The Nikon answer is different from their answer for the forum item "What does the blinking yellow light mean?" That answer says that the yellow light blinks when charging and is solid when charging is complete. This answer matches my experience.

When charging starts, the charge lamp flashes slowly in green. About four hours and 30 minutes are required to charge a fully exhausted battery. When the battery has been completely charged, the charge lamp turns off.

I don't believe it does, mine did not. So an outlet that can accommodate the plug has to be found, which can be a pain. If sold outside the U.S. it should have an adaptor.

Question

I am planning to use the MH-61 charger to charge my EN-EL5 batteries in Tanzania.

The electric outlets in Tanzania are 220-240 volts 50 Hz with 3 rectangular prongs. Can I plug the MH-61 charger directly into a Tanzanian outlet if I have an adapter for the 3 to 2 prongs, or do I need a converter (transformer) to step the voltage down to 120 volts? The charger has written on it: INPUT: 100-240 V with 50/60 Hz written on the back. Does this mean I don't need to convert the voltage to 120V? Thank you. Alice Fagin

You will have to use an adaptor for the pin difference but apart from that it will work without other convertors.

Question

220 volts without a converter?

This charger says it is 110-220 volts and 50/60 cycle. Does that mean it can plug into a 220 plug directly (with the right adapter of course)? I have a 220-110 converter but can I plug this in to a wall with only the appropriate adapter (American 2 prong to whatever country's two or 3 prong wall adapter for instance without the converter)

The AC Adapter uses a dummy battery that goes in the battery chamber. You'll need a battery charger in order to charge the battery.

NO, the MH-61 is for the EN-EL5, for your battery you will require the MH-63.

Question

Are the prongs on the back of this/foldable?

I just got my camera a month ago and it came charged fully. I hadn't gone through the box completely when I got the camera and now I need to charge and there was no charger included and I have to purchase one. When I looked at this same Nikon brand charger on Amazon, several people commented that you would need to purchase a cord in order to use the charger? Does this unit, sold as is, not plug directly into an outlet with foldable prongs in back? I need to know so I can purchase the cord to go with it. Thanks!

I noticed that the specs on the item state that there is a cord with it? So there are probably no foldable prongs on the back.

If the light is flickering (very fast) it may be that the ambient temperature is not suited for charging or the USB cable or Charging AC adapter is not properly connected, or there is a problem with the battery. Disconnect the USB cable or unplug the Charging AC adapter and correctly connect it again, or try a back up battery.

When the MH-61 is plugged into an electrical outlet, the yellow light on the charger should glow. When the battery is inserted, the yellow light should blink slowly which is an indication that the battery is charging. When charging is completed, the light should glow.

Nikon operates factories all across the globe and each operates to the same high standard. While individual cameras are marked with their country of manufacture, we cannot make a blanket statement about the country of origin of a specific type/model of camera.
