  • Average charger

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Charges my 14500 and 18650. Easy and working. Dual channel that works.

    Cons:

    Tricke charge. I have to use 12VAC adapter (+ diode bridge) for better safety (I saw many TR-001 burned when used on our 230V). Slow charge rate.

    OtherThoughts:

    Ok. I implemented diode bridge inside and Iam using it on 12VAC adapter.

    Open circuit voltage : 4,21V (both channels)

    Turns green at : 4,19-4,20V (both channels) then tricke charge to 4,21V

    Current at start to empty cell : ~600mA (charging 1 cell), ~300mA (charging 1 cells)

    Charged empty TrustFire 900mAh 1x14500 in 3h15min.

    Bottomline:

    My first li-ion charger from dx. Slow charge rate is not problem for me. Worth money for me.
