I seemed to have miss-placed the battery charger for my MX-1, I wondered if anyone has tried any of the 3rd party charger and would recommend one.

I don't really want to by a new Pentax one for £40, as my one will probably turn up at some point.

Thank you,

I've had 3rd party chargers for other camera's and they've functioned perfectly.

I use a Hahnel unipal plus charger - great for a variety of batteries including my DLi90's, Ricoh GR batteries, etc. (you'll need to check yours is the right type for it).

Probably a bit dearer than you'd like (low £20's to £30+ depending where you get it) but once you've got it you'll probably use it for several types of battery and never need all those other dedicated chargers.

It is interesting to note that this charger has only 2 contacts, whereas the Pentax chargers and cameras have 4**. Are the extra 2 contacts part of a monitoring circuit or something to prevent over-charging perhaps?

(** Correction. The Pentax MX-1's charger has 3 contacts.)

Just checked mine and it has just 2 contacts, but as mentioned it works perfectly and has done as long as I've had the camera (approx 2 years).

realmente hay muchos que pueden funcionar, la cosa es revisar bien la cantidad de voltaje que transmite y las especificaciones que tiene para asi no dañar el aparato

Google translation: there are really many that can work, the thing is to check the amount of voltage it transmits and the specifications it has so as not to damage the device

Please post in English to avoid confusion. Many thanks.
Best regards, John
