Was charging my original Nikon D70 battery this morning when after about 2hr, saw the light goes off.
This is not normal as a fully charged battery should still have the green LED light on.
Upon checking , saw the power adapter plastic is kind of like melted and deformed slightly.
Also realise there is liquid leaking out from the adaptor.
Quickly check on the battery, luckily it still ok and fully charged.
Check my warranty for the charger and found out that the warranty has just ended 1 month and 10 days ago. Tough Luck !
Wonder has anyone encounter this problem before ?
Although the warranty is for 1 yr but never expect it to fail so soon just after the warranty ends.
Have to comfort myself that luckily the slightly melted adaptor did not lead to any electrical spark which may cause fire.
What if it is in the middle of the nigh....
Also luckily this fault happen before I goes for my trip to Hokkaido next Wed.
Can't imagine if in the middle of the trip and finds that the charger has failed....
Seems like now beside bringing spare battery and camara for a trip, also need to bring spare charger !
In fact I really like this charger as it can charge two battery at the same time and also can charge my Sony battery.
It a very convenient tool to have for going on a trip.
Not sure can EastGear do a FOC repair or exchange as this happen just 1 month after warranty ends.
Anyone with similar experience ?
