Re: A77 Travel Charger - 2 pins not 3 - Risk?

I think the 3rd pin in the Sony chargers may be a data line (Info-Lithium) to determine the charge and health status. I had a Sony charger reject a "dead" battery that a 3rd-party charger revived. I also had an original battery with a dead chip that camera and Sony charger rejected but which charged fine in the 3rd party charger. It's still a dud since the camera doesn't recognize it.
