Wasabi Power Dual Battery Charger for Nikon MH-26, MH-26aAK, EN-EL18, EN-EL18a, EN-EL18b (with Adapter for Canon LP-E4, LP-E4N)
I forgot while selling all my bodies that I did not have a charger left to charge the D4 d5 batteries. With having so many chargers I sold off some on eBay for around $250.00. I had one last body left and no charger I scrambled to get a charger borrowing (this) Nikon OEM charger from https://stevensobelstudios.com in Orlando. So decided to do a side by side.
The features and curves and materials all feel the same. The cord is a little thinner included with the wasabi but the functionality seems identical.
Calibration has the wasabi nikon D4 oem batter a little warmer to the touch than the Nikon OEM but the chargers themselves are the same temperature.

Nitecore D4: The world’s most advanced fully-automatic digital charger. It’s as simple as insert, detect and charge.
The Nitecore D4 is an universal smart charger compatible with almost all cylindrical rechargeable batteries, thus eliminating the need to own several chargers. The D4 automatically detects Li-ion, Ni-MH and NiCd batteries, and through manual selection is also capable of charging LiFePO4 batteries. Intelligent charging circuitry selects the optimal charging mode (CC, CV and dV/dt) for a given battery and each of the D4’s four microcomputer-controlled charging slots then monitors and charges the battery independently. Furthermore, an integrated digital LCD screen clearly displays charging progress, voltage, current and time while an intelligent automatic power-off function terminates current when charging is complete.
– Capable of charging 4 batteries simultaneously, each of the 4 battery slots monitors and charges independently
– Compatible with and identifies Li-ion, Ni-MH and Ni-Cd rechargeable batteries, LiFePO4 (Lithium iron phosphate) batteries require manual selection
– Optimized charging design for IMR batteries and small capacity batteries
– Integrated LCD panel clearly displays charging parameters and progress
– Intelligent circuitry detects the battery type and status before entering automatic charge mode (CC, CV, dV/dt)
– 2 conveniently located side buttons allow easy selection of specific battery types and charging parameters
– Automatically stops charging when the battery is full
– Features reverse polarity protection / over-charge protection / temperature monitoring
– Thoughtful overnight charging function, turning off the LCD backlight to eliminate disturbance at night
– Made of flame resistant ABS, which is designed for optimal heat dissipation
