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

    Pros:

    - 2 independent channels
    - NO wallwart or powerbrick
    - Takes any voltage from 100 to 250 VAC
    - 1A charging current per channel
    - small and compact

    Cons:

    - Indicator lights seem a little confusing to me:

    When power is connected the left LED turns green.

    While charging left channel it turns red.

    Right LED only turns on red while charging and goes off afterwards.



    So I would guess

    left green + right off = power

    left red / right red = channel is charging

    left green / right off = corresponding channel is done charging



    I am used to: All leds of, red while charging, green charging done ok... but not a real problem



    OtherThoughts:

    Can't really comment on cutoff voltages since I used protected 1850's. But since the leds went off/green when the cells where about 4.2 V it seems to be working correctly

    Bottomline:

    I don't regret buying it at all. Good charging current, independent channels, compact size, no external converter, will work in any country (with plug adapter) - That's what I want for a charger.

    I more conclusive way for the status leds would be nice but you get oused to it ;-)
