One of Solar Technology’s most popular gadgets has scooped us another accolade, this time in Britain’s most popular photography magazine.
The CamCaddy2 is a compact universal charger, designed to re-energize any camera battery. Mr Riley describes the unit as ‘an ideal travel companion for photographers using multiple cameras’, adding: “I used the CamCaddy2 during a European fishing trip, and found the ability to charge my Canon EOS 5D Mark II battery from a power bank incredibly useful.
CamCaddy2’s smart technology detects the battery’s polarity and voltage rating automatically, and its adjustable fitting means that any block-style battery can be charged quickly, safely and with minimum fuss. A digital readout shows the percentage of charge currently in the battery, as well as the expected time to charge.
The unit is designed to take its power from the Solar Technology Freeloader iSIS, but can equally well be used with any device with a USB outlet, such as a laptop. AP’s review adds: “The advantage of the USB charging functionality, combined with a great battery charger, is huge.”
As well as being available on its own the CamCaddy2 comes as part of our Globetrotter Click package, designed to bring daylight-driven convenience to anyone travelling with a camera.
Awarding the Testbench Gold 5/5 rating, AP also paid tribute to the CamCaddy2’s design, which puts all that clever technology in a lightweight, strong, tactile case. In conclusion, the reviewer added: “The CamCaddy2 is well-built, sturdy and is a worthy kit-bag companion for any travelling photographer.”
With more than 130 years’ experience of the photography under its belt, Amateur Photographer clearly knows a good product when it sees one.
