Hi Antonio,

Since you only shoot 3 times a year, you really don't need a duel charger.
While it might be a little more convienient it you won't use it enough to make it worth your effort to find one. It takes less than two hours to charge a fully depleted battery and is not much effort to switch them out.
If you charge the batteries the night before you need them you might not even need a back up battery.

From my point of view $40.00 for a battery is dirt cheap.
At least compared to the EN-EL4a ($110.00), and EN-EL18 ($154.00) .

>$300 is way too much for my actual needs, plus the fact that
>it only charges one at time even though it is a dual charger
>it makes no sence.

Neither one will charge your EN-EL9a anyway.

Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
