  • Quite a money saver

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

    Pros:

    This charger is very, very cheap. If you use 18650 batteries in your lights, this will save you a ton of money as opposed to buying CR123As.

    It can charge 2 18650 cells up to 4.2V (measured with a multimeter).

    It has an LED which lights in red when the batteries are charging and then turns to green when the batteries are fully charged

    Cons:

    Not really a con, but it doesn't come with a standard EU plug, you will have to buy SKU: 3529 to make it work with a 220V plug, but for the price of both, I'm just nitpicking :)

    A higher input than 600mAh would be nice, as fully charging 2 18650 cells with a capacity of 2400 mAh will take almost 6 hours.

    OtherThoughts:

    Very compact (small size), which means you can take it with you on a vacation without sacrificing too much space.

    Bottomline:

    If you are using 18650 cells, which are probably the AAs of the future, don't hesitate and buy now! You won't be dissapointed
