    Sorry for the newbie question. I searched sony espupport and also a forum search for battery and couldnt find an answer. Anyone have a rought estimate on how long it takes to charge the battery from empty to full?

    With usb cable... Hours like 6 if I remember correctly
    First option I got was an external wall charger and extra battery. Now it's quicker...
    Edit : that's with the wall adapter, using the external charger it's 2 hours max.

    I think my Nex-5 takes about 4 hours to fully charge...

    My batteries take 3-4 hours to get fully charged with a separate Sony wall charger. I never measured the time for charging in the NEX-6; I don't know if the charging time in the NEX-6 depends on the power source of the USB connection.

    Mine takes about 3.5 hours with the wall charger.

    My external charger says it outputs at 600mA

    So you can work out roughly how long it would take a battery to charge - in my case approx 2 hours
