Great for the price! – UltraFire 3.0V/3.6V CR123A Charger Reviews

posted by fastenuf on 07/26/2007

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

Pros:
Mine charges fine and the indicator lights work to tell you when the battery is charged. I use 3v batteries and the indicator comes on at around 3.3v.
Cons:
My charger continues to slow charge after the batteries are full which is dangerous with lithium batteries.
Other:
My charger works if I monitor it. When the charger lights turn green I check the voltage, then put the batteries back in until they reach around 3.6v. They slow down after 3.3v is reached so this takes a couple of more hours. I keep the charger in a small cast iron skillet in case I forget to take the batteries out and they get too hot.
Bottomline:
Charger works and is cheap, but I wish the auto off feature was more reliable. Then the charger would be perfect!
