New Battery and Older Charger…


Recommended Posts

This may be a redundant question, but would charging a NP-W126S battery in the BC-W126 charger (designed to charge the older NP-W126 battery) cause any damage to the battery?

From what I can see, the only difference between the two chargers is the output current;
…the output of the BC-W126 charger is 8.4V DC / 0.6A. 
…the output of the BC-W126S charger is 8.4V DC / 0.75A

Would it simply be that the older charger would charge the battery slower?

Thanks!

Yes, but this difference works out to be minor also because the battery capacities are indeed different, but not humongously so. I use the older charger to charge the newer batteries without any problems.

What you have to watch out for is voltage differences, these can destroy your equipment by causing overheating or outright zapping it.
