I've been looking into the Bronine Battery Charging System.  Bronine Charging Systems

The idea seems great. It's a modular system that can charge up to 4 batteries simultaneously (NOT sequentiially). It can charge batteries from different cameras or systems at the same time, and they promote that it's faster.  Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find much in the way of independent research or reviews yet as it seems like it is perhaps a newer product.

Has anyone here used the system yet? If so, would you share your views on it? Even if you haven't used the system, have you heard anything about it?

Thanks!

There's no reason from an electrical engineering standpoint why their claims wouldn't be true. It's not at all ahrd to design a charger that can charge 4 devices simultaneously, even if they require different charge voltages or currents. The only thing is that it may take longer to charge 4 devices attached than it would a single one but it would still be faster than charging 4 devices all one after another.

Excellent. Thanks E.J.!

Are you familiar with Bronine, have you heard anything good or bad about them?

This looks interesting but I find it odd that they don’t offer a charger for what is Nikons most popular battery, the EN-EL15.

I thought they did, but it was out of stock.  I could be wrong though.

They don’t list it on their site. I sent an email but have not heard back as yet.

Bronine Charge late for En-EL15
[font=tahoma, sans-serif]Here's the listing in B&H for the EN-EL15.  It's out of stock. You might want to contact B&H and ask them if they will get any more of them. I can't imagine why Bronine wouldn't make them any longer.[/font]
