Hello Rick,

It is my humble opinion...

Your camera requires power to operate. That power is supplied by batteries. There are a wide variety of batteries to choose from, some are of better quality than others.

A charger is required to charge the batteries after they are depleted. A poor quality charger can ruin your batteries and cause problems with the operation of your camera. A poor quality charger can even run high quality batteries. On the other hand, a good quality charger can often get good performance from even poorer quality cells.

As you can see, everything depends on your charger. I believe you should spend as much time researching chargers as you do researching your camera. I think you need to have a "good value" charger. For me, "good value" is first defined by performance, then by price. The cheapest priced option may not always be the best "value."

With that said, the Maha chargers have good performance records. The 401 seems to have a reputation of getting cells too hot when charged at the high rate, but it seems solid when using the lower charge rate.

How do you define "value"...?
