High dollar battery chargers, who buys them?
« on: April 15, 2012, 08:43:34 PM »
I was looking at Dolgin Engineering chargers on B&H and couldn't figure out something...

Can anyone tell who buys these $300 to $600+ chargers, and more importantly why?

While I'm sure they can charge quickly and maintain battery health, you can buy a lot of batteries and cheap chargers for the same money. So where do they make sense?

Thanks

They are for people who cannot afford the $1600 Anton Bauer :)

If you are running a busy studio with dozens of batteries to be charged, and need quick charging plus a way to quickly identify poor performing batteries, they might pay off, I'm not in that category.
