    Odd charging pattern

    posted by prosper on 01/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Cons:
    -> was still attempting to charge my 18650, even when cell voltage was at 4.25V -> charges in pulses - high voltage pulse, pau...

    Choosy with batteries

    posted by dannyc on 12/28/2009 Certified Owner

    Cons:
    Does NOT work with SKU26124 and SKU3435. It seems that these 14500 batteries are a bit too long for the battery bay on this sos...
