Saw this posted on another site and seems like an insane deal, but with the caveat that I have not tried them myself yet. It is a dual charger plus two LP-E6N compatible 2000mAh batteries for $18.59. Use code JUSFGJYK at Amazon checkout. There is also currently a 5% off coupon in the listing if you check the box.

Cautiously optimistic this may be good since I have owned other electronic products by RAVPower or TaoTronics. Only 11 reviews shown and one claims the dual charger will work with original Canon batteries. The other reason I am interested is because it will charge from USB using an external power bank. Always wished for that capability.

I have used SterlingTEK batteries in the past without major issues. So, for $20 this is hard to ignore. Will test thoroughly before using for critical assignments.

Apparently the insane part is the source for power is 5 vdc USB port, not 115 vac as we normally would charge something. Sop plugging this into something like an iPad charge might take a considerable amount of charging time, especially with two batteries.

Just get the Wasabi or STK with a double 115 vac charge and you are ahead of the game. Check this, https://www.amazon.com …ywords=wasabi+l​p-e6&psc=1 (external link), for an extra $3. If portability is your thing, it has a plug for charging off the car accessory outlet.

In the hopes that the next EOS R model continues to use this battery, and the fact that most bodies I own do as well,. I'll give it a shot!
Thanks.

I have another brand charger that uses USB, offers real time charging status (unlike canon chargers) and takes no longer than an AC unit. The AC unot's take your household 115 and convert it to a low volt DC before using that to charge the battery.

Jake, about how much time do you need to allow to charge a rather depleted single battery using your USB charger?

These batteries charge normally from AC. A car adapter may come in handy like all the others in my drawer, but not on a 6-hour flight or in the field for several days. With this charger, it states 4.5 hours to charge BOTH batteries using USB. Do you know why an external powerbank is handy?

FYI, STK = SterlingTEK

What happens when you chose to use a non Canon branded battery? I see on amazon pictures of cameras displaying a message that the battery is not technically supported, risk, blah blah blah.

Does it void the warranty ?

It was a little over 1.75 hours.

An external powerbank would be handy because it can be your portable power source. Many of these devices, perhaps most of them, have USB ports that can be connected to various devices (smartphone, tablets, etc) and supply a charge.

Uh... thanks for the news bulletin. Wouldn’t it be crazy if someone wanted to use one to charge Canon batteries and posted about it on this forum?

I'm not sure if you are being sarcastic or what? After all you did state...

Thx Jake, respectable time making the USB charger a practical consideration.

Might just be an Amazon stocking issue since it still appears on the RavPower website, unfortunately at $30. See https://www.ravpower.c​om …arging-set-for-canon.html (external link)

Thank you, NDAPhoto -- I first saw the deal here.
