MH-61 Battery Charger 2.3 5 4 4
Using MH-61 charger This charger works just fine and there is nothing to complain about. It's fast and reliable. Few words about light indicator: glows (battery not inserted) - charger plugged in, ready to work blinking (battery inserted) - battery recharging glows (battery inserted) - charging is complete, battery is full, ready to be removed flickers (battery inserted) - temperature is outside the designated range or there is a battery malfunction - unplug the charger immediately! March 1, 2012
Easy to use The Nikon MH-61 battery charger seems easy to use. However, I would have liked to have a little more documentation with the product -- for example, an explanation of what the color of the light indicator means. March 27, 2011
This is old school type charger First, I can't believe Nikon didn't already include this with the camera, instead they supplied a charger that connects directly to the camera and then the outlet. And when I travel with this camera I won't want to have to plug the camera into an outlet, I'd rather just plug the battery into the outlet to charge.. Also, I cannot believe Nikon did not have the foresight to include a charger that had extendible outlet prongs instead of going with a separate cord attaching to the charger....more to lose and possibility of mixing up cords and chargers.... Very disappointed in Nikon December 8, 2012
Great package, would like to know what happens when no lights light. I like the review from 'elp'. There is one setting that is not described. What happens when there are NO indicators lit? I happen to have two of these chargers and I always pick up the wrong one. I think this means the power supply inside the unit is dead. Since I can't get into the unit, I can't troubleshoot the power supply. The other unit I give 5 stars to as it does work. This one does not. Forgot how I came across the 'bad' unit, but I am in the process of hacking it appart to see what makes it tick. More later when I find the problem. Probably a 'fuse' that opened when something shorted the output pins. June 29, 2012

I just got my camera a month ago and it came charged fully. I hadn't gone through the box completely when I got the camera and now I need to charge and there was no charger included and I have to purchase one. When I looked at this same Nikon brand charger on Amazon, several people commented that you would need to purchase a cord in order to use the charger? Does this unit, sold as is, not plug directly into an outlet with foldable prongs in back? I need to know so I can purchase the cord to go with it. Thanks!

Answer: 
I noticed that the specs on the item state that there is a cord with it? So there are probably no foldable prongs on the back.

Answer: 
If the light is flickering (very fast) it may be that the ambient temperature is not suited for charging or the USB cable or Charging AC adapter is not properly connected, or there is a problem with the battery. Disconnect the USB cable or unplug the Charging AC adapter and correctly connect it again, or try a back up battery.

Answer: 
When the MH-61 is plugged into an electrical outlet, the yellow light on the charger should glow. When the battery is inserted, the yellow light should blink slowly which is an indication that the battery is charging. When charging is completed, the light should glow.

Answer: 
Nikon operates factories all across the globe and each operates to the same high standard. While individual cameras are marked with their country of manufacture, we cannot make a blanket statement about the country of origin of a specific type/model of camera.
