  • Pretty good

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Very sturdy build and nicely painted.

    It comes in AL case.

    Lot of cables/connectors and thermal probe.

    Depends on where are you from, but for me it costs about half price!

    Beeping sound can ba switched off! :)

    Cons:

    1. Transistors.

    Well it's not really a con since you can put away the back panel and bend them if it's needed.

    I just think that they could be better (more amps)

    The price of better transistors is just few cents more so there is no reason for it.

    They "should" take 5 amps but I doubt that they will work for very long.

    2. If the source is just 0,1V more than 18V the charger will stop working.

    OtherThoughts:

    The transistors should be better so they don't heat up so much.(since they are not properly cooled)

    OR

    they could be mounted on the back panel with a screw. (like it's normally done)

    Bottomline:

    I didn't tried to charge really strong batteries so I can't talk about it but I'm charging 7,4v 950mAh Lipo with 1A and it works without problems.

    (The charger is quite cool at these settings)

    I think if you know about electronics you could find a replacement for the transistors.

    But for the price it's really good.
