Hahnel batteries

I have just bought two hahnel batteries for my xpro. I got them from premier ink. They seem very good, i have charged them both, tried them, all seems ok. They were £17.99 each which is a lot cheaper than the genuine fuji batteries.

Has anyone used hahnel batteries, do they hold their charge ?

Re: Hahnel batteries

Yes, Woody. Every bit as good as the OEM batteries in my experience. I have only one but it is 12% more powerful and holds its charge equally well. Both the OEM battery and the Hahnel remain in top condition after nearly 4 years and approximately 12K shots each (wear/usage indicators still the same as new). This is for my D300s. I would have bought Hahnel for the D800 but they were not available at the time I bought the camera.

The batteries for the D800 (both OEM) were another story but I think I have tied their problem down to the charger. An interesting point is that it seems that it is the charger that sets the condition of the battery not the battery chip. In this respect I might be wary of 3rd party battery chargers. Many (Hahnel included) only have the 2 pins needed for the voltage. I have read somewhere that the 3rd pin is used for some kind of feedback that determines the state of the battery - can't guarantee this though but it sounds logical.

Re: Hahnel batteries

Hi Woody, I have always used Hahnel as my backup batteries for years in my series 1 Canons, they last just as well as OE batteries for day long sessions, they retain the charge for as long and they cost about half as much. They work with the Canon charger both charging and "conditioning" . Over the years I have several variants as I changed to the current camera so they seem good over the range.
Charles.

Re: Hahnel batteries

Had one with a second hand 10D. Held charge really well, only bad thing is after about 5 years - I lost it. Seems as good as the Canon one I had with the 50D. Used both till I lost the old one.

Re: Hahnel batteries

I always use non om batteries and have only had one fail after about 2 years . Must have had a dozen or so over the years and as they typically cost 50% of om batteries that was no problem
