V-lock battery charger question.

Hi,
I have two DSM v-lock battery's and a DSM battery charger, that will only charge the one battery at the time.
I also have Sony BC-L50 v-lock battery charger. I was wondering, if it would cause any harm to the DSM batteries if I used the Sony charger to charge them.

Thanks in advance.

Re: V-lock battery charger question.

What leads you to believe there might be a problem using a different brand V-mount charger? Are the DSM batteries not adhering to the V-mount specs?

Hi Gary, I just don't know, other than the two different manufacture names, that's all I was going by.

You think it should be OK to use the Sony charger?

Thanks.

Re: V-lock battery charger question.

I have three brands of v-lock batteries and three brands of chargers (Sony, Anton Bauer, B4B). I mix and match them all the time with no ill effects.
