Third party charger?

Anyone have any experience with third party chargers for the XH A1 battery?

Hi Loren,
I bought a generic battery for my A1 & it came with a plug in charger, that can also be used in the car when you plug in the supplied cable. I have been using it for the last 18 months charging both the origianl Canon battery & the 2 generic batteries i bought. I have used it probably more than the original Canon supplied charger & have had absolutely no problems.

Hope this helps.

Bryce

I use a Lenmar Mach Fusion (I think it's called) charger. Using 2 different adapter plates I can charge the A1's batts (noticeably faster than the stock charger), HV10's batts, and AA's.

I know it's "consumerish" looking, but who cares. It serves it's purpose... one charger... many uses.

I have the $19.99 Impact travel charger from B&H.
But I use the OEM Canon single charger more often unless Im strapped for time then i'll take out the Impact charger.

I have the one supplied canon batteryBP950 and 3 Lenmar BP970s (which are great BTW)

Link of the charger i use rarely
