Thanks to the reviewer that explained the pilot light codes.
Simple yes but no green for charged?
No red for overtemp?
One Amber for everything.
Glad I didn´t pay much for it.
Many Many more feature rich units are available.
First, I can´t believe Nikon didn´t already include this with the camera, instead they supplied a charger that connects directly to the camera and then the outlet.
And when I travel with this camera I won´t want to have to plug the camera into an outlet, I´d rather just plug the battery into the outlet to charge..
Also, I cannot believe Nikon did not have the foresight to include a charger that had extendible outlet prongs instead of going with a separate cord attaching to the charger....more to lose and possibility of mixing up cords and chargers....
Very disappointed in Nikon
I like the review from ´elp´. There is one setting that is not described. What happens when there are NO indicators lit? I happen to have two of these chargers and I always pick up the wrong one. I think this means the power supply inside the unit is dead. Since I can´t get into the unit, I can´t troubleshoot the power supply. The other unit I give 5 stars to as it does work. This one does not. Forgot how I came across the ´bad´ unit, but I am in the process of hacking it appart to see what makes it tick. More later when I find the problem. Probably a ´fuse´ that opened when something shorted the output pins.
This charger works just fine and there is nothing to complain about. It´s fast and reliable.
Few words about light indicator:
glows (battery not inserted) - charger plugged in, ready to work
blinking (battery inserted) - battery recharging
glows (battery inserted) - charging is complete, battery is full, ready to be removed
flickers (battery inserted) - temperature is outside the designated range or there is a battery malfunction - unplug the charger immediately!
The Nikon MH-61 battery charger seems easy to use. However, I would have liked to have a little more documentation with the product -- for example, an explanation of what the color of the light indicator means.
