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 ]
