Hähnel Industries believe they have found the perfect solution with the UniPal - a universal charger with fine adjustment wheels for easy and accurate charger contact settings.

Other universal charges on the market can often be frustrating and difficult to use, having to line up the contacts using a stylus, pen or even your fingers. How is the UniPal different? You simply adjust the wheels, aligning the contacts of the UniPal with the +/-contacts of your battery. It couldn’t be easier.

When is there going to be standardisation in the meaning of flashing lights on chargers - the colour, duration of flash, and meaning of no lights on seems to be randomised across manufacturers. Isn't it about time all you battery charger R&D staff had a conference in an expensive hotel somewhere?
I'll be trying out with my multiple batteries in South America. Again, one star off until I change my mind on fiddliness and poor instructions.
Well designed and robust manufacture - all the necessary bits and pieces to meet my requirements.
Used it immediately and it more than met my expectations. Excellent value.
Bought another make which broke the first time I tried to use it.
Well done Hahnel - would not hesitate to try further products of yours.
Already in my camera bag ready for action when needed.
The charger appears to work well and is able to charge all my different camera batteries with the ability to auto detect polarity. It's not at all technical or fiddly to set up and use. I can't award 5 stars yet as I'd need to have tested over a much longer period but I don't anticipate any problems.
Incidentally, I won't charge totally flat batteries. This is because it needs to detect the polarity before charging begins. However, totally flat is something that's only achieved if the battery has been left laying about without use for a long time. Warming the battery slightly (e.g. in a trouser pocket) should 'awaken' the chemistry enough for the charger to do its stuff.
1 x Canon camera
1 x Fuji camera
2 x Blackberry
1 x iPod via usb
It charged the two different camera batteries and two different Blackberry batteries an absolute treat. No problems at all.
The genius part is the inclusion of a USB port to charge iPods and any other devices whose battery you can't remove.
I would recommend this to anybody who would normally take multiple chargers on holiday. It runs off 100-240 volts and 50-60 Hz, so no issues with use abroad.
I won't be using it to replace my normal charging at home as I often need more than one device on charge at a time, but for taking away both here and abroad it is fairly faultless.
May be OK for charging AA's & AAA's
Take note of reviews before buying this.
Given it is supposed to be made by Hahnel I am disappointed to say the least.
I smell a fake !!!!!!!!!.
I regret ordering and purchasing this as I have wasted time and money on this. Will probably end up throwing it away. If you are looking for a universal camera battery charger do not buy this one. There must be one on the market which works better.
