SZ-30MR - 3 Cruiseships in Town - UC-50 Charger
Feb 12, 2012

I had ordered the Li-50C battery charger, and three weeks later I still had not heard about it - so I had an excuse to go into town and enquire in person.

It was a beautyful day to take my SZ-30MR for an outing - so here is the video in HD720p -

It turned out there were three cruiseships in town all at the same time, and I cannot remember any day where this happened before.

I also took some stills, here is my ferry aproaching -

Here is parts of two cruiseships and a whole one in the middle -

As to the charger - the Li-50C no longer exists, which is how my order got stuck. The UC-50 has taken its place - at the same price.

The UC-50 has a mains to DC converter with a USB-2 socket, looking almost the same as that which came with the SZ-30MR (and the Stylus 9010). But instead of the USB cable, you get a module that accepts the battery.

The UC-50 appears to be able to test the battery as it is charging. I have a suspect Uniross Li-50B which caused the LED in the new charger to blink. I repeated the charging a day later, and this time it worked. I also put my three healthy batteries on a top-up charge.

Having sorted out why my Li-50C charger had not shown up, I took one last picture of the three cruiseships on the way home -
