FAST charger for Li-Ion – TrustFire TR-005 All-in-One Battery Charger Reviews

posted by Albertosoto on 07/18/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
FAST charger. It has a charge current of +-1.5A It can charge Li-Ion(4.2V selector) and LiFePo4 (3V selector)
Cons:
It gets pretty hot when charging. No 12V input.
Other:
Fast charger! measured a current of 1.7A when charging a 26650 4000mAh. Be aware what cells you charge on this. Small size (small capacity) Li-Ion can't be charged, as it will charge TOO fast for them. At a 1.5A rated current, I would only charge on this batteries that have almost real 1500mAh.
Bottomline:
A fast charger for high capacity Li-Ion batteries. Charging a good 26650 on a WF139 or similar took too much time. With this charger it only took 3 hours and a few minutes to go from 3.0V to 4.21V.
