You do know the 1 series battery chargers only charge one battery at a time?  The first one has to finish charging before the second one starts.  The only thing you save is you can plug in both batteries at the same time.  But you save no charging time!


Seriously?  What good is that?  At least you don't have stand over it lke a pizza oven tender.

Seriously!  It's true, and it is also true with brand-N dual chargers.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!

Possibly it's a power consumption issue. It might draw too many amps (and therefore overheat or blow a fuse) if it tried to charge both batteries at once.

Power consumption is a possibility.  Another is cost.  Doubling up the circuitry shouldn't be a major issue, but the Canon sellling price for such a device could be an issue.
