Weekly Giveaway – Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Power

Delkin is offering you folks a special discount on this charger if you can’t wait to see if you get one in the weekly giveaway.
Enter “INDUCED” at checkout on their website to get a 15% discount on the charger (and all plates & accessories) through Feb 5th at midnight. And if you dig that, we may be able to work out more of these.

………and now back to our regularly scheduled program:

OK, let’s help you with some gear that you will use all the time.

For years, we’ve been looking for the sweetest battery charger for our cameras that would be small and give us a better idea on charging status that the status light on or off.
One we can easily use around the world, with maybe just a plug adapter, and no transformer. And charge more than one battery at a time.

Well, we started to use the Delkin Dual Universal Battery Charger on our past few trips and it was perfect.
The size was just right, as there was no wasted space on this unit. It is a 2 sided charger, with the ability to charge a different manufacturers battery on each side . Just by switching out single battery plates

we were able to charge our still (NIkon) AND video camera (Canon) batteries at the same time. That is the Dual part of the name.

This is a major advantage as you use one less outlet. Trust us, in a hotel we’ll take it.
And the unit came with a long enough cord allowing us to keep the unit plugged in and conveniently on the dresser.

So here is how it works: Choose a battery plate for each side, slip them onto the charging block, the status lights will show you how full the battery is from 25%,50%, and 100%.
Yeah, so what they all do that. BUT…this one allows you to charge 2 different batteries at the same time in a nice small package.
Each battery has its own circuit so the monitoring process makes this like having 2 chargers in one unit. Perfect for the trip.
We like to keep the whole setup in a nifty MUJI net bag, so we can see what’s in there and make sure the separate plates stay together. With power cord, plates, car charger and the unit itself, its best to get it it’s own bag.

There you go. Charge 1, 2 of the same or different batteries. At the same time.
( I wish I had a perfect ShamWow Guy line here. But I got nothing. Although you can click for a video laugh.)

That’s what we’re using and we’re going to give away a complete Delkin Power setup to one of you, complete with 2 sets of battery plates, AC cords, and a car charger. Plus it’s available with your specific countries plug size.

The details on the giveaway will be in this weeks NEWSLETTER, coming at subscribers on Weds. @ 9:00AM PST.
