Average charger – TrustFire TR-001 Multi-Purpose Lithium Battery Charger Reviews

posted by 15miki15 on 07/07/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Charges my 14500 and 18650. Easy and working. Dual channel that works.
Cons:
Tricke charge. I have to use 12VAC adapter (+ diode bridge) for better safety (I saw many TR-001 burned when used on our 230V). Slow charge rate.
Other:
Ok. I implemented diode bridge inside and Iam using it on 12VAC adapter.
Open circuit voltage : 4,21V (both channels)
Turns green at : 4,19-4,20V (both channels) then tricke charge to 4,21V
Current at start to empty cell : ~600mA (charging 1 cell), ~300mA (charging 1 cells)
Charged empty TrustFire 900mAh 1x14500 in 3h15min.
Bottomline:
My first li-ion charger from dx. Slow charge rate is not problem for me. Worth money for me.
