Hahnel Combi TF Wireless Remote
on 12 February 2011
First unit arrived on time from Amazon but when tested (line of sight) would not operate beyond 30mtr. This was returned and replaced by Amazon. The replacement arrived with a dud battery in the transmitter which I replaced; however, after only two brief operations within a month the battery was drained down. I contaced Hahnel via their Web Site asking if this was normal!! no reply!!! I sent a second email direct and received a reply from the UK sales manager who suggested return of the item. One month, many emails and one lost unit in post later, I eventually received a replacement from Hahnel in Ireland which - touch wood - seems to be working with the transmitter battery still going strong after two months. Problems aside, the unit is very neat & compact although you will be lucky to get advertised range even if used in line of sight. It is a little fiddly trying to replace the CR2032 transmitter battery so hope it does last a good few months. I have only given three stars; i, due to non existant customer service via the Hahnel Web Site and ii, range is below that advertised even on the replacement unit I can just get around 50mtr line of site in the open.
