if you insert your battery properly this charger works well but this is quite difficult to do. a lot off fiddling around is necessary. surely sony could have done better than is.




Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The Sony BC-TRX battery charger is designed to charge many of the batteries used in Sony CyberShot cameras. It can accommodate several different series of batteries. It also comes with a USB cable that allows you to charge some cameras that charge via micro USB.

Compatibility: The battery charger can be used to charge Sony InfoLithium X, N, G, D, T, R, and K-series batteries. It should not be used to charge Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cad) or Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. (See below for specific compatible batteries and charging times.)

Retractable AC Plugs: The Sony BC-TRX has a folding 2-prong AC plug on the back of the unit.

USB Output: The charger has a Type A USB port that can be used with the supplied USB cable to power or charge devices that have a micro USB port. A switch on the charger lets you switch between battery charge and USB power.

Charging Indicators: The BC-TRX features 4 charging status indicator lamps, so you can easily view the progress and status of your battery's charge. One LED indicates whether or not the battery is charging, and the remaining three LEDs indicate the level of the charge: 0 LEDs=0-30% charge, 1 LED=30-60% charge, 2 LEDs=60-90% charge, and 3 LEDs=90% - full charge.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

The original charger that came with the camera will not charge the battery I recently bought. I researched this one and it charges both the original battery (Sony NP-BN) plus the one I recently bought (Sony NP-BN1). [ Michael  May 05, 2016 ]
Because I bought the Sony HX-400V camera from you. And in the past you've been dependable. Note that I could have purchased this item at a $15 savings but I'll go with the higher price with a proven company with a good record, that's you guys...Kenny [ Kenneth  Mar 07, 2016 ]
I looked up on Sony website. [ Rosinete  Feb 21, 2016 ]
