Replacement Battery Charger for K-5Ii and K-3II

OK, I know this sounds stupid but, I misplaced my k-5II battery charger. I've been looking for an original unit to replace it but can't find one on eBay. So now I'm looking for a replacement brand that can do the job. Can anyone give some suggestions? Thanks

I have recently bought one from Amazon. Newmowa brand, USB powered and comes with 2 x replacement batteries. Less that $30.00 Au. Worth it just for the charger alone.

I've purchased a couple aftermarket chargers (Kastar, etc) from ebay for less than US $10 for my K-5 and K10D. They both work fine, no problems after years of use.

I'm in the Philippines and Amazon might not ship here. I can only find wasabi. Does anybody have experience with this brand?

See what you think of this. Unipal Plus

Although the ad is EU-centric I know Hahnel sells in other countries.

CR Kennedy in Australia might be worth trying? sales@crkennedy.com.au

A more versatile solution.

Circa 2013, I bought a Pearstone Compact Charger from B&H Photo. It works fine with any D-Li90 battery. I prefer it to the original Pentax charger since it has a built-in folding plug & is pocket-able. I think Pearstone was B&H's store brand at the time.

I like the Wasabi charger better than the Pentax. Unlike the Pentax which is only AC powered, the Wasabi is a AC/DC combination charger. Really nice to be able to charge batteries while driving down the road, especially if one is out on an extended adventure without electricity being readily available. I use the Wasabi batteries in rotation with the OEM Pentax batteries and frankly can't tell any difference.

Thanks guys. As I stated earlier I already purchased theNewmowa dual battery charger. As stupid as I get, I found my original charger. So now I'll have a new dual charger. I think I'll enjoy it.

So I got the charger. Well it didn't come with a power supply or a wall charger. I read the package and yes it didn't include a power supply or a wall charger.

Can I use a cellphone charger for this? Thanks.

I got a similar charger with 2 batteries that can charge both at once and runs off USB. Since I have a 4 outlet USB charger for all my stuff when I travel, this is the best option for me.

The only thing I need to check is whether it charges the batteries full enough to let the K1 do a software update. Some of my K7 and K5 batteries, even fully charged canít let the K1 perform an update
