"EU-plug", but useless for germany, short rewiev

    The foldable two round pins are nice, but simply too short to connect to a german wall outlet.
    It definitely needs an adapter like sku.290024, that can take two round pins, to connect it to the wall outlet. I tested it, and it kind of "works". The adapter sits ok, but the foldable pins loose the connection inside the adapter...

    There is no LiIon-charging chip inside, only some transistors and so on, charging works.
    The "Max. Output Current: 500A" is clearly wrong, but it's not even 500mA: it's 150mA to an empty 14500 (3,3V)
    The battery is very loose in this charger, it's only clamped between the positive and negative connector.

    Mechanically the charger was not ok (wrong mounted): the negative plate, that connects to the slider, was not in it's place. Also there is the spring that holds the slider: it sits very close to the positive connector, and there is no insulation, high risk of shorting the battery!

    Summary:
    only buy this, if you want to spend your time fixing it.

    Max. Output Current 500A

    LOL. I can just see their marketing slogan: Vaporise your battery!
