  • Cheap slow charger, useful for low mAh batteries

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

    Pros:

    * Charges batteries slowly. This is important for batteries with low mAh ratings and/or low charging rate ratings. While this does mean that it'll take more than a day to charge a single 18650, it is perfect for prolonging the lifespan of small batteries like 10440s.
    * Able to charge a variety of chemistries.
    * Small and portable. The outlet prongs fold up into the body for storage and transportation.

    Cons:

    * I've already stated it as a pro, but this charger is very slow, which is fine if that is what you are looking for. However, it will take much longer to finish charging than other chargers, so if you are looking for speed, buy something else.
    * Device feel a bit on the flimsy side, but time will tell if that is an issue.

    Bottomline:

    Excellent slow charger. Buy it if you have a lot of small batteries. It also makes a good gift charger.
