Re: Can I use the battery charger BC-400 overseas?

No, you cannot. This is due, not only to the shape of the plug, but also to the fact that the AC cable for BC-400 do not comply with overseas regulations. Though the label on BC-400 indicates the voltage rating (100-240V), the durability of the power cord for each type of BC-400 differs respectively. Minolta has no responsibility for any damage or loss incurred by use of AC adapter or BC-400 not warranted in the region. The mentioned electric cords may not be inseted to the power receptacle. In this case please obtain the transform adaptor at the local dealers. (Please be noted that especially in China there are 5 or 6 types of plug .) Warning: Please be careful when pulling in/out the cord from the power receptacle for the electric shock prevention.

Battery charging


Depends on how much the battery is in use, and how much battery life is left.
If it's relatively new (3 years old) and fully empty, it could be full by 2 hours - 2 h 30 min. If it gets really hot before that time, it's full by then.

What are the differences in Nikon 'overseas' models as US models?


It depends. Nikon USA has a strong tendency to not honor warranties originating in other countries. If you feel you don't need the warranty, go for it.

There shouldn't be any differences in the batteries themselves. The chargers, of course, are adapted to the local voltage and outlet configuration.

Can the BC-NH01 battery charger also charge AAA


In reality, yes. The AAA batteries are to short for the charger, so some fiddling is required. I'd recommend you buy a suitable multicharger instead.

Cannot find my instruction manual. can you charge the battery on the computer using the usb cable?


No, the battery cannot be charged using the USB cable. You need the supplied battery charger. If you've lost it, you'll have to buy a BC-CSK or BC-CSKA charger from Sony.

I don't have a charger.


You need either the AC-LS5 power adapter which plugs into the back of the camera to charge the battery when it's in the camera, or better still a Sony BC-VC10. The latter item charges up to two batteries at once leaving the camera free for use.

There are third party chargers available but I've found out the hard way that they often either take forever to charge the battery or at worst damage the InfoLithium chip inside the battery. As genuine batteries are expensive and the genuine charger costs less than a single battery it's both a gamble and a false economy to use anything else.

I hope that you've found my posting to be of use and ask in return only that you take a moment to rate my answer.

I've provided links to the BC-VC10 below and further down to the cheaper AC-LS5. I'm not suggesting that you use these suppliers, just that you use the links to give you a starting point to shop around for yourself:-

Amazon BC-VC10

Using battery charger overseas


it's alway suggested that you simply use plug adaptors to change shape of plugs for overseas-do not reduce voltage since most all chargers including yours support 220 or 110

Overseas Use


If this is true, then why does the manual for my new PowerShot SD1100 IS say, "Do not connect compact power adapters or battery chargers to devices such as electrical transformers for foreign travel because it may lead to malfunctions, excessive heat generation, fire, electric shock or injury."

Is this just a standard disclaimer in case something weird happens by using a transformer to charge the battery?

Overseas Use


Yes. The power supplies and battery chargers supplied with all Powershot Digital Cameras are designed to work on input voltages from 100-240 volts (50/60 Hz). The only item that you may need is a plug adapter that allows you to plug the U.S. type power supply or battery charger into the foreign type wall outlet. Plug adapters should be easily available at a local electronics store.
