    Hi All,

    Just wanted to share my experience about this Chinese Dual USB Charger for the NP-W126 batteries. I badly needed this as I was on a road trip and lacked too many power sources. So most of the time I'd use my motorcycle battery to support charging the batteries.

    Please login or register to view links

    Pros:
    - Delivery was superfast here in Singapore
    - Packaging and material looked pretty good
    - Super compact and effective for the size & weight
    - Charged two batteries very quickly - less than the genuine Fuji chargers
    - Works with Fuji genuine and Ex-pro white batteries (All I use)

    Cons:
    - Batteries are too tight to fit, not sure if its by purpose but this is commonly noticed
    - Stopped working after using for 10 days or so

    Good part in the end
    - Worked throughout my trip until the second last day
    - The seller has sent me another piece and assured it'd not stop working

    Difficult to say that I would not recommend this product. Giving benefit of doubt to the seller, that I might have been too lucky with one faulty piece, I'll use the new replacement and come back if things get better.

    Hope this helps some of you.

    Cheers,
    VS

    Well, I wouldn't recommend a product that's broken in less than two weeks of use.
    Good news the seller sent you a replacement. How bout you report back after you've been using the new unit for awhile.

    The output rated the exact same as Fuji's BC-W126 at 0.6A so wonder how it can charge in less time. Either it's charging at higher rate, or the ex-pro batteries is smaller capacity than stated (same as Fuji's original).

    I wonder if the failure was from being constantly vibrated on a motorcycle?

    Hi Dave,

    I'm not the most technical guy, but I can say that the vibrations did not impact couple of other devices that I charged simultaneously too.


    Thank you,

    Not recommending it yet. Would wait for it to work for a few trips before I come back to everyone here.

    The output is exactly the same as Fuji, just that in the same time I can charge two and it occupies less space than one charger in my bag.

    Curiously, I just bought one from Amazon that looks identical to yours in every way, except it says Arche instead of Batmax. I like it. It seems to work fine.

    The original charger senses over heating of the battery during the charging process. I'm guessing this one does not (thus the faster charging). If this is the case, there is a good chance batteries will be damaged or have reduced lives.
