The charger is a little larger than the original Canon NB-5L charger, but still small enough to travel with. Took it on my recent vacation cruise to Spain and Italy to use with my new Canon SD230IS Camera. Did not have any problems. Charger fits all NB-5L batteries, including the original Canon battery that came with the camera. Battery lasted most of a long day, taking frequent pictures. Had to change battery once. Battery has extended life - 1400mAh vs 1120 of Canon's original. Was very satisfied, overall, with both items. Great value. Thanks Overstock!

No problems with this charger and battery for the Cannon cameras. Great for on the road charging ! Perfect for anyone looking for a great priced charger. Overstocks finest priced for the Cannon cameras Would highly reccomend these to anyone.
There are two parts to this item. The charger, which I have only used once, seems to work fine. It is far bulkier than the one that came with my camera but it is very cheap and seems to work reasonably well. I have know way of knowing how long it will last nor whether it charges as efficiently as the Canon one but it appears to fill the bill. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the battery which is completely useless. Oddly enough, the battery that came in my package bore no resemblence to the one in my camera. As a consequence I initially thought that Overstock had sent me the entirely wrong device. As it turns out all they sent me was a random battery. It fits neither my camera nor the charger they sent. After a fairly long series of emails describing in detail what Overstock was doing to obtain the correct battery I was notified that it was shipping on the 14th of December. It is now the 25th and I still don't have it, so I decided to check the tracking information I was given. It turns out that Overstock sent the package to some random address in West Palm Beach, FL. . .a community I have never visited, and therefore an address I never provided. It is very disappointing to find that this company, from which I have purchased many times in the past, seems to have lost interest in providing the follow through service I used to expect. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to get this mess cleaned up.

I lost my old camera battery charger and thought I'be be spending a lot for this little device. $$$, that's all it was and it came with an adaptor for the car. I got more than expected for the money.

This was better than the Canon charger that came with camera it also gives the ability to charge in the car, and having a spare battery is a real plus.

This was a great purchase for me. I was only looking for a camera battery charger, but I got a charger, an extra battery, and an adapter to plug the charger into my car's cigarette lighter, all for less than $$$. It took about a week to arrive and it's been trouble-free the whole time.

Left the battery charger for our canon camera in a hotel room while on vacation and was so pleased to find this one - it was much cheaper than all of the other similar products we found online but decided to risk it and order this one. Thrilled with the quality - not only does the charger work well - it also includes an additional battery and car charger.

Im asbsolutely pleased with my recent purchase of the Canon NB-5L Battery & Charger. I've have been shopping for one for almost 2 months and none of the electronic stores sold them or had any in stock. And if they did it costed much much more than what I wanted to spend. I decided to check Overstock, just on a whim and low and behold it was available. Not to mention the price was unbelievably inexpensive!!
Bought this battery as a spare and/or backup for an ELPH 880. Holds a charge just as long as the Canon-branded battery that came with the camera -- maybe longer, as it hasn't yet shown signs of draining after two weeks' intermittent use. The charger can also be used while literally on the road, as it includes a car adapter. Don't know how much it'll be needed, but it's a nice extra.
