Best charger in this price range! – TrustFire TR-001 Multi-Purpose Lithium Battery Charger Reviews

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

Pros:
Looks like a serious tool.
Charges the batteries very accurate! (more at Other Thoughts)
Very good price for such charger!
Status LED’s are easy to understand and looks very good.
Two-channel charging - can simultaneously charge the batteries of different capacities (the both batteries will always be fully charged)!
Replaceable 8-style power cord (there is no need to buy the EU adapter, you can simply use a different cable - for example from a CD player, printer, or camera battery charger).
Can easily insert different size batteries without the use of extensions or wires.
Cons:
Not yet, because it works great! Maybe just:
When connected to the AC 230V leads to a slight noise, after a few minutes, it disappears.
Other:
Simultaneously with this charger ordered rechargeable batteries Soshine RCR123A (sku.13811). Charging time from ~3V to full of these batteries are approximately 2h20min (one is charging about 5 minutes faster, but it could also be less empty). Measuring the full batteries voltages: 1st battery 4.20V, 2nd battery 4.21V (ideally).
Tried to charge the 18650 batteries - put in the charger without any problems.
Bottomline:
Very good charger, the best in this price range! I think that buying this charger, you can not make mistake (of course some item can be Waster).
