Nikon MH-61 Charger - Did the job!

Erick from Washington, NJ on 6/29/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this charger from Crutchfield because they have great service and because it's a Nikon product. I didn't give it 5 stars because when I first plugged the battery in, I left it charge for several hours but it didn't actually charge. I took the battery out and re-seated it in the charger and then it charged. I don't know if it wasn't seated properly or if there was an issue with the battery as it was completely drained. The 2nd attempt worked. I left it charge for a couple hours and it worked when I put it back in the camera.

Pros: Easy to use. Charging light lets you know if its charging or not. Unit is compact and came with cable.

Cons: Would rather be able to charge the battery in the camera but this works.

No, the Nikon MH-61 Battery Charger is for the Nikon EN-EL5 battery. The charger for the Nikon EN-EL8 battery is the Nikon MH-62 Battery Charger. [ MATT  Dec 10, 2015 ]
It is not. We show the MH-62 as being the correct charger for that battery. Unfortunately we show the MH-62 is discontinued. You may still be able to get it directly from Nikon though. [ Jeff  Dec 09, 2015 ]  Staff
