When we bought our Nikon Coolpix S900 camera (review on this posted in January) it came with this AC adapter. I love the camera and I think this power adapter is very handy too. Now, I don't profess to be very technologically minded so this review is not going to be that technical but if you're like me sometimes you just want to read a technology review that says something along the lines of, "the thingamajig plugs into the funny looking hole thing in the side of the computer and hey presto, it works,." Simple instructions yes, but for us normal folk easy to understand and way more simple than reading a review containing lots of tech speak, scary looking numbers and information that just has you saying,"what?"
Over the years we have had a number of cameras, video cameras, digital photo frames etc and so have amassed a huge number of cables, plugs, chargers etc. These take up so much space in our side draw and I can never tell which lead goes with which item and so when I want to charge something or transfer it to the computer It takes me ages and I usually just give up whilst cursing said draw.
This is why I love this Nikon EH 69P AC adapter. One wire, with one plug that does a number of different things. Firstly, the wire has a plug at the end of it which you can use to charge specific COOLPIX cameras directly from an AC outlet. It is not only my camera the S900 that this charger works on but lots of other versions of the Nixkon Coolpix cameras as well so I suppose this charger would be quite handy to still have around if we ever upgraded our camera.
On the Nikon camera itself there is a little space with a flap over it and this is where you plug in this power adaptor. The hole is quite small but it slots into the camera well and only takes an hour or less to fully charge the camera which I think is great.
This lead also allows you to plug it straight into your computer via the USB port so it makes downloading photos from your camera onto your laptop really easy. We have an apple laptop and you just plug the other end of this cable into the left hand side of the laptop and iPhoto will do the rest for you. Then when you have finished, simply pop the wire back into the plug to make sure you keep the wire altogether.
We are also able with this adapter, to charge our camera from the computer using the USB cable as well.
So you see, even for someone technically challenged like me this is a very simple piece of equipment to use and have.
