Hahnel Pro Cube 2 battery charger review

Hӓhnel Pro Cube 2 – approx £69.99

By David Watson

I use the Lumix GH5 and have used the GH3 and GH4 previously. It’s good to see that Panasonic has stuck with the same DMW-BLF19E battery and not changed it needlessly with every new GH camera. I have 3 of the DMW-BLF19E batteries and always try to keep them charged and ready. I timed how long it takes to fully charge an empty battery – 3 hours and 7 mins. If I have all 3 to charge it can take almost all day to keep an eye on the charger and charge them all.

I was fortunate to win a Hӓhnel Pro Cube 2 charger in a recent Photo Challenge.

The charger comes with a power plug with adapters for UK, European, US sockets and a car power socket adapter. It takes changeable battery plates for Panasonic DMW-BLC12, BLF19 and BLG10 batteries and a plate for AA batteries. It also has a USB charging port.

I did a test and it full charged an empty GH5 battery in a fast 1 hour 4 mins, but the big win is it can charge 2 batteries at the same time.

So I am very happy with the Pro Cube 2 charger, it will make charging my GH5 batteries much quicker and easier.

Here are my pros and cons

Pros

  • Fast charge 1 or 2 batteries simultaneously
  • Charge level gauge
  • USB charge socket
  • Charge AA batteries
  • Plug adapters for UK, European and USA sockets
  • Car power socket adapter

Cons

  • Only one USB socket
  • No AAA charge plate
  • Can’t just charge just 1 or 2 AA batteries, must be a set of 4
