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

    Pros:

    universal charger, gives you a possibility to charge wide range of LiIon cells and can be used in car or with AC mains. gives 5.3V on open circuit.
    - low charging current, gives me 360mA, so it is ok to use it with 10440;
    - no trickle charge;
    - cut-off at 4.18A both channels;

    Cons:

    - doesn't fit trustfire protected 18650 (neither blue nor black, they are up to 68mm max), need to disassemble and modify body to give more space for sliding contacts;

    OtherThoughts:

    side contacts can be soldered easily to charge 16340 but it is better to leave them as is and use a spacer for these purposes - there is no polarity specified on charger's body for these contacts. also you can accidentally make a short circuit for 18650 with damaged envelope.

    Bottomline:

    imho the best LiIon car charger on DX.
