Pretty good – Mystery LCD Digital Balance Charger and Discharger (1~6 Cell Lithium / 1~15 Cell NiCD/NiMH) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Very sturdy build and nicely painted.
It comes in AL case.
Lot of cables/connectors and thermal probe.
Depends on where are you from, but for me it costs about half price!
Beeping sound can ba switched off! :)
Cons:
1. Transistors.
Well it's not really a con since you can put away the back panel and bend them if it's needed.
I just think that they could be better (more amps)
The price of better transistors is just few cents more so there is no reason for it.
They "should" take 5 amps but I doubt that they will work for very long.
2. If the source is just 0,1V more than 18V the charger will stop working.
Other:
The transistors should be better so they don't heat up so much.(since they are not properly cooled)
OR
they could be mounted on the back panel with a screw. (like it's normally done)
Bottomline:
I didn't tried to charge really strong batteries so I can't talk about it but I'm charging 7,4v 950mAh Lipo with 1A and it works without problems.
(The charger is quite cool at these settings)
I think if you know about electronics you could find a replacement for the transistors.
But for the price it's really good.
