Press Release:Hahnel Twin V Pro

Hähnel industries, one of the leading battery and charger manufacturers in Europe, has now expanded their range of Chargers.

The Twin V Pro for digital SLR Li-Ion batteries was introduced as a prototype at Photokina 2006, and will be launched onto the market within the coming weeks.

The charger has interchangeable contact plates for all batteries of the camera models mentioned below.

1 or 2 batteries can be charged at any one time.

The Twin V Pro comes in 4 different versions and is suitable for batteries from the following cameras:-

  • Version C – for Canon Digital SLR Camera models:- EOS 400D / 350D / 30D / 20D / 5D
  • Version N – for Nikon Digital SLR Camera models:- D70S / D80 / D200 / D40 / D50 / D70 / D100
  • Version SPL – for Sony / Panasonic /Leica Digital SLR Camera models:- Alpha DSLR-A100 / 100K / DMC-L1 / Digilux 3
  • Version OSP – for Olympus / Samsung / Pentax Digital SLR Camera models:- E-400 / E-300 / E-330 / E-500 / E-1 / GX10 / KD10D

Each battery compartment has its own independant micro-chip regulated charge control with a sophisticated LCD info display. There is a Separate LCD display for each battery. The LCD displays indicate the charging progress (5 steps 0-100%) as well as other functions including battery full, battery defect and over heating switch off. When the Twin V Pro is not connected to power the charger provides a battery testing facility. The LCD screen will display the charge level of the battery.

Other impressive features of the Twin V Pro include battery overheating protection, variable charge current (depending on battery) and multivoltage switch mode power supply 100-240V - for world wide use. Charging time differs depending on battery capacity, but will vary from less than 1 hour for 1 battery to approximately 2 hours for 2 batteries. The Twin V Pro also comes with a 12V DC input with car lead.

The charger has modern, slim-line housing with a slide out rotating cover, which converts to a stand up charger support. This compactness allows maximum space in camera bags and makes it the ideal travel companion.

The Twin V Pro will be appearing in camera shops from the end of May / June 2007 and will be the ideal power solution for the ambitious user of Digital SLR Cameras.

Hmmmmm... Usual story. See something that tickles your interest... go to the manufacturers site and type the product name in their search facilities only to be greeted with the response -

Sorry, there is nothing matching your search criteria. Please try a different search

Can we at least verify with the manufacturer that the products are available when the PR is released.

MOST frustrating...
