  • Nice - but...

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

    Pros:

    It's a good charger for unprotected 18650 bateries.
    When the green LED lights up after charging, the battery is somewhere between 4.16 and 4.19 Volts.

    Cons:

    It's really tight! Protected UniqueFire Cells (29031) don't fit easily and the plastic protection of the battery will be damaged when inserted or removed. 1 -2 mm more space would be enough. But the plastig got weak when I tried to widen it.

    OtherThoughts:

    The case could be a bit wider to fit protected cells as well...

    Bottomline:

    I use the charger for unprotected cells I salvaged from laptop battery packs. Since I use unprotected LiPo Cells in my model planes, I'm not scared of it.
    Unprotected cells just have to be handled a bit more carefully.
