this time I got a good deal on a charger that is incredibly fast. I was very pleased with how quickly these batteries charged. As it turns out I was extremely fortunate to have charged an extra battery on this trip. I was on a cruise and one of the excursions was the beach in St. Marteen where the beach is at the end of the runway. Just before the first wide body jet approached my camera battery went dead. It literally took 30 sec. for me to reach into my camera bag and grab the spare charged battery for my camera and I was able to capture pictures and videos I had waited years to get. The spare battery was fully charged and lasted well after that day on the beach. I would say that I got well more than my monies worth from this purchase!!!
Purchased for use with a Kodak M550 camera. Having these four extra batteries fully charged, along with the original KLIC-7006 battery, allowed me to keep my camera at the ready for most of a very long day. I was able to take more than 500 photos (over 200 MB total, most without flash) and record about an hour and a half of video (over 6 GB total) using the four batteries sold here with the original one, turning the camera on and off frequently over the course of around 12 hours before I drained all the batteries and had to switch to a different camera. The charging time for each battery with the included charger was typical--an hour or two--and they each held a charge for about as long as the original.
I haven't tried the car charger yet, but it's nice to have, just in case. I also can't say anything about the longevity of the batteries since I've only had them for under two months. But for the price at which I bought them and the charger, I'll be quite satisfied if they...
This entire item looks and for the most part is a good product. The problem I am having is one of the batteries seems to discharge much faster than the other. Like quick. I have fully charge both batteries in the same way. Took camera on short trip to take some pics, and had to switch to my phone to take pics. The one battery has to be defective. If the company is listening, you could send 1 battery to replace the screwed up one. Gave it 3 out of 5 because only 2/3 functional. Nice to have a second functional battery to reload power on the fly. *Update- Kastar acknowledge my review and issue with faulty battery. Said they would send out a replacement battery within 2-3 days. They also said they wished I would have contacted them before posting a review. I did not receive a new battery after waiting almost a month. I contacted them again and in fact received a functional replacement more than a month after initial complaint. So I upgraded them from 3 to 4 stars. Out of...
