Developed a fault after a few weeksProduct started off really well until after a few weeks I noticed the charger light wouldn't go out after charging for a few hours. Nevertheless I kept it with the spare battery in my pocket until the current battery was exhausted, then swapped the batteries only to find the one that was sitting in the portable charger was also exhausted.
After running some tests on the charger I'm finding that it is charging the battery, but at the same time it's also discharging the battery a little.

Elegant solutionThis charger is about the size of the battery in girth and about 1” longer than the battery in length. The case slides open and the battery goes inside. Shut the case, plug the USB cable (that came with the camera) into the USB adapter (that also came with the camera) into the end of the charger and the battery starts charging with an indicator light showing it’s charging. When the battery is charged, the light goes out. Super compact design and it works. Charged a partially discharged battery in about an hour.
So now a word about the gripes that the RX 100 cameras came with no external charger. So What? People say you can’t use the camera while the battery is charging inside the camera. Well, my Olympus Stylus 1 came with an external charger and guess what? I can’t use the camera when the battery is charging in the external charger! So what’s the solution? A spare battery AND an external charger. The ACCTRDCX Travel DC Charger Kit fills the bill quite well in a very compact package…and it comes with a spare battery.
