  • charger for 18650 euroconnector

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

    Pros:

    Nice fast charger for two 18650 at the same time, charging complete separate so different cells or cells with different charginglevels are no problem at all.
    The leds show chargingprocess (red orange green)
    and detect cellfailures (under 2.75V), charge untill 4.20V is reached, what can take several hours (about 4H max) and cut off te chargingcurrent when 4.20 VDC is reached so also unprotected cells and 16350 (3.7 V CR123 rechargables) can be charged , the last ones with Nd-magnets to fill the gap.

    Cons:

    None, some can say that the powerline is fixed but chargers with separate powercords have the problem that the d... cords are always anywhere else.

    OtherThoughts:

    An internal input for 12VDC to use them in a car would be fine but other types DX have can do that also.
    The fixed 3.7 V makes these chargers unsuitable for 3V rechargables but that prohibits the use of wrong batteries.

    Bottomline:

    Nice , reliable charger wich is everywhere usable, maybe an american adapter (sold separately) can be handy.
    These chargers work as well with AC AND DC as long as the voltage is between about 90 and 250 V.
    The switching powersupply has a very high efficiency, the charger istselve does not become warm/hot and uses almost no current when chargingprocess has ended
