MH-18a Quick Charger 3.3 5 3 3
In response to the person from Columbia, SC To the person in Columbia, SC that gave the negative review. The MH-18a charger is the correct charger for your EN-EL3e battery. It sounds like your issue is the battery pack itself not the charger. I am a camera tech for a large photography company (200 plus traveling studios), we use this charger and battery combo in every studio. I have had a few of these batteries that have failed recently and they are doing this exact same thing. Charger blinks for a short time then goes back to a solid light. Of the three contact points on the battery pack, only two are actually "charge points". If you look at the battery you will see the contacts are labeled as + - and "S". The S contact is the center contact, it is NOT used for charging the battery. April 4, 2011
It works fine with a D80 Why would Nikon sell/advertise this charger for the D80 if it did not work with it? This is a good charger, however if you leave your battery out too long and it becomes undercharged, this charger will blink 5 times (I think 4 but whatever) and not charge the battery. Luckily for me I have a special universal charger, and gave it a quick initial charge, and now the MH-18a is good to go. Take care of your batteries, and your batteries will take care of you. October 23, 2011
Does not work with D80! I was really anxious to receive my charger from Amazon to begin using my D80 again after not being able to find the original battery charger for months. After inserting the battery in the new charger, the charger blinked about 5 times then Immediately displayed a solid amber light. This happened every time I inserted the battery.I left the battery in the charger over night. STILL NOT CHARGED! I then noticed that the D80 battery has three chargeable points of contact but the charger itself only has two!!! Returning it today!!!! March 18, 2011

I Have the MH18a charger with a cable labeled US 125V, yet the specifications engraved on the cable say 300V FT2 "LF" LINETEK CSA LL90989SPT-2 2/C 13AWG10.924mm2. Can you please confirm that I can use this cable with 220V with the plug adapter. Thank you

For any future people looking for answers, yes you can use the cable with an adapter to the 220V plug. I am using one right now with no problems.

Answer: 
You should be fine. The charger states that it is good with 120-240V systems. Just have the proper plug converter and you should be fine.

The MH-18a charger and battery is a bit more than two years old. But I can't get the battery to charge. We are in Puerto Vallarta on a holiday. The camera and battery were bought in Edmonton, Alberta.

Answer: 
You only need two hours and 15 minutes in order to have a fully charge battery, once this is completed the charge lamp should stop blinking and stays a solid light. If the charge lamp is flickering that means that the battery is set incorrectly or the battery is faulty.

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

Note that the cord included with the Nikon charger or A/C 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 conmputer 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.

If I read well the input capacity on the back of the MH-18a Nikon Quick Charger, I can use it either with110v or 220v. Is this right? There is no room for mistakes!
The Guide does not say a word about this.

Can MH-18a be charged via USB rather relying solely on AC 110v. I have a solar powered rechargeable pack (Brunton) to recharge electronics such as cellphones and Ipods. This would allow me to recharge electronics out in the field.

i am having some issues with my charger. It was fine at noon and now i don't seem to see any light to indicate it's charging.

All i know was, i was charging it on an extension cord and i fixed the vacuum cleaner on another socket. Could it have caused anything?

Is there a fuse or something to change or the charger is spoilt?
