    Is there a dual charger that can accommodate both the BLN-1 and BLS-1? I found an old thread that advertised a Watson dual charger but those don't seem to ship Australia.

    I have a mixture of original and 3rd party batteries for each type, so I understand it may not charge the originals fully, but that's OK. Or am I going to be better off using two separate chargers?

    The only one I have seen (and own) is the Hahnel pro cube. It does BLN-1 & BLS-5 as well as two Sony batteries that I recently purchased from DigiDirect in Sydney. Hahnel may make other combinations not sure. This one seems to change OK as well. Maybe a brand worth looking into as they make a universal charger where you can move the contacts.

    I agree with "Retired from Life". The Hahnel Plus Universalis all that you need. It is quick and handles BLN-1 and BLS-5 batteries. It also charges AA, AAA and USB. I've owned it a few years and used on 4-5 overseas and local trips. Works great. Recommended.
