TELESIN makes all kinds of GoPro accessories, and if you haven`t seent the Dome review check it out HERE. This time, let’s take a peek at one of the newest products in their lineup – the TELESIN ALLIN Box Charger for GoPro cameras.
It`s a bit different than your usual multi-charger and I have used TELESIN chargers before. But this one is a three-in-one device that can be used as:
- A triple charger
- A card reader
- Battery and Micro SD card storage
It comes with TWO 1220mAh Batteries (Same as GoPro originals) so with the GoPro original, you will have a full set. Slide the batteries in the box and you can charge them independently and simultaneously. You can pull out a fully charged battery or add an empty one, it will not disrupt the charging progress of the other batteries. To fully charge all three batteries together it takes about 2.5h. The USB-C type charging cable is included and you can plug it at the back of the TELESIN ALLIN Box Charger.
The Charging port is covered with a rubber lid that keeps dust and debris out of the port but will not make it waterproof. The Charger box is rated IP54, so this means the box is dust and spray proof. You can probably have it dangling on your backpack in decent rainfall but that`s about it. The seal of the cover is not that tight so don`t consider it as waterproof- it’s not meant to be!
Inside the top lid, you will find TWO slots for your MicroSD cards. I think it`s a great solution so you can keep all your spare batteries and spare MicroSD cards in one place securely so you always know where your backups are. The TELESIN Charger is a great storage box thanks to its dust and splashproof design. The lid locks down pretty secure and the release button at the front is under the rubber coating so you will not push down on it accidentally. The soft rubber coating also protects the box from impacts, should you drop it on a heavy surface.
The gray rubber coating is really nice and improves grip even when wet and offers collision dampening but a soft silicone attracts dust and small hair so easily. I threw it in my backpack and It took on so much small dirt it looked like it had been there for ages. Or maybe I’m just too freaking dirty and should clean by backpack more often 😀
The lanyard at the top of the Box allows you to clip the box to your backpack or secure it to your belt if you need to have the option to get to your spare batteries or MicroSD cards really fast without digging around in your bag but I don`t think I would keep it outside too much. Too easy to pop the lid open and take what’s inside if someone wants to.
Things I love
- Dust and splash proof
- Individual indicator lights for batteries
- MicroSD card reader
- Cool design
Things I dont like
- The rubber coating takes on dust really easily
It`s a pretty straightforward product and if you own a GoPro camera you pretty much ALWAYS need more juice. So just the charger and the batteries are worth the money. The card reader function and the storage option is just a bonus.
It’s really reasonably priced and for 39USD you get to batteries and the charger.
