Key Features

The EH-69P is an AC Adapter Charger that can be used to power select Nikon cameras from an AC power source, useful when shooting long sessions. It will also recharge the battery.

Compact, quite light weight, US plug "folds" This came with my S3100 Coolpix camera. It's a switchmode converter that puts out 5 volts up to a bit more than half an ampere. It has a USB connector, which probably means that it is much more generally useful than just for Nikon cameras. Any AC power, worldwide, will operate it; it (naturally) works on 100 volts, found in Japan, up to 240 V, in many places. Works on both 50 and 60 Hz, of course. It's wide-range; no need for a selector switch. I opened it up (voiding the warranty, for sure); inside is what's called a switch mode power converter ('power supply") that not only does the job, but is much lighter in weight than a traditional type with a 50/60 Hz AC line (mains) transformer. As well, it appears to have extraordinary protection from high-voltage AC accidents; in case of downed power lines or lightning, this device should be safer than many. It probably can isolate the USB connector from a few thousand volts on the AC mains plug; it's /very/ safe. The label on the back has an amazing variety of approval logos and related information. Included is the UL logo of Underwriters' Labs in the USA, which sets stringent safety standards. For US power outlets, the plug "folds" inside the housing ("case"), a very nice feature. It's easy to rotate it into working position. Adapters for other worldwide AC mains sockets can be removed (except in Argentina and Korea?) if you want to fold in the plug. It works just fine with the USB cable for the S3100. Mine is made in China for Nikon by Dongguan Powertec Electronics, Ltd. Quality is very good, and they plainly know what they're doing. (I'm a retired electronic tech. with engineering experience.) Another first-rate Nikon-branded product... November 18, 2011
A Way to charge your EN-EL5 Batteries I have an adapter from my previous Nikon Coolpix for these batteries. It's the Nikon MH-61 Lithium Ion Battery charger. I use it so that I can charge an extra battery outside of the camera. March 28, 2014
Very Good Camera with large stupid charger P-300 Excellent overall and I would recommend it especially for those who want more control over their camera. Great f1.8 lens at 24mm.. HOWEVER, their charger is beyond counter-intuitive! Compact charger requires long and relatively heavy and bulky multi-use cord. * for charger - **** for the camera August 15, 2011
case separated when I unplugged from wall socket Bought my Nikon Coolpix P500 about 18 months ago. Enjoy the camera, but very unhappy that my adapter/charger is not working. When I last unplugged it from the wall socket the case separated at the end where the usb plugs in, and now it won't charge. Blech. As you can see, the device isn't cheap at $40 and I'm not a happy camper that I have to replace it. Wondering how long the next one will last. May 7, 2013
not for international use At first it appears to be a nice compact charger with foldable pins and adapters to convert it to local sockets. Just fount that adapter once fixed can not be removed!!!! very clumsy when returning home you have to buy a new charger and have a charger-with-adapter you no longer can use. Also akward that you can only charge the battery in your camery, not your spare one. This charger is NOT intended for international travellers. I must advice to find a better charger (or even better cam if this is damaged by a different charger as is treatened). A disappointed NIKON fan April 8, 2013

Answer: 
That is the USB cable and that is fine, what Laurence is referring to is the cord from the adapter to the power source.
Make sure it is rated for 240 volts, if not any electronics retailer will have the correct cord. They are generic computer type power cords.

Answer: 
The EH-62A AC adapter which is the correct AC adapter for the COOLPIX P100 is able to auto switch from 100v to 240V 50hz/60hz. However, it important that you check the Voltage rating on the power cord as it may not be rated for 240V power supply and in that case you will need to purchase a new power cord that is rated for 240V for the EH-62A AC adapter.
Failure to observe this precaution could damage the product or cause overheating or fire.

Hi, I need to charge my s8200 while taking long videos. I don't want to buy something I don't need and notice that the cable for it has a USB end that fits into the little charging cube I use to charge my iphone and other Apple products. Could I just plug the cable that came with my camera into this wall charger and safely power my camera and charge the battery?

THanks,
K.

Answer: 
The correct AC adapter for the S8200 is the EH-62F. You can find more info on the EH-62F here: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Pr...

The use of Non-Nikon Electronic Accessories could damage your camera and void your warranty.

Answer: 
No you cannot do it that way, it is a special adapter that plugs into the battery chamber. It is Nikon EH-62F, it costs around $25.00.

Is this charger useable from 100-240v or just the U.S. 100-120? If it is only up to 120, is there a European version I can get? (I'm seriously considering the Coolpix P500, which comes with this charger, but I travel often to Europe and need a camera with a battery I can charge there too).

Answer: 
Yes, all Nikon Coolpix cameras have an auto switching (from 100v to 240V 50hz/60hz) battery charger that will work in most countries around the world. AC adapters have similar characteristics. Always check the specification plate on your other battery chargers or AC adapters as third party products may not support dual voltage systems. We do not suggest the use of third party battery chargers and AC adapters with Nikon equipment.

Note that the power cord included with some Nikon chargers or AC adapter is designed for 110 volt use only. A power cord suitable for the local power system should be obtained on arrival, most airport shops and computer suppliers will carry these items which are typically used for laptop computer power supply connections. Be sure that the new cord you buy fits the Nikon adapter you wish to use it with and that it is rated for the voltage in your new location. While not recommended, a simple plug adapter may be used, but caution should be taken as the cord Nikon supplies is not rated for the higher voltage and may heat or fail.

Some newer Coolpix have included an AC Adapter, for plugging directly into a wall outlet without the use of a power cord. As with previous chargers, the correct adapter must be acquired for the country traveled to, and fitted to the Nikon AC adapter to allow proper AC connection to the wall outlet.

I bought a camera with this adapter while in the US but have since moved home. I was told I may need to purchase a transformer as the voltages are different and I'd risk damaging the battery but I have also been told I'd just need an adapter.
