Summary: There is one reason I'm giving the lowest rate possible: I have had two cameras (same model) and both have stopped charging the battery after a few months. Why bother buying a handheld camera that you have to use with an energy cable attached all the time? Update: I finally got the second camera to charge the battery. I left the camera a whole day connected and the battery didn't charge. Today I tried something different: I reset the camera and it started charging again.
